“I’ve done some things that might not have been the greatest decisions at the time.”

With April’s Men’s Health cover story, Justin Bieber lays it all on the line—he’s made his mistakes, he’s trying to find himself, and he hopes to become a man all his ‘Beliebers’ can be proud of. But first, let’s take a look at those bad decisions he mentioned…

  • Caught on camera attacking a paparazzo in London
  • Caught on camera sneaking out of a Brazilian brothel wearing just a sheet
  • Egged his next door neighbor’s house, prompting a police raid in which marijuana and other drugs were found
  • Earned his fair share of Twitter mockery for getting carried up the Great Wall of China by his bodyguards (minions?)
  • Wrote this in the guest book at the Anne Frank house, “Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”
  • Adopted a monkey he couldn’t care for and abandoned it in Munich
  • Arrested in Miami for drag racing a Lamborghini under the influence
  • Assaulted a limo driver in Toronto a week later
  • Announced his “retirement” on Twitter
  • Officially became one of the world’s most-hated individuals, as a WhiteHouse.gov petition to deport him to Canada earned 262,817 signatures (more than double the amount required to earn a White House response)

So, has the newly 21-year-old Bieber really cleaned up? Neither SNL (who can forget the Calvin Klein parody?) nor the celebrities at his Comedy Central roast seem to “beliebe” it.

Read Men’s Health to decide for yourself. Oh—and to experience gems like, “Yeah, you know I’m just getting bigger, man. It’s like, my shoulders don’t fit in some things” and “I want to always remain…to have that sense of purity inside of me where I don’t…I don’t want to lose that sense of purity.”
