Meanwhile, Bieber’s acting skills were stretched in two episodes of CSI’s 11th season where he played a young serial killer named Jason, who met his demise at the hands of police officers, the very people he was targeting with bombs in a plot for revenge.

The “Baby” crooner opened up about his desire to try acting during a January 2015 interview for V magazine.

“I’m still young. I still have so many personal and professional goals I want to achieve. I want to keep creating music for my fans,” Bieber told fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld at the time. “One day I hope to make strides into movies and fashion as well. I want to share my creativity with the world.”
