Reporter Drew Magary did an interview Justin Bieber for the June issue of GQ Magazine and I cannot stress enough how much you need to click here and read the entire article. I mean, I will give you some excerpts that will make you roll your eyes but the article will really really make you all eye rolly. Here’s a bit of what you can read in the article;
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.”
Yes, Justin Bieber has never made a bad song everyone! He is clearly a genius and we all should bow down to his genius-ness. The best part of the article isn’t Justin’s comical answers but the reporter’s commentary on his interview process. I don’t know how GQ manages to get so many awesome interviews, because they definitely aren’t sugar coated. Reminds me of the interview that was done with Drake a few months ago, which was also eye-roll worthy.
Anyway, if Beiber’s quotes didn’t make you roll your eyes you really need to read the entire article. I have noticed lately how Justin has seemed to sway from his good old Canadian boy roots and become very much a product of Hollywood and this article basically reaffirms that. That boy says ‘swag’ way too much for his own good.
Go read it and let me know what you think. The June issue of GQ is on newsstands on May 22nd.
