Older and wiser. It seems that Justin Bieber is actually thinking like a mature adult.
The singer was the epitome of a nuisance as he progressed through super stardom with several run-ins with the law and disgusting behavior (Peeing in a restaurant's mop bucket anyone?). But, those days are behind him.
"I'm growing, figuring some stuff out, as you do when you grow up," the "Baby" singer told USA Today. "You figure out what type of man you want to be, that's where I'm at."
Biebs has been attempting to reinvent himself for several months now, having acknowledged publicly that he was "arrogant" for a while. He also weeded out a few friends, he said, that weren't positive influences.
"I left a lot of people behind who weren't on the same journey I was on, and I've got a lot of new people in my life who are pouring into me, and not taking away from me," Bieber said.

One of those people usually by Justin's side for years was off-and-on girlfriend Selena Gomez. The former couple, however, hasn't been together since splitting toward the end of 2014.
"At this point in my life I'm so focused on myself that I'm not looking for a girlfriend," he said. "I'm just trying to make sure I'm 100 percent so I can add to the person I want to be with. I want a girl I can trust, who I can lean on. This business is hard, and I want someone I can confide in."
With honest conversations like this, he may just turn us all into "beliebers."
