For someone completely shut out of this year's Grammy nominations, Justin Bieber sure knows how to look on the bright side.

In an interview on the Ellen Degeneres Show the pop star says: "I was looking forward to [a possible Grammy nomination], but I know it will happen one day. I'm so young, I'm only 18. I'm just blessed to be able to do what I love every day. And the AMAs was a lot of fun for me so, hopefully, one day."

Regardless, the Biebs is on to bigger and better things. The “Boyfriend” singer confirmed that this January he will release an acoustic album, which he was tweeting about last week.

"It's something the fans really like," Bieber said of the album.

"Because I started out on YouTube just playing my guitar, just singing without all the production, so I like to just put out acoustic albums. I think it's more intimate."
