Justin Bieber: "I'm Kind of Looking" for a Girlfriend

Listen up, teen girls! The 16-year-old floppy-haired singer says he's completely unattached

Teen girls everywhere will be thrilled to hear the news that Justin Bieber is single -- and ready to mingle.

"I'm single," Bieber, 16, told People.com at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. "I'm kind of looking, but I'm kind of trying to stay single."

But if he were to start up a romance, he has a pretty specific idea of what kind of girl he'd go for. "An ideal girl is someone who is funny – who can make me laugh," Bieber says. "And someone who has nice eyes and a nice smile."

And, of course, she would have to get the okay from Beiber's mom, which may be the biggest hurdle of them all.

"My mom didn't even want me dating, but that kind of didn't work," he says, adding that he "definitely" wants someone who would gel with the main woman in his life.
