Justin Bieber sat down with his pal Ellen DeGeneres today for an interview about all the new changes in his life/career: new singles, new single-dom, new blank baseball caps. In terms of relationships, we already knew that Biebs is on the hunt for someone to spoon with, but he reiterated on Ellen that he’s “single and ready to mingle.” More importantly, though, he addressed that butt pic he posted and deleted earlier this summer which kicked off a male pop star bare-ass trend.

And he’s sticking to his guns. Lest you think he deleted the photo due to the pressure of a panicking PR team or to build up more interest in the post, Bieber told Ellen that one of his friends contacted him after the post went up because the friend’s little kid saw the image.

“So I felt bad about it so I took it down,” Biebs explained, echoing his Instagram explanation from July.

During the interview, he also joked that he hooked up with Madonna and unveiled the truth behind the dolphin squeal sound on “Where Are U Now.” (Ellen wasn’t buying either story, even though we know he was at least telling the truth about the sound.)
