Iggy Pop Calls Justin Bieber 'Future of Rock 'n' Roll' After Being 'Tortured' in Amnesty Ad
"Torture a man and he will tell you anything" is a slogan of the new Amnesty International campaign over in Belgium, insisting that torture is not an effective mean of interrogation.

Among others, the campaign features rock icon Iggy Pop praising none-other that young Biebz. The photo of severely beaten-up Iggy has the following quote below it: "The future of rock 'n' roll, it's Justin Bieber."

The rest of the campaign also features Dalai Lama and fashion titan Karl Lagerfeld, both severely battered and making paradoxical claims, all in order to stress that torture shouldn't be applied. Check out the posters (with the lines translation) below.

Iggy Pop line: "The future of rock 'n' roll, it's Justin Bieber."
The Dalai Lama line: "A man who does not have a Rolex watch at 50 years old has failed in his life."
Karl Lagerfeld line: "The summit of elegance, this is the Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops."
