Of all the celebrities they could’ve picked for their January 2011 cover, Vanity Fair chose Justin Bieber. Just another indicator about how his star has become a super nova. Between Bieber’s sexy photos with Selena Gomez and this cover, the boy’s sure not hiding his game. OMG! Teenage hormone upsurge!
The cheeky cover has the fresh-faced teen with lipstick marks trailing down his cheek right down to his shirt (is that Selena’s shade of lippie?), and it’s heaps better than Bieber’s Toda Teen Star fiasco. The VF article has some insight into the Biebs brain, more importantly about what he thinks about himself. The Biebs reveals that he’s, “… crazy, I’m nuts. Just the way my brain works. I’m not normal. I think differently—my mind is always racing. I’m just…nuts. But I think the best [musicians] probably are.”
See more great quotes from the Bieb after the jump.
• “It’s hard to really balance myself. A regular kid, if he catches the flu, he just gets to go home. But I can’t do that…. Everything is important. But, you know, my sanity is important, too. Even if I’m angry, I’ll just put a smile on my face and fake it…”
• “I feel like I’ve become an expert at covert operations.”
• “For younger guys, it’s like [they think] they’re not cool if they come to my concert. That’ll [change], I think; it’ll happen, maybe when I’m 18. But meanwhile all their girlfriends are coming to watch me.”
Cutest of all is when Justin’s grandfather, Bruce Dale, is questioned about whether he ever thought his grandson would become such a super star. His response? “No. Never. He was supposed to be a hockey player.”
