Justin Bieber is laying it all out on the table.
As he prepares to release his new album, Purpose, on Friday (Nov. 13, 2015), the singer sat down with i-D magazine for an intimate interview. In it, he spoke about his new sound, his bleached blonde hair, Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, and much more.
The “Sorry” singer graces the cover of i-D magazine’s winter 2015 issue, where he shows off his abs (of course), his tattoos, and his freshly-dyed platinum blonde hair.
On his new sound: “I think it’s more relatable now. When I had that young voice it was hard for people to connect. Dudes can listen to it now and say, ‘Yeah, I like that new Bieber song.'”
On his relationship with Selena: “I think with that relationship…I put so much of myself on the line with her, because I was so distant with everyone else. So it’s like, you have the world who’s loving you but it’s not like they know my heart — they don’t know me. So when I found that love I was just like, ‘Woah, I want to hold on to this.’ And I just put everything into it and in reality there’s just no holding back. You’re just like, ‘This love feels so good.'”
On Kendall, Gigi Hadid, and Hailey Baldwin: “They are literally the sweetest girls. They have the best hearts. They care about me in the same way that I care about them. When people say mean things about them, I get defensive and when it happens to me they get defensive.”
On Kanye West: “Kanye’s the best. He just talks. For so long. And it’s so dope. Even when it sounds crazy, I know that I’m listening to how he feels because he always puts things into such a different perspective.”
On his bleached hair: “Blondes do have more fun.”
