Justin Bieber is all grown up on the cover of GQ. The pop heartthrob graces the March issue, his first for the men’s magazine.
“Let us now forgive Justin Bieber,” reads the tagline.
After wearing nothing but his Calvins in his latest CK ad, the Biebs takes over GQ by snapping his fingers in a polka dot shirt and tie combo, sporting three gold rings. The dapper singer also appears on a dual cover, rocking a fitted turquoise suit and a skinny black tie.
Other shots from the issue have also been unveiled. In one, the “Love Yourself” hitmaker dons a white shirt and a black suit with a matching bow tie. And yes, ladies, he also appears shirtless.
In the interview, which will be revealed in full tomorrow, Bieber opens up about how “Sorry” wasn’t exactly an apology to the world, as some made it out to be.
“People ran with that—that I was like, apologizing with that song and stuff,” he explains. “It really had nothing to do with that…It was about a girl.”
In fact, Bieber doesn’t regret many of his past transgressions. “Everyone when they start growing up realizes, ‘Man, I did some dumb shit when I was younger,'” he says. “It’s not just me…If I could go back I wouldn’t really change much. I think it’s all my journey. That stuff made me who I am.”
His rumored girlfriend Hailey Baldwin also comes up in the interview. While he’s mostly tight-lipped, he does open up about what the model means to him.
“Someone I really love,” he says. “We spend a lot of time together.”
