Superstar Status: Justin Bieber Covers Complex Magazine
International teenage sensation Justin Bieber is gracing the cover of the 10th Anniversary of Complex magazine’s decade in print issue. On the cover, JB appears to be bruised and bloodied. Inside the issue, he talks about his pop stardom, his new album Believe, single “Boyfriend” which drops next week, love life, and much more. Below are some excerpts:
On his relationship:
“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 his 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.” He proceeds to spit a set of bars from “Boyfriend,” a song recorded for Believe. “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.”
Complex’s 10th Anniversary Issue hits stands on April 3.
