But it looks as though Justin Bieber could be looking to make a name for himself in the rock world. The diminutive pop star has shown off his rockier side in a new campaign with Adidas for their NEO spring/summer 2013 shoe collection. Hollywood hunk: Justin Bieber resembled a young James Dean as he modeled the Adidas NEO fall/winter collection Showing off his tattoos while clenching a guitar, Bieber looked as though he was ready to rock out on stage. Photographed in what looks to be a musically decorated living room, the Baby showed off his casual style, dressing in two trendy looks. Sporting a black motorcycle jacket, white tee, dark baggy jeans and a pair of BBNEO hi top sneakers, the Girlfriend singer expressed his love for music by holding a professional guitar while looking deep into the camera, almost resembling a young James Dean. Taking advantage of the space, Bieber gave a shy smirk while sitting in a retro-styled mustard chair and lounged in three different positions on a black leather couch.

The Wanted dump Justin Bieber from album because his song ‘didn’t fit’

Max George explained: “We did a song with Justin. I think it was a great song and he did an amazing job writing it, but I think it was very much more suited to his style.” Ouch. The band quickly tried to soothe those wounds by saying Justin was “too humble” to ever give them advice on handling their new-found fame. “He’s not someone who really gives advice like that because I think he just appreciates what’s happened to him rather than thinks he’s, y’know, God,” continued Max. “We talk about football, or basketball. Or, you know, normal stuff.” The boys also discussed why their album has been pushed back (and back and back), and apparently it’s nothing to do with Justin Bieber repeatedly calling their house late at night and hanging up until they suffered too much sleep deprivation to drag themselves into a recording studio, and everything to do with them having musical integrity. “I think that we weren’t ready a year ago. It just wasn’t ready; the songs weren’t finished,” said Siva Kaneswaran. “We want to put out the best of us and we are ready now and every song is so personal and we’ve all aged as writers, and it’s very mature … and it’s the best album yet.” Word of Mouth is due out on November 4th. Can’t wait that long? Occupy your time by looking at these alternative uses of Justin Bieber’s very thin ‘tache.

Justin Bieber: From tween sensation to adult icon

As The New York Times pointed out after the “Girlfriend” singer’s 18th birthday last year, “Mr. Bieber can be his own man, sure, so long as he continues to belong to everyone else too.” Despite rejecting comparisons to Justin Timberlake , Bieber would be lucky to moonwalk into adulthood the way the “Suit & Tie” singer has. Of course, Timberlake had the support of his boy band ‘N Sync behind him when he made the leap. It also helped that there were other male stars around, like the Backstreet Boys, helping to dim the harsh limelight. Bieber doesn’t exactly have a counterpart today. While “Twilight” stars Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, or “Hunger Games” stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, have distracted the media — and countless tween fans — Bieber remains in a league of his own. Miley Cyrus can likely relate. Every step of her own maturation — from the time she danced with a pole at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards , to her drastic haircut in 2012 — has made headlines. The “Can’t Be Tamed” singer and “Last Song” actress issued a public apology after a video surfaced of her smoking salvia (an herb sold legally in many health food stores) in 2010. “But do you really think it was a mistake?” Marie Claire’s Kimberly Cutter asked Cyrus in a 2011 interview. “Obviously college kids your age all over America are smoking bongs with a lot more than salvia in them.” “But they’re not Miley Cyrus,” she said. “They’re not role models. So for me it was a bad decision, because of my fans and because of what I stand for.” Cyrus is getting older, but she’s not in and out of court ( no offense, Lindsay ), or getting into car wreck after car wreck ( no offense, Amanda ), so isn’t the “good girl gone bad” label pushing it?
