Justin Bieber returns to the cover of Rolling Stone this week.
The sometimes-Atlantan shows off his sleeker, more mature look in the new issue, on shelves Friday. It’s the second time he’s graced the front of the magazine in his young career.
Rolling Stone provided a sneak peek of the story, which follows Bieber into the studio and watches him deal with paparazzi at a golf course (he hits a golf ball at them).
The 18-year-old heartthrob starts a tour in September, with a sold-out Atlanta date at Philips Arena in January. The guys in British band The Wanted have hinted they’re going to tour with Bieber, now that they share Scooter Braun as a manager.
