This ain’t your 8-year-old daughter’s Justin Bieber.
A shirtless, tattooed, dazed and slighly sweaty Canadian is pictured on the cover of the March 13, 2014 issue of Rolling Stone. And yes, it is JB. In the inked, chiseled flesh.
The cover photo is accompanied by the headline, “Bad Boy: Why Justin Bieber just won’t behave.”
Rolling Stone is already teasing the upcoming article by bullet-pointing such incidents and influences as his wild strip-club night in Miami, his bystander father, a “non-intervention” after he was sprung from a Miami jail and his worries about a lack of privacy.
The rock magazine’s web site also offers a timeline charting Bieber’s “wild decline.”
