Below, read some of our favorite excerpts from the unlikely duo's conversation.
Martha Stewart: What's your favorite mode of transportation, Justin?
Justin Bieber: Probably private jet. That's the quickest and most comfortable.
MS: Do you have a jet?
JB: I don't own a jet, but I rent jets in my spare time.
MS: Do you know how to fly?
JB: I've flown before, yeah. When I was going to Coachella, actually, I took a plane out.
MS: It's fun, right?
JB: It was pretty scary, but it was fun.
MS: What about cars? I thought you were a big car guy.
JB: I do love cars. I've got a Ferrari.
MS: What color?
JB: It's red. And then I have an Audi R8, which is matte black. I have a Range Rover. I have a Mercedes-Maybach.
MS: You have a Maybach? My dream car. Do you sit in the front seat or the backseat?
JB: I ride in the back.
MS: Isn't it fabulous?
JB: It's so nice. It's the smoothest ride I've ever been in.
MS: What do you invest in?
JB: A lot of tech investments.
MS: Like Facebook?
JB: A lot of different tech investments, but not a lot I can speak on because we want to kind of keep that private.
MS: What interests you in the tech world?
JB: Just the fact that there's such a big return. We've got someone who's very smart in that world who helps us figure out what's going to blow up and ... I don't know, I just like tech.
MS: Do you use social media yourself?
JB: I do, yeah.
MS: What's your favorite mode of communicating?
JB: Actually, I helped start an app called Shots. It's a selfie app, and basically it's an anti-bullying app. You can post pictures and there's no comments or dislikes; you can just like the photo and follow your friends. A bunch of celebrities are on there, and it's a really safe platform. It's one of the fastest-growing apps right now. I've been on Twitter since the beginning, and on Instagram. I actually just started a Snapchat, so I've been kind of addicted to that recently.
MS: That's doing amazingly well.
JB: I wish I was involved with that one in the beginning.
MS: Are you going anywhere this summer that's exciting?
JB: I think I'm going to go to Ibiza.
MS: Oh, great! Do you have a boat?
JB: Yeah, I got a boat. And I'll go down there for about a week and just get some inspiration.
MS: It's beautiful. What do you eat?
JB: I love grilled salmon, mashed potatoes.
MS: Simple food.
JB: I've been really eating healthy lately, so grilled salmon and a lot of steak and chicken breasts and stuff.
MS: And what do you drink?
JB: 1942 tequila.
MS: Aha, you're a tequila boy. That's good. Have you tried any of the really fancy sipping tequilas?
JB: I haven't. I haven't been introduced to that stuff yet.
MS: Do you ever get in the kitchen?
JB: I cook breakfast, and that's pretty much it.
