With great fame comes great exposure. For Justin Bieber, a 2017 incident brought a little more exposure than he bargained for; naked photos of Justin were leaked via long-time (on again, off again) girlfriend Selena Gomez‘s Instagram.
The leaked photos were reportedly the same ones that flashed their way through the internet back in 2015. Considering the fact that once something is on the internet it’s impossible to hide it, team Bieber has done an amazing job protecting the young singer.
Justin commented on the leaked photos stating, “I feel like I can’t go outside naked.” But fear not, Beliebers—the pop star has continued to faithfully keep up his Instagram, sharing a plethora of sexy shirtless selfies.
The singer has continued to receive a mixed press reception, occasionally being revealed for bad behavior, but always redeeming himself in one way or another.
Notably, Justin returned from Coachella this year with a war story. After a man strangled a woman at a party and refused to let go, Justin used physical force to set the woman free. The strangler was later taken into custody, allowing Justin to get back to his weekend in the desert.
Will saving a life at Coachella get Justin out of his 99.3 million followers rut on Instagram? Maybe. Maybe not… But for now, as everyone lies in wait for the next naked photo hack, the Biebs continues to do his part to quench the interest of the masses with a constant array of selfies.
Bed selfies. Shirtless selfies. Sunglasses Selfies. Six-Pack Selfies. But to anyone who would criticize his vanity, how could you tell someone to “go and love yourself” without properly demonstrating that life skill?
