The Canadian teen heartthrob is featured in a stylish and swoon-worthy photo shoot and personal interview in the June issue of GQ that is sure to make Beliebers excited with glee.

In the photos posted on its website, the magazine gives a glimpse of Justin looking suave as he wears a grey tailored blazer and white jeans, his signature haircut slicked back in a masculine bouffant. In addition to the stylish pics, Justin gets personal in an interview about his stardom and how he keeps control of his life.

"For me, it's just like, I like to be in control of myself. I mean, I've had a beer, like, before... But I never get out of control," says Justin to GQ. "I mean, I keep my guard up a lot, because, you know, you can't trust anyone in this business," Bieber says. "That's what's sad. You can't trust anybody. I learned the hard way."

Oh Justin, we never knew how hard it was to be you, but you definitely have had your share of drama in your 18-year-old life. I mean, can anyone say "paternity drama"?

In addition to the candid interview, which depicts the Biebs as outgoing and brutally honest, he also defends reality queen Kim Kardashian after one of his business advisors makes a not-so-nice comment about her.

"People say she doesn't do anything; she actually does do stuff," says Justin. "She works hard."

Aww, how sweet of Justin to stick up for Kim. Even if people are probably questioning why he did, it's still sweet.
