The team that dominated the 2010 American Music Awards reunites again, only this time it’s for the cover of a magazine: Justin Bieber, Usher and Antonio “LA” Reid, chairman and CEO of Island Def Jam Music Group, make the cover for the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
Justin collaborated for the shoot with photographer Jeff Lipsky on Monday, with a different hairstyle from the famous “BieberHair” (performed by Vanessa Price).
“We’re like a family coming together,” Usher says about his relationship with Justin and LA Reid, who signed Justin in October 2008. “That’s what makes a great career.”
“I don’t like to focus so much on the future,” Bieber told the magazine. “Right now I just want to love what I’m doing, and that’s making music and making people smile. I hope I get to do that for a long time to come.”
In addition to being a pop sensation, Justin is now set to hit the big screen. A 3D portrait, presenting the 16-year-old’s rise to fame is sure to attract a lot of teenage audience in theaters, and not only. The film (“Never Say Never”) also features Usher and LA Reid as the teen’s mentors who were able to see the potential in him.
The latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter will be on newsstands in LA and NYC on Thursday.
