Vogue has tasked veteran photographer Mario Testino with documenting what the magazine insists is the new Brat Pack — Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Ansel Elgort, Gigi Hadid and Hopper and Dylan Penn, the son and daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright — in their natural habitat: lounging around a pool and pouting. And the group even gets a catchy new name that only makes them more insufferable: The Instagram Aristocracy. And if the photos of the kids aren't enough to make you want to climb yourself onto an ice floe, there are also some choice quotes displaying an impressive lack of self-awareness, like when Bieber says he's been "kind of on the low, just working on the new album" lately or how Jenner is "aware when I'm at the gym that I need to save some energy so I can do a 40-yard dash" to avoid the paparazzi.
One thing's for sure: Elgort seems a lot less obnoxious when next to Bieber, so good on him for using that proximity to his advantage. Oh, and Bieber also wants the world to know something else: "I'm actually an introvert." Which is about the funniest thing I've heard in a while.
