Well, it looks like Justin Bieber is being ushered into celebrity adulthood in the traditional way, with possibly-fake stolen Internet nudes of him appearing on the Internet. The Beibs definitely had his laptop stolen recently, and wrote some cryptic tweets about losing “personal footage” around the same time pictures of a headless torso-and-dong with a tattoo similar to Beiber’s started circulating on the Internet. Via The Daily Mocha:
The photo that leaked shows a male with a small bird tattoo on his hip, very similar to the Biebs, however his face is cropped—which leaves us to wonder… is this legit? It’s still unclear as to whether or not the bird is photoshopped, so we’ll see how this goes. The picture has been removed from the internet, (as far as we know). We did manage to find a tiny version of it, so we’ll let you be the judge.
You can imagine that the Biebs is not too thrilled about this, however he has yet to comment on the alleged nudie. He has though responded to the theft, the young Canadian heart throb tweeted:
“Sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy. yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other’s property.”
Listen, Justin, it’s OK. It’s 2012, something like 75% of North Americans between the ages of 18–30 have at least one nude photo of themselves floating around on the Internet without their consent. This isn’t a controversy. It’s proof you’re normal.
