Justin Bieber just turned 18 and he's already getting into fights. The pop star looks as if he's been put through the ringer on the cover of Complex magazine.

Bieber may not be a fighter, but he's a hard worker and has been spending the past few months in the studio, recording his new album "Believe." His fans, or "Beliebers" as they call themselves, are anxiously awaiting his new work and he revealed to Complex that he'll be doing a bit of rapping on some of the tracks. Offering up a taste of his sound, he raps a set of bars from his upcoming single "Boyfriend," due out later this month:

"Tell me what you like, dear/Tell me what you don’t/I could be your Buzz Lightyear/Fly across the globe/You don’t even need to fight, dear/You already know/I can make you shine bright/Like you’re laying in the snow/Burr."

The singer also opens up about his relationship with actress and pop star Selena Gomez, a romance which has been under a microscope ever since the two were first rumored to be dating.

"There is no way to hide the relationship completely, because then it would be unfair to us," he says. "It's like, 'You take this car and I'll take this car, and then we'll meet up at the spot ... I'll go through the back area. Then we'll meet in the dressing room and see each other.' At that point, it's not even a relationship. You're just hiding from everyone. That's unfair and unhealthy, man."

Bieber has grown up in the spotlight, bursting on to the scene as a fresh faced, parent-approved popstar, and for the most part that's the reputation he has today. It's easy to see how an 18-year-old millionaire could veer off track, but it's the company Bieber keeps that seems to keep him on the straight and narrow.

His manager, Scooter Braun, recalled a conversation he had with Bieber about drugs: "He called me and said 'Do you know why I'm never going to do that stuff? Because I know you'd walk in and beat the shit out of me.'"

And even with the $100,000 cars, the houses, the money and insanely dedicated fans, Braun tells Complex, "[Bieber] doesn't like being famous. He struggles with not being normal. I'm constantly telling him, 'You're not normal, and since you're having an extraordinary life, I'm holding to you extraordinary standards.'"
