Pop Goes The News — The Internet exploded Wednesday after nude photos of Canadian pop star Justin Bieber went viral.
The photos show Bieber fully nude in Bora Bora and leave nothing to the imagination. The 21-year-old singer’s penis is on full display in most of the images, and at least one photo captures his bare buttocks.
The photos were reportedly snapped Tuesday while Bieber was vacationing in Bora Bora with model Jayde Pierce. Photo agency FameFlynet UK syndicated the photos, which were first published by the New York Daily News.
Most of the online buzz about Bieber’s penis seems to be about its size.
“Let’s just say we’re finally beginning to understand the source of that Magnum-sized ego,” wrote Kevin Fallon at The Daily Beast.
“It might get harder to fault Bieber for obnoxiously walking through life with his dick swinging—now that we’ve seen his dick swinging.”
At The Frisky, Megan Reynolds said Bieber’s penis “appears to have the girth and the heft of a half-eaten tube of cookie dough.”
There has been speculation about what the pop star is packing since he appeared in a series of advertisements for Calvin Klein underwear.
A prostitute who claims to have had sex with Bieber in 2013 told Panama’s Critica the singer’s penis is merely “average.”
But Brazilian model Tati Nevas reportedly told UK newspaper The Sun that Bieber is “very well endowed.”
Do this week’s photos — clearly taken using a powerful lens — constitute a violation of Bieber’s privacy? Online and on social media, many people believe they do.
The hashtag #RespectJustinsPrivacy has been picking up steam.
Other male stars who have had their penises shared online include Calum Hood of 5 Seconds of Summer, rocker Lenny Kravitz, Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, and actor Brad Pitt.
Here’s a look at some of the Twitter reaction:
