Nineties baby Justin Bieber is finally emerging from the ashes of his terrible, drag racing teenagerhood. He released an album filled with stupidly addictive songs, he wore Saint Laurent to the VMAs, he came back for another Calvin Klein campaign with more muscle mass than ever before. Now, he's covering GQ's March issue alongside the line: "Let Us Now Forgive Justin Bieber." The full story comes out on Thursday, and we're already clicking.
For this leg of his "public-apology tour" — GQ's words — the magazine styled Bieber in a variety of suits, skinny ties and a whisper of facial hair. Also, grown-out roots beneath blonde highlights, as though to tip a hat to the moments of poor judgment littering the 21-year-old's Wikipedia page.
Friends, this is a good cover no matter how you slice it. Here's hoping we see more of the Biebs courtside at some fashion shows in the coming weeks.
