“Usher is who I look to for guidance. From the beginning, he told me to put family first and you’ll always succeed, because your family will never leave you. He told me to always stay humble and never forget where I came from.”
Growing Up With His Fans:
“A lot of times, when artists grow older, they lose their younger fans because they’re just trying to get older fans. But if you try to make good music, then you’ll just appease everybody. I just want to make music that’s good for everybody.”
On His Romantic Dates With Girlfriend Selena Gomez:
“I’m just trying to make her happy, that’s all. I think it’s important to make all women feel like they’re princesses, because every girl is a princess. I’m serious.”
Waste Not, Want Not:
“Recently, there were so many things in my rider that went to waste, so I took a lot of things off my rider. Every day we were buying all this stuff and it was just sitting there. I got rid of it, I didn’t want to waste all the food.”
He is the diminutive teenage pop star, known for his baby face and innocent lyrics that have made him a household name.
But in a new photo shoot, Justin Bieber will no doubt shock fans with his bloodied, beaten up and tough guy appearance.
The 18-year-old Baby singer is seen drenched in blood as he’s punch in the face by a burly boxer.
The image is just once of many incredible shots taken by world-renowned fashion photographer Tony Kelly for a stunning new photo shoot for Complex magazine.
Dressed in a ring master style outfit consisting of a white tuxedo shirt and black bow tie, Bieber is depicted as being hit hard in the jaw and subsequently spits out a mouthful of blood.
His shirt ripped and his face heavily bruised and bloodied, The Biebs is held back by a bikini-clad ring girl as he readies himself to fight back.
With injuries that would rival the most fiercest of boxers, a crazed-looking Bieber looks ready to rumble.
In another shot he slips on a black tuxedo jacket and also goes a few rounds with a speed ball.
The astonishing images were taken by Tony Kelly, a Dublin born photographer who has shot high fashion spreads for the likes of British GQ, Tatler and Vanity Fair.
After previously covering conflict in war torn countries, including Rwanda and Afghanistan, Kelly has become one of the most sought after snappers in the fashion industry, working in the field for eight years.
“10 Years. Over the last decade Complex has charted its own course, getting in where other magazines couldn’t fit in by feeding the diverse interests of the multicultural man. To celebrate the long journey, we’ve compiled the best of our past, present, and future in Complex’s 10th Anniversary Issue (which officially hits stands on April 3).
For the first two covers from our knock-out special edition, we collaborated with the young king Justin Bieber. That’s right, the world’s biggest pop star is 18 now, and he’s through being your punching bag. After shooting some bloody amazing images with photographer Tony Kelly, Bieber invited Complex editor Joe La Puma to follow him on a globe-hopping trip—all the way from France to Miami—to give a glimpse into the life of a superstar. Read the full cover story now and check back over the coming weeks for more 10th anniversary content…”
Congratulations Complex Magazine For Reaching Your 10 Year Anniversary.
A Very Special Year
