Just days after debuting his new Jesus tattoo, Justin Bieber is opening up about his views on God and religion in the new issue of V magazine. ”A lot of people who are religious, I think they get lost. They go to church just to go to church. I’m not trying to disrespect them, but for me, I focus more on praying and talking to him,” the cover boy explains in the issue, according to the Winnipeg Free Press. “I don’t have to go to church.”

The singer’s strong religious beliefs have always been a part of his public persona. At the 2011 VMAs, when Bieber accepted the Moonman for Best Male Video for “U Smile,” he thanked God. “I just want to say thank you so much, not only to God but to Jesus,” Bieber said. “Because I wouldn’t be here without Him. He’s really blessed me. He’s put me in this position. So I want to say thank you so much.”

The issue hits newsstands on Thursday. Bieber’s look was styled by Lady Gaga’s stylist and Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti. The photos were shot by other Gaga associates, fashion photographers Inez and Vinoodh.

In the issue, the singer also talked about his rise to fame, noting that now that he’s reached superstardom, haters and critics have been focused on bringing him down. “Now that I’m on top, everyone wants to bring me down. Everyone’s trying to tug at me and take my spot,” he said. “Like Floyd Mayweather, he’s the best boxer in the world. Now he is a champion. Every time he goes to a fight now, people are like, ‘He’s going to lose this time.’ ”

As 2012 presses on, Bieber is poised to have another big year, regardless of what the non-Beliebers say. He’s currently recording his next album, Believe, set for release later this year.
