This cover for Love magazine creeps me out.
It’s one thing for tweens to fawn over Justin Bieber. He’s 16. That’s appropriate. And this month’s Vanity Fair cover called Bieber “adorable” — which, in the eyes of grown-ups, is exactly what he should be.
But for an adult magazine to put him on the cover with the caption “The Beautiful One” — all dewy and close-up — well, it’s fucking creepy.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that this has such a skin-crawling undertone, since it was shot by Terry Richardson. And everything he touches, apparently, turns to skeeve.
