Justin Bieber graces the cover of V magazine's inaugural music issue in all his pouting beauty. The actual issue doesn't hit newsstands until Jan. 12, however Lady Gaga's style director, Nicola Formichetti, has released this teaser image featuring only a section of Bieber's face in a black and white shot.
In the possible cover, Bieber sports a leather jacket with stud detailing over a hot black t-shirt, by Mugler of course. The tantalizing preview more then whets the appetites of readers, however, it currently lacks one of the singer's main attributes: his hair. We can only guess Formichetti did something strong and masculine for the shoot, matching the fierce look of the jacket.
Aside from Bieber, the rest of the layout is quit the burst of color and pulsating pixilation, with a large "V" framing the singer's face covered with painstakingly detailed collage work.
In related news, and keeping with his V Magazine badassery, the 17-year-old has gotten yet another tattoo. Going along with the theme of the Hebrew script of Jesus' name on his rib cage, the singer got a portrait of Jesus Christ's face on his left calf. "I believe that Jesus died on a cross for my sins," Bieber told Billboard in November. "He's the reason that I'm here." A bit shocking and provocative, his new tat will surely get more eyes focused on him.
