Justin Bieber has been featured on the cover of Rolling Stone three times in the past three years. And how far he has come in that short amount of time.

First, in 2011, profiled by Vanessa Grigoriadis and photographed by Terry Richardson, Bieber was labeled a "Super Boy." This is the interview where he said he wasn't into abortion.

The most recent article apparently covers Bieber's recent issues with the law: "Contributing editor Claire Hoffman gets the dirt on the 19-year-old's most recent troubles, uncovering events that would make the singer's core Beliebers lose their faith." Look out world. There's a bad boy in our midst.
