Justin Bieber Graduates from High School!

The teen pop star says his mom inspired him to finish school: "I had to do it for her"

Cue the "Pomp and Circumstance" because Justin Bieber is officially done with school!

Between spending time with girlfriend Selena Gomez, promoting his new fragrance, jaunting around the globe and making new music, the international superstar somehow found the time to complete his coursework and graduate from high school.

"I passed my test -- I'm free," the 18-year-old pop star tells the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph newspaper. "It was hard doing school and work every day."

So what propelled him to buckle down with his books when he already has everything a guy could want? Bieber reveals his inspiration was his no. 1 fan (and we don't mean Selena).

"That was something my mom really wanted me to do, so I had to do it for her," he says, referring to his mom Pattie Mallette. "I mean, this kind of lifestyle has given me a different perspective on life."

Apparently that perspective of fame and fortune has not compelled the Biebs to apply for higher education. It doesn't look like the singer will be enrolling in college.

"I've been able to travel the world," he adds. "At school, usually you have to do a lot of writing and reading. I'm really not into that stuff. I like to be out there."
