Justin Bieber Is Crowned King Of ‘V’ Magazine (PHOTOS)

By: Erika Brooks Adickman / January 9, 2012

If Sky Ferreira’s pictorial tribute to Madonna wasn’t enough to entice you to pick up the V magazine’s 2012 Music Issue, perhaps Justin Bieber’s cover spread will. One would think this photo spread would bring Beliebers joy, but alas, it seems fans are none too pleased with photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s portrayal of the Canadian crooner — or maybe they’re just not too keen on his fashion forward Dolce & Gabbana sweater? Not since Beibs’ 2010 People magazine cover has there been such an negative Twitter outcry. As for JB, the freshly inked pop star shared with V, “Now that I’m on top, everyone wants to bring me down.”
