Justin Bieber, who will celebrate his 18th birthday next month, is all grown up, and is featured on the cover of V Magazine‘s first ever music issue.

Labeled as “Pop’s Crown Prince,” Justin strikes a pose in a mesh-knit black Dolce & Gabbana sweater on the cover, and inside the magazine is a spread photographed by Inez & Vnoodh and styled by Lady Gaga associate Nicola Formichetti.

“I want to be successful and be great and what I do,” Justin tells the high fashion magazine. “But eventually, I want to become the best at what I do. I want to be the best. In the world. I want to be better than anybody that’s ever done it. And in order to do that, I need to strive to be the best, be good to people and treat people with respect, and work as hard as I can.”

As for what he likes to do in his free time, JB said, “I just hang out with my friends, go to the movies. In L.A., I go to Jaden’s all the time.”
