Offering even more relationship advice no one asked for, Justin Bieber covers Seventeen Magazine May 2012 (there’s no anecdote about how to assuage a girlfriend’s concerns about a paternity scandal, odd). Seventeen phoned in the shoot and interview a little, but this is passable. It’s the usual sub-Teen Vogue fair. It’s cliche photos and near boilerplate interviews.
On his role model: “Usher is who I look to for guidance. From the beginning, he told me to put family first and you’ll always succeed, because your family will never leave you. He told me to always stay humble and never forget where I came from.”
On keeping the same fans as they age out: “A lot of times, when artists grow older, they lose their younger fans because they’re just trying to get older fans. But if you try to make good music, then you’ll just appease everybody. I just want to make music that’s good for everybody.”
On being romantic to please his girlfriend: “I’m just trying to make her happy, that’s all. I think it’s important to make all women feel like they’re princesses, because every girl is a princess. I’m serious.”
On not wasting food: “Recently, there were so many things in my rider that went to waste, so I took a lot of things off my rider. Every day we were buying all this stuff and it was just sitting there. I got rid of it, I didn’t want to waste all the food.” – via Seventeen Magazine.
