“Hot, Ready, Legal”
Once billed as a an act your mother could love, Justin Bieber continues his calculated transition into somewhat of a sex symbol on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s latest issue.
It’s a contrived narrative that’s been played out many a time before. Yet, it’s a narrative we can’t blame Team Bieber for employing – given the difficulties many child stars face when they pander to Disney-esque audience for longer than they “should”.
At 18, Bieber is a mini-industry – with many hinging their annual pay-cheque’s on his success. Hence, ensuring that success continues means more covers like this, more crotch grabs during performances, and more use of apparently “cool” words such as “swaggie”.
Bieber’s latest album ‘Believe’ is in stores now.
