During a sit-down with Martha Stewart for the August issue of Interview magazine, Justin Bieber says he hit the books hard growing up.

When asked by Stewart if he dropped out of high school, the “Where Are Ü Now” singer revealed he graduated in 2012 with a perfect grade point average, telling Stewart: “I finished high school with a 4.0 GPA.”

Bieber, 21, also opened up to the lifestyle maven – who, of course, took part in the singer’s Comedy Central roast in March – about his upcoming record, which he promises will be “very personal.”

“The new album s going really well. I’m working a lot with Skrillex and Diplo and this guy named Poo Bear, who’s an incredible writer,” he told the glossy. “We’ve just been getting our groove. You kind of go through a period where you’re in there and nothing comes and nothing comes, and then, finally, it’s like bang-bang-bang – you get them all in a row. I’m at a place where I’m really happy and I’m ready to share my music.”

As for whether his off-again status with longtime girlfriend Selena Gomez has influenced his songwriting? Chances are, yes.

“It’s just very personal. People will be able to really get into where my heart is,” said Bieber, who’s been turning over a new leaf after apologizing for past bad behavior. “It’s about my journey in life – stuff that I’ve been through. Maybe I can teach a lesson, certain things that are inspiring.”

And the singer insists he’s currently flying solo, telling Stewart he’s got “no girlfriend at the moment … I’m single.”
