The magazine is releasing two covers, each of which uses the headline, “Justin’s Crazy Year.” And to think, they came up with this before the battery incident, getting banned from a few nightclubs, having his pet monkey getting confiscated and possibly even before he threw a shirtless hissy fit on his 19th birthday!

Inside the magazine, Bieber addresses the haters yet again and says:
    “My Twitter is really nice. I have so many fans that I rarely ever see a nasty tweet. I don’t read YouTube comments because those can get you sad. I see so much stuff on the Internet, sometimes I just want to go to Twitter and just go after people. But then I just think twice: If someone is dissing me, I’m going to make this person way more famous by tweeting them.”

On rumors in the media:
    “I know who I am, and I’m very much in control. I don’t need to address every speculation. Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond? He didn’t need to respond because he’s Jay-Z. There’s so much nonsense that gets out there that’s not true. I would rather spend time really interacting with my fans. You just have to keep your head high and be positive.”

When asked about friends, Bieber reveals that he has only a handful of people in his inner circle:
    “I get good vibes from people all the time, and I probably could get along with them and be their friend, but now I just don’t trust anybody. Literally, my phone never rings. I only have, like, four people that I keep in contact with. I don’t need a bunch of friends to make me happy. I just need the people close to me that I love, that’s all.”

Well, as long as he poses for sexy photos and shows up to his concerts, we'll still love him! Check out more 10+ more pics in the gallery below!
