Justin Bieber shows off his shirtless body on the cover of Men’s Health‘s April 2015 issue, out on newsstands on Tuesday (March 10)!
Here’s what he had to share with the mag:
On life: “It’s good to really take a step back and be appreciative and understand that life brought me to an incredible place.”
On his body: “You know I’m just getting bigger, man. It’s like, my shoulders don’t fit in some things.”
On turning 21: “It’s funny. I still feel…like a kid. I just still feel young. I don’t feel like I’m almost 21. At all.”
On his legal troubles: “This has really been a big year for me, as far as figuring stuff out. This is almost like a full 180 from how I was. Yesterday—a year from yesterday—I was in jail.”
On Calvin Klein ad: “I never thought I’d see my own billboard in on Sunset, in Hollywood. I remember just thinking that I’d never even go to Hollywood, living in a small town in Canada, just like watching TV. That was never even a thought.”
On growing up in the public eye: “I had to grow up so quick. And it was almost like I grew up for the public but I didn’t necessarily grow up. There were things I had to do, as far as the way I had to make relationships, and conversation, but as far as actually growing up, there were a lot of things I missed out on.”
On maturing: “There’s a part of me that I don’t ever want to grow up. I want to always remain…to have that sense of purity inside of me where I don’t…I don’t want to lose that sense of purity.”
On relationships: “I’m very much a relationship guy. I like to bounce ideas off the person that I love. I like having a real connection…”
On being different: “I’ve always been different, and I haven’t been afraid to be different.”
On a change in his life: “It’s good to be a bit easy on yourself. Not that you’re just like doing whatever you want, but easy on yourself in that you’re not going to figure everything out overnight, and figure everything out on your own. You’re going to need help, and you’re going to need time. Change is uncomfortable. Write that down.”
The April 2015 issue of Men’s Health is available in iTunes on March 10, and hits newsstands nationwide by March 17.
