Justin Bieber is 'hot ready legal' on 'Rolling Stone' cover

justin-bieber-rolling-stone.jpg Justin Bieber is all grown up -- at least that's what Rolling Stone is saying in its cover story on the 18-year-old singer. The magazine, which hits newsstands on July 20, describes the Biebs as "hot ready legal" on its cover.

"I feel like I carry myself in a more manly way," he says in the profile. "I don't carry myself as a boy."

While we can't read the whole story until the magazine comes out, RollingStone.com teases two highlights from the article. First, Biebs encounters paparazzi while golfing at a private country club. "We'll probably never play here again," he tells the staff.

Second, manager Scooter Braun talks about Bieber's relationship with fellow teen star Selena Gomez. "Yes, there's gonna be some girls that if they see him with a girlfriend, it kills the dream - but there's also gonna be girls that see him with a girlfriend, hear about the romantic things he does and want him even more," Braun says.

Do you believe that Bieber is more mature, or do you think the story is a very strategically planned PR move?
