Justin Bieber getting brutally beaten up is something his young fans would find extremely painful to watch, at the same providing his haters with some quality popcorn entertainment. But that's exactly what pop music's favorite whipping boy did for Complex magazine's 10th anniversary issue photoshoot. The 18-year-old popstar is featured on the issue's cover, and in the lead story he talks about the tribulations of growing up in the limelight.

While the singer has taken a lot of punches in the form of criticism, it's not like Bieber doesn't know a thing or two about fighting back. His father is a former MMA fighter, and Bieber admits he's a big fan of boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr., so the kid knows a thing or two about jabs. But let's be honest, you only clicked 'Read More' because you wanted to see Bieber get punched in the face. Repeatedly.

Watch the behind-the-scenes video from the photoshoot, where Bieber not only takes a few punches from some boxers, but extracts revenge by fighting back.
