Justin Bieber wants to appeal to an older crowd and he's getting inspiration from a former 1990s boy band member.According to Bieber's songwriter, the 16-year-old will try to imitate Justin Timberlake on his next album.

Sean Garrett told Billboard that they're trying to "segue" Bieber into young adulthood.

He said they want to attract new fans who are in their early 20s.

Garrett said they're using Timberlake's success from his last album with 'N Sync to his first solo album as an example.
