This shoot is one that has been making the rounds for a couple of days now, by Irish photography Tony Kelly (check out his Facebook page here) for Complex magazine, but warrants inclusion here because of (a) its tenuous links to fashion and (b) my unwavering love of Justin Beiber.

There’s something almost Sin City-esque about the graphic violence depicted in these photographs, and while I’m never one to glorify or attempt to make violence fashionable, I’ll have to admit to feeling a thrill at seeing images of Bieber so far removed from his usual squeaky-clean image – and so much more original than that sickly sweet Vanity Fair shoot. What do you think of this new edge? And of his new song?
