Justin Bieber recently sat down with GQ for their March cover story and had some very Bieber things to say. From pet monkeys to his relationship with God, here are some of the interview highlights.
Me and my boys have been doing this thing where we moon each other whenever we take a picture. ... My boys—we do this wherever we are. It's like a last-second thing: They go to take a picture, and I just turn [around]...
I don't want to put anyone in a position where they feel like I'm only theirs, only to be hurt in the end. Right now in my life, I don't want to be held down by anything. I already have a lot that I have to commit to. A lot of responsibilities. I don't want to feel like the girl I love is an added responsibility. I know that in the past I've hurt people and said things that I didn't mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I'm just more so looking at the future, making sure I'm not damaging them.
I feel like that's why I have a relationship with Him, because I need it. I suck by myself. Like, when I'm by myself and I feel like I have nothing to lean on? Terrible. Terrible person. If I was doing this on my own, I would constantly be doing things that are, I mean, I still am doing things that are stupid, but… It just gives me some sort of hope and something to grasp onto, and a feeling of security, and a feeling of being wanted, and a feeling of being desired, and I feel like we can only get so much of that from a human.
Yeah, one day. Just gotta make sure I got a house and it stays in the fucking house. I'm not gonna bring him to Germany or travel with it anymore. People are always like, 'Why did you get a monkey?' If you could get a monkey, well, you would get a fucking monkey, too! Monkeys are awesome.
Everyone, when they start growing up, realizes, 'Man, I did some dumb shit when I was younger.' It's not just me.… If I could go back, I wouldn't really change much. I think it's all my journey. That stuff made me who I am.
