5 Things We Learned From Justin Bieber’s Revealing Interview With GQ Magazine


Ever since Justin Bieber’s newfound maturity has spread over the world like a warm blanket, we have been waiting for a detailed interview with the 21-year-old singer to come out. After losing a lot of support with his bad boy behavior in 2014, no one can deny Justin Bieber has made an impressive comeback.

He’s at the top once again. Nearly all his songs from his new album Purpose are hits, and it’s not just 13-year-old girls from California enjoying them. The whole world is digging Justin’s new sound. Heck, I’ll admit that ‘Love Yourself’ is still one of my favorite songs at the moment.

So where does Bieber stand right now? Well, GQ has delivered with a wonderful interview featuring the superstar.

5. He’s Too Young And Too Famous To Settle Down

During the interview, Bieber admitted the breakup with Selena Gomez was “bad,” and some feelings were obviously hurt in the process. It’s something he wants to avoid in the future, which is why he’s not going to rush into a relationship with Hailey Baldwin.

“I know that in the past I’ve hurt people and said things that I didn’t mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I’m just more so looking at the future, making sure I’m not damaging them. What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged. It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. It’s so hard.… I just don’t want to hurt her.”

4. He Has A Stronger Relationship With His Father Now

Back in the early days, Justin Bieber and his mother Pattie Mallette were extremely close, and his father Jeremy Bieber wasn’t really in the picture. It looks like things have changed now. The Biebs and his mother started arguing a lot back in 2014 during his rough patch, and it seems to have damaged their relationship just a little. “I’m a lot closer to my dad than I am to my mom,” he admits during the interview.

But he also makes it clear he doesn’t need them as much now that he’s older…

“You don’t need them as much. And for them, it’s like, you were all they had. Not all, but they were so invested in you. And then one day you’re just gone, and you’re doing your own thing, and you don’t need them, and you don’t value their opinion the same, either.”
