Justin Bieber is all bloodied up on the cover of Complex magazine.
Bieber turned 18 on March 1 and he’s been working hard the past few months in the studio, recording his new album “Believe.” The pictures were courtesy of a Complex magazine shoot. Justin Bieber was the chosen cover story where they talked about Justin’s transition to manhood. Although not legally able to drink yet, he is changing his music quite a bit. Perhaps to let the world know that he is growing up.
He emerged in the spotlight three years ago, but has been kept grounded by the people around him. Scoot Braun, his manager, told Complex, “[Bieber] doesn’t like being famous. He struggles with not being normal. I’m constantly telling him, ‘You’re not normal, and since you’re having an extraordinary life, I’m holding to you extraordinary standards.'”
Braun recalled a conversation with Beiber about drugs: “He called me and said ‘Do you know why I’m never going to do that stuff? Because I know you’d walk in and beat the shit out of me.'”
