First, Selena Gomez shed her good girl image for her racy new flick ‘Spring Breakers’ and now her fella Justin Bieber has followed suit!

Unleashing his inner tough guy, the pop idol has risked his famous ‘Baby’ faced looks for a fierce round in the boxing ring!

Taking a mighty (albeit fake) beating for the sake of a dramatic new photo-shoot for Complex magazine , the singer’s been snapped looking bloody and bruised after acting out a nasty fight scene.

But while his burly opponent may have pulled all the punches in the ring – when it comes to the charts, Biebs is determined to beat out any competition.

“There’s no point in doing this if I’m not going to be the best,” he told Complex Magazine.

“I give up a personal life. I give up my friends and family to pursue what I love and to make my fans happy. Why would I give up so much to be just another singer?”

And talking of his personal life, the 18-year-old says he’s given up ever trying to “hide” his romantic date nights with girlfriend Selena.

“There’s no way to hide the relationship completely,”he added. “Because then it would be unfair to us.”

But while he may have accepted life in the spotlight – it doesn’t mean he always enjoys it…

“He doesn’t like being famous,” his manager Scooter Braun told Complex.

“He struggles with not being normal. I’m constantly telling him, ‘You’re not normal, and since you’re living an extraordinary life, I’m holding you to extraordinary standards.’”
