Cop a gander of Justin Bieber!
The Pop pin-up posts up on the latest cover of Billboard Magazine.
Aptly timed, the feature arrives exactly a week before the star releases his new album ‘Justice’ (on March 19).
A candid interview accompanies the vivid shoot (which was lensed by Sami Drasin).
Within, Bieber opens up about his LP, his faith, turning a new leaf, limiting access, and more.
Pics and quotes after the jump…
On His Goals For ‘Justice’ – His Second Album In 13 Months:
“At this point, I’ve reached a level of success so many times that I know success isn’t a be-all, end-all to my happiness.”
On His Mindframe With This Project Cycle:
“I think this is the first time in my life where I’ve actually enjoyed the process of releasing an album.”
On Turning A New Leaf:
“I just want to be somebody who can say, ‘Look, I did some things that I’m not too proud of, but I took a look in the mirror and decided to make some changes, and you can too.”
On What He Thanks God For Most:
“That I’m forgiven.”
Excerpt On How He Maintains Balance:
He uses an iPad for this communication because he does not possess a cellphone, which isn’t actually that normal but gives him the power to limit who can reach him. “I definitely learned how to have boundaries, and I just don’t feel like I owe anybody anything,” says Bieber. “That has helped me to be able to just say no and just be firm in it and know that my heart [wants] to help people, but I can’t do everything. I want to sometimes, but it’s just not sustainable.”
