Fashion Photographer Tony Kelly Shot The Biebs for a New Complex Mag Spread

No, Justin Bieber, not the face! But alas, it is the sweet face of the 18-year-old pop star that's most battered and bloodied in a new Complex magazine photo spread in which The Biebs acts out his boxing fantasies.

Sporting a white shirt and bow tie -- looking more like a boxing match referee than a fighter -- Bieber is seen getting punched in the face by a muscular arm, which leaves him with a bloodied shirt, a face full of cuts and spitting out a mouth full of blood.

In other shots, Bieber is seen tearing off his shirt as he's held back by a girl in a bikini and donning a tuxedo jacket as he punches a speed ball.

The accompanying Complex magazine interview with Bieber also finds him discussing girlfriend Selena Gomez and why the two aren't more secretive about their relationship.

"There's no way to hide the relationship completely, because then it would be unfair to us," Bieber says. "It's like, 'You take this car, and I'll take this car, and then we'll meet up at the spot. Then, you go in this door, I'll go in this door. We'll end up crossing ways. You get back in this car. We'll cross over, do a James Bond. You go through the kitchen. I'll go through the back area. Then we'll meet in the dressing room and see each other.'

"At that point, it's not even a relationship. You're just hiding from everyone. That's unfair and unhealthy, man."

Bieber's newest song, "Boyfriend" -- from his upcoming album Believe -- will be released on March 26, and he'll appear at the Kids' Choice Awards on Nickelodeon on March 31.
