Focusing on his inner fighter, Justin Bieber took some hard punches in the boxing ring for the cover of the Tenth Anniversary Special for Complex Magazine.
The international superstar channels Tyler Durden for the shoot, as he is covered in [fake] blood, had wrapped hands, and was clad in a ripped button-up and bow tie with images of a fist coming at his angelic face.
The Biebs recently celebrated his 18th birthday on March 1st and seems to want the brand he has created to be a bit manlier as well.
He has already caused insane frenzy with teen girls all over the world and has a never-ending fan base that continues to grow, and now with the potential of being the BIGGEST pop star yet, JB really must deliver in his new album titled Believe and isn’t accepting anything less than the best.
“I give up a personal life, I give up friends and family to pursue what I love and make fans happy,” Bieber told Joe La Puma, Complex reporter. “There##Q##s no point in doing this if I##Q##m not going to be the best.”
It’s been a minute since his last studio album, but Bieber didn’t want to rush his new project. The list of A-list collaborators for the highly anticipated album is quite impressive, including Lil Wayne and Drake.
His single “Boyfriend” drops in one week on March 26th, and Believe is expected to release this spring. You know I’ll be grabbing the issue that hits newsstands April 3rd!
