We've been closely tracking Justin Bieber's courting of the fashion industry, from his sexed-up Calvin Klein campaign to his appearance with Balmain's Olivier Rousteing at the Met Gala. While this new career trajectory has earned him editorials in Vogue, V and more, his latest shoot — in the August issue of Interview magazine — might be his most directional (and terrifying) yet.
Shot by Steven Klein — who recently debuted his upcoming Nars collection with an eerie party in a mansion upstate — the 21-year-old singer appears nearly nude, wielding a knife, wearing a seriously creepy clown mask and, not shockingly, his Calvins. In the grand tradition of Interview, the accompanying Q&A was conducted by another celebrity: none other than Martha Stewart. The 73-year-old is no stranger to controversy herself, and last year, she got tongues wagging when she appeared in Porter magazine, shot by Terry Richardson, and couldn't help but make mention of how "cute" he was.
Head on over to Interview for the full story and photo shoot — if you dare.
