Justin Bieber Covers V Magazine – What Happened Here?

We do not report very often about Justin Bieber, actually not at all. But the fact that he has made the cover of the latest V Magazine we had to mention. Less because of the fact that he is on the cover, but of how the story is produced and presented. The spread is shot by Inez & Vinoodh and styled by none other than Nicola Formichetti.

The cover story is boldly called ‘Pop’s Crown Prince Turns 18!’. The guy is hardly 18 and you can already see the new direction his PR/Marketing team is taking things, building up the next Kanye. Formichetti is known for his styling, mainly for Lady Gaga, and her covers have more than once turned a lot of heads. Now seeing Bieber styled in Versace and Mugler, seems somewhat fake and unnatural. And what is going on with that net shirt on the cover? What do you think?

Check out the spread after the jump.
