The “Baby” hitmaker, Justin Bieber gets punched in the face for Complex magazine’s 10th-year anniversary issue. But don’t worry Beliebers, it’s all fake.
Photographed by Tony Kelly, every gals dream boy Justin Bieber appears bloodied for Complex’s shocking editorial spread. In the issue, Justin opens up about his relationship with actress and pop star Selena Gomez, childhood, tattoos and much more.
Check out some excerpts from his interview with mag:
On his relationship with Selena Gomez: “There’s no way to hide the relationship completely, because then it would be unfair to us. It’s like, ‘You take this car, and I’ll take this car, and then we’ll meet up at the spot. Then, you go in this door, I’ll go in this door. We’ll end up crossing ways. You get back in this car. We’ll cross over, do a James Bond. You go through the kitchen. I’ll go through the back area. Then we’ll meet in the dressing room and see each other.’ At that point, it’s not even a relationship. You’re just hiding from everyone. That’s unfair and unhealthy, man.”
On the paparazzi: “I’ll be covering my face and it pisses me off so much when people say, ‘Get over it, Justin. You’re famous. People are going to take your picture. Suck it up, you’re rich…’ It’s like, ‘Yo, I just got off an eight-hour flight. I’m tired and my eyes have bags under them. I’m not trying to take pictures. I’m not going to come to your house, wake you up, and start snapping your picture.’”
On his highly criticized photo shoot for V: “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.”
On his tattoo’s: “I want to get more tattoo’s when I’m older. My first tattoo was inspired by Richard Bach’s book ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’. My whole family got inked with the same design when I was 16. They all got it on their wrist, but I wanted it in a different spot. The book is about a seagull who wanted to be more than just a seagull. I’m trying to be more than just a regular person. I’m trying to be extravagant.”
On the people who dislike his music: “I feel like it’s my responsibility to be the greatest I can be. If I start making terrible music, I don’t expect people to like me. If I’m making great music and there’s no reason for people to dislike me, that’s when it’s going to make me upset. People just need to take a chance and listen. If they don’t want to take a chance, then I don’t know. That’s going to be the biggest problem, to make them feel like it’s cool for them to like my music.”
On rapping: “I just rap for fun,” he says. “It’s nothing to take seriously. On my new album, I’m going to do a little bit of rapping.”
