Playing Justin Bieber Gushes Over Hailey Baldwin: She's 'Someone I Really Love'

Justin Bieber opened up about his relationship with Hailey Baldwin, and while he didn't confirm they were an item, he did admit to having feelings for the model.

Over the December holidays, Bieber took Stephen Baldwin's daughter along for his family vacation and nearly broke the Internet when he shared a photo of him passionately kissing the 19 year old. In a new interview with GQ magazine, the 21-year-old singer describes Baldwin as "someone I really love."

"We spend a lot of time together," he adds.

Bieber has been diligent in shedding his bad-boy persona, but says in retrospect, he doesn't have many regrets about that time in his life. "Everyone when they start growing up realizes, 'Man, I did some dumb sh** when I was younger,'" he says. "It's not just me. ...If I could go back I wouldn't really change much. I think it's all my journey. That stuff made me who I am."

He also clarified that his hit single "Sorry" isn't a personal apology for his behavior in years past. "People ran with that -- that I was like, apologizing with that song and stuff," he explains. "It really had nothing to do with that. ...It was about a girl."

The release of Bieber's album,Purpose, marked something of a comeback for the singer after he had been plagued with heartbreak (Selena Gomez) and scandal. "I'm stubborn and I've always been really stubborn," he told ET prior to the album's release. "I think if I would have just known I could have been myself, but I don't think I knew my self-worth enough. I think that comes in time."
