The cover for Canadian teen pop singer Justin Bieber’s forthcoming debut album My World was revealed on the artist’s website yesterday. Bieber rose to popularity on YouTube and subsequently signed a record contract with Island Records. The album is scheduled to be released on November 17.
I watched a few of Bieber’s videos and I have to say that I do not think the album does a good job of reflecting his personality. I imagine that a great deal of his success has to do with his pleasant, fun-loving attitude. The album cover photo makes him appear as if he has an attitude. The serious glare reminds me of River Phoenix. It is just a hunch, but I bet his teenage fans would have rather seen his smile on the cover.
