Justin Bieber's Vanity Fair cover was only the beginning. The teenage pop phenomenon has affirmatively infiltrated the fashion magazine world, snagging the alternative cover to Kate Moss and Lea T's version of Love's androgynous issue. Terry Richardson shot the 16 year-old, whose gender seems to have saved him from the photographer's sexually-hyped signature. Here are some burning questions I had when I came across the cover:
