Justin Bieber, Rolling Stone Magazine

Rolling Stone Magazine

Justin Bieber's latest magazine cover doesn't exactly shed the best light on him.

A shirtless image of the 19-year-old pop star graces the new cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Bieber's image is accompanied by the headline, "Bad Boy: Why Justin Bieber Just Won't Behave."

In the story, which dissects the Biebs' "egg-throwing, hard-partying, drag-racing, arrest-resisting, brothel-patronizing, lightning-quick fall," the music mag breaks down its five big moments from the "Boyfriend" singer's fall from grace. Rolling Stone cites a 2010 concert in which he broke down in tears backstage as the first sign that the stress of fame was getting to him.

Fast forward to January 2014. Bieber enjoyed a hard-partying night out at Miami's King of Diamonds strip club just two days before he was arrested for DUI after drag racing.

After Bieber was released from jail, he and his entourage headed to Panama where his parental figures (mom Pattie Mallette, mentor Usher and manager Scooter Braun) tried to intervene. A source tells Rolling Stone the sorta intervention was "a conversation, reminding him of the people who care about him, and to consider things to do about it."

The mag also calls out Bieber's father, Jeremy Bieber, for encouraging his son's bad behavior (Jeremy accompanied his son to the strip club and was there when he got busted for DUI). "His father's not a great influence," a source dished. "They're almost not like father and son—it's more like two best friends."
