Justin Bieber's upcoming movie Believe comes in the midst of the singer's transition into adulthood. To promote the movie, Bieber and manager Scooter Braun cover the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter with the following tagline: JUSTIN BIEBER IS NOT SORRY.
The feature interview naturally focuses on the world of controversy Bieber has lived in for the last several months, as his maturity has been called into question for numerous juvenile transgressions.
In the interview, Bieber and Braun offer apologies or explanations to dismiss most of the accusations and rumors. They also cite a potential support system for Bieber should he ask for mentorship or assistance. According to Braun:
- Will Smith has a weekly phone call with Bieber to discuss problems.
- Drake "is like a big brother" for the singer.
- Oprah, Adam Levine, and Mark Wahlberg have reached out personally to Braun.
- Tom Hanks' wife, Rita Wilson, has offered to have him speak to Bieber.
- Paul Rosenberg has told Braun that Eminem would be willing to talk to Bieber and that he "cares about the kid."
Ultimately, Braun believes that it's up to Bieber to grow up and that he should make decisions for himself, good or bad. That said, both Bieber and Braun are cognizant of the pitfalls that stand in the singer's way as he embarks on the next chapter of his career. The interview briefly discusses Bieber's current Music Monday series, and also his breakup with Selena Gomez.
Also, for those wondering Em's daughter Hailie Mathers is a Belieber, which definitely makes sense.
