Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber appears in GQ’s June 2012 issue, but it’s not a standard interview piece. It’s a profile, written by Drew Magary after spending an afternoon and evening with Bieber at his studio in Los Angeles. It’s a great read, you can find the full piece here.
But here are some excerpted Bieber gems:
Justin Bieber on partying: “For me, it’s just like, I like to be in control of myself. I mean, I’ve had a beer, like, before…. But I never get out of control.”
…on distrusting the music business: “I mean, I keep my guard up a lot, because you know, you can’t trust anyone in this business. That’s what’s sad. You can’t trust anybody. I learned the hard way.”
…on his catalog of songs: “I’ve never made a bad song.”
…on Kim Kardashian: “People say she doesn’t do anything; she actually does do stuff…. She works hard.”
Bieber’s producer, when asked if Bieber gets his feelings hurt while working on songs: “He hurts feelings.”
