In his new Billboard cover story, the 21-year-old pop star gets candid about everything from his nude photo leak to how his wild period affected his relationship with his mother.
But there’s one thing he’s not quite ready for: Selena Gomez‘s new album Revival. While Bieber tells Billboard, “I’m proud of the woman she is today,” he can’t bring himself to listen to her latest album.
“I know I had a lot of play in that one. I don’t know what she’s saying about me,” he admits. Part of the reason is that the wound is still fresh: “When you love someone that much, even if something comes between you, it’s a love that never really dies.”
