Justin Bieber Talks Working Relationship with Kanye West, Jesus Christ

Justin Bieber Talks Working Relationship with Kanye West, Jesus Christ
It just might be the year of redemption for Justin Bieber, as the Ontario-bred pop superstar has stopped getting arrested and started releasing bangers again. In fact, the artist is currently holed up in the studio with Rick Rubin and Kanye West.

In a new cover story with Complex, Bieber explained how he can't wait for the world to hear his new music. "I'll hear songs on the radio, and I'm not really a fan of what's going on right now in music," he said. "I'll hear it and go, 'Ugh, why is this being played so much right now?' I have such great music that I want to share with the world."

He also explained how Kanye West stands out from other producers. "It's his creative input," Bieber said. "I'll play a song, and he'll be like, 'Man this reminds me of like... a blacklight sunset,' or something.  He'll try to paint these pictures for you."

"It's not the average way," the Biebs continued. "He doesn't just come in and say, 'This sounds good; this sounds bad.' He'll be like, 'This is this because the world needs this.' He comes from a whole different point of view."

Yeezus isn't the only one getting daps from the Biebs, however. He's also got a lot to say about Jesus. Speaking about his various run-ins with the law and paparazzi, Bieber opened up about his own Christianity. Criticizing others for being "overly churchy," he said, "Like I said, you don't need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn't make you a taco." Hard to argue with that logic.

Other topics discussed include Bieber's relationship with Selena Gomez (he claims they were basically "married" at 18), his notorious bucket-peeing incident ("Dude, what is bratty about pissing in a bucket? I had to go piss—we all have to pee") and his DUI arrest ("I might have had a beer earlier in the day or something"). Read the full interview here.
