After years of major missteps and bad decisions, Justin Bieber would like to reintroduce himself.
Or at least that’s what he told GQ. The 21-year-old singer appears on the March cover of GQ magazine with the headline “Let Us Now Forgive Justin Bieber.”
Bieber is featured in a collection of suits and skinny ties, sporting some facial hair and looking rather mature. Although some may be questioning whether the star will actually change his ways, he claims he is grown up now.
“Everyone when they start growing up realizes, ‘Man, I did some dumb shit when I was younger,’” he told GQ. “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.”
Bieber also cleared up some confusion about his hit song “Sorry.” While some people took the song as a public apology for his past mistakes, “It really had nothing to do with that… It was about a girl,” he explained to GQ.
