Justin Bieber Goes Shirtless For i-D Magazine: 7 Tattoo-Filled Photos
Justin Bieber is winning the hearts of America once again as he promotes his “bad boy gone good” persona and upcoming Purpose album — but that isn’t stopping the pop star from taking his shirt off (again)!
The “Sorry” singer graces the cover of i-D magazine’s winter issue, where he is showing off every inch of his tattoo-covered abs and pecs as well as freshly-dyed platinum blonde hair in the Alasdair McLellan-photographed editorial.
In the interview, the 21-year-old discusses his “comeback” year: “People are really interested because of the transition from boy to man. It was tough because I had to really stick to my guns. I was like, ‘I’m going to fight it. I’m going to fight what you say, even if you guys are going to stop pushing my project. I would rather not be successful than let you steal this from me.’ Finally, I’d pushed for so long and been so consistent — ‘It’s either this way or it’s no way, you let me do this or nothing’ — that they let me do what I wanted to do.”
He also confirms that he does, in fact, smoke weed (like almost every other person in the music industry). “I mean, honestly, it’s just about perception. At the end of the day, there are people who don’t think that’s good. And if they don’t feel that’s good then I don’t want to make people feel uncomfortable. So I’m not going to put it in their face,” Bieber states.
