Justin Bieber 'nude pictures' surface: It's probably fake, so calm down

justin-bieber-nude-pics-leaked.jpgWe should have been more specific when we hoped that a Justin Bieber sex tape wouldn't surface after his computer was stolen, because mere hours later, there's no sex tape... but there is a photo being passed around Twitter. A nude photo.

Sigh.

There's been no official response from Bieber's camp, and until there is, we're going to assume it's not him in the photo. Hallelujah.

First of all, the die-hard Beliebers on Twitter are insisting that the photo is several months old. They also claim that the belly button in the pic doesn't match Bieber's, but we're going to politely decline to investigate the belly button, as we prefer not to look at this photo longer than absolutely necessary. According to one fan on Tumblr, the nipples also aren't the right shape. kill us now. Thanks.

You can spot the tiny bird tattoo on his hip in the photo -- which matches Bieber's -- but that could definitely be faked or photoshopped. Since you can't see the nude person's face, we're giving Bieber the benefit of the doubt. For the sake of our own sanity.

On Wednesday, Bieber 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. had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect"'

...He probably shouldn't have mentioned it.
