Justin Bieber Covers ‘Billboard,’ Says He’s ‘Not In The Happiest Place’

Justin Bieber frequents the Billboard cover world quite a bit, and he’s back again for their latest issue, hitting stands tomorrow (January 28th). “Tried to be honest,” Biebs tweeted with a link to a pic of the cover. The cover story, titled “Justin Time,” discusses Bieber’s journey leading up to his Believe Acoustic release, which arrives a day after the issue drops on January 29th.

In the piece, Bieber reveals, “I’m not in the happiest place that I’ve ever been.” He says that he tries to translate heartbreak into music, which is a not-so-subtle hint that he and Selena Gomez may be over for good.

According to Billboard, if Justin scores another #1 hit with Believe Acoustic, then he’ll have two more historical moments under his belt: As the first artist under 19 to have five chart-topping albums (he’s tied with Miley Cyrus at four, presently), and also, he’ll be the tenth act to have a #1 album four years in a row. If he manages to crush those broken records, perhaps that will ease his broken heart.
