The whole project went down for Interview magazine, where Bieber sat down and got personal with Martha Stewart. Not only did he tell her about his upcoming music, love life, and graduating high school with a 4.0, he also posed for some shirtless pics...with a knife. Da hell?
The creepy photos were taken by Steven Klein. In them, Justin's seen sans shirt (like always) and untouched. Yep, Steve wanted to keep that ish real.
"Before I shoot someone, I do extensive research," the photog told ET. "I was drawn to more of Bieber's snapshots and paparazzi pictures, so my approach was to do more of a private shoot, which I call a private collection."
Hey, at least there aren't any a** shots...
But it was Justin's idea to pose nude. "We had probably 20 racks of clothes, and he actually looked at an overview of the clothes and he didn't even really want to shoot the fashion," Steven added. "Everything was more like flesh and black and simple."
That didn't stop Justin from posing in a terrifying clown mask, though. Wait, is that a knife we see too? You bet. Check out Justin's pictures below, and read the interview that goes with the shoot, here.
