Believe it or not, there are simply some people who do not like Justin Bieber. Complex plays with this notion by slapping (literally!) JB on two covers for its 10th anniversary issue. Actually, forget slapping — it looks more like they mauled the poor guy. Photographer Tony Keller shot the bloody pics, which you can flip through in the gallery. Then jump below to catch some quotes and watch a behind-the-scenes video from the the “Boyfriend” singer’s cover shoot.
Speaking of “Boyfriend”, Justin revealed these lyrics from his rap on the lead Believe single: “Tell me what you like, dear / Tell me what you don’t / I could be your Buzz Lightyear / Fly across the globe / You don’t even need to fight, dear / You already know / I can make you shine bright / Like you’re laying in the snow / Burr.” Utter poetry, readers.
And regarding his recent V magazine cover story — which some argued had photos of Bieber looking quite feminine — Justin had this to say to Complex: “Every guy has feminine qualities. You’re raised by your mother and father, and I was raised mostly by my mother. I think the pictures turned out good—so whatever.”
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at JB’s knock-down, drag-out (and, rest assured, quite manly) Complex cover shoot, which took place at the LA Sands Boxing Club:
What do you think of Justin’s Complex pics — a total knockout or bloody awful?
