Justin Bieber 's been beaten to a bloody pulp! Blood is strewn down his shirt and pouring from his nose in latest pictures taken off the starlet, whilst several deep bruises on his cheeks and a swelling around his eyes indicate that the 18 year-old's been at the wrong end of a severe hiding. However, fear not Beliebers / sorry to disappoint you Bieber haters, the snaps were merely for the magazine Complex of which the singer appears on the front cover of their forthcoming issue.
The pictures are an aim to show Bieber as an older, more mature character, ready to embrace an adult as well as adolescent audience. Will it work? Who knows, but it's something clearly on the teenager's mind as he commented to the magazine "People just need to take a chance and listen," of his new album 'Believe.'
