Interview Magazine had Justin Bieber pose alongside a knife, a clown mask, and some 50 Shades-esque accessories for the cover of its August issue. In the accompanying feature, Bieber gets real with Martha Stewart about the time she roasted him, saying that "it was all in good fun." He also opens up about a few-minute-long conversation he had with Anna Wintour at the Met Ball. And like anyone with a 4.0 GPA, Justin makes sure he mentions his 4.0 GPA. Catch a few of Justin and Martha's best exchanges from the interview below.
Stewart: And how did Scooter contact you?
Bieber: He kind of stalked me, basically.
Stewart: Did you drop out of school, Justin?
Bieber: No, I finished high school with a 4.0 GPA.
