Personally, I would wait with his cover for the Spoiled brats whose life achievement is singing 'Baby Oh' issue, but well. I suppose psycho-fans are already mad about it.

Good for Bieber, strike while the iron is hot!

And I think they've given the two types of readers of the magazine, two very different options. For the die hard fashionistas there is a great image of Moss and Lea, for the people who maybe have never picked up an issue of LOVE before, there is a cute Bieber picture to draw them in.

I know that on tFS were all used to these magazines, but there are so many people who have no idea what LOVE is, or the kind of content that will be in it. If one Bieber fan picks up this issue and gets really interested in fashion then I think it is worth it.

Maybe I'm just super optimistic today though!

Bieber cover is so disappointing. I was hoping they'd do him up in drag or something. This is LOVE and Terry Richardson we're talking about.

"The Beautiful One". WTF? Katie really wants those sales, doesn't she?

I wonder if the inside content will be "appropriate" (no nudity, for one) for young Bieber fans. How many fans could be getting in trouble from their parents or school for their naughty magazine?

I can see the androgyny with Kate and Lea. But as the poll asks, a blatant play for media attention. And then we get the Justin Bieber cover, which leaves me baffled. Yet another play for media attention. I dislike how the covers aren't coherent, like Issue #3. Although after all that, I am looking forward to the content. Apparently it's their biggest issue, so hopefully there's some decent content to the thickness.

Oh my God....

what are the Justin Bieber's fans parents gonna think/react when they see the Lea T/Kate Moss cover. I mean do they really think it's gonna sell?... well maybe for the fashion fans but no for the Bieber fans.

PS: That "Lesbian" kiss seems so calculated! and the Bieber cover is just... I don't know, boring? or extremely simple perhaps?

I know why they make Bieber's cover like that, so the girls could directly kiss his face.

Well, I think that was their point though. It is the androgyny issue.
