The internet went into meltdown earlier this month when Justin Bieber's penis was flopped out across the internet for the whole world to gawp at, thanks to a pesky pap hiding in a bush with a long lens camera. Bieber, who was catching some nudey rays at a remote ocean cabin in Bora Bora, has acknowledged the invasion of privacy and shrugged off the incident with good-hearted humor.
The images, which feature the 'What Do You Mean' singer frolicking around in the buff, were debatably obtained; but seemingly, being spied on from afar is not an arrestable offense when the subject is as famous as captain Beeb.
In an interview with Zach Sang & The Gang radio show, Justin said:
"At the end of the day, the photos, they’re not terrible! I still felt like I wanted to keep that part for me, you know? ...I felt like it was a little bit of an invasion of privacy. And when I first found out about it, I was like… my heart sank."
Totally fair enough.
In an attempt to lighten the mood, Jeremy Bieber, Justin's father, took to Twitter to congratulate his son on his package.
@justinbieber what do you feed that thing. #proud daddy
Which, according to the internet, got a full 5/5 on the awks scale.
Well, clearly things are pretty open in the Bieber household, as rather than being creeped out and finding his dad's tweet inappropriate, Justin actually found it pretty funny. Hilarious, in fact.
"I thought it was hilarious. 'What do you feed that thing. It’s such a dad thing to say. When I found out people were hating on him for saying that, I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ What dad wouldn’t be proud of that? It’s not like he’s saying it to an 11-year-old. I’m 21 years old."
I'm not sure if a son's penis size is something fathers are generally proud of, but that may just be something I missed. Also, as a fun side note, in the same interview with Zach Sang & The Gang, Bieber revealed that his fans have a pet name for his junk and that name is...
"They call it Jerry."
Not what I'd have imagined but it keeps with the Jeremy/Justin/Jaxon (his brother) 'J' theme, which is quite fitting seeing as it seems this bunch like to keep it in the family.
