All the Nude photo rumors that sprung up because Justin Beiber’s laptop was stolen at a gig and an anonymous blogger was threatening to release “personal footage” of the star.
Twas all lies. It is actually his new video with Nicki Minaj! Earlier today we had our first inkling that not all was as it seemed. The star had previously revealed that his laptop, containing personal files, had been stolen. Then two nights ago a mysterious Twitter user called ‘Gexwy’ claimed to have it, and threatened to leak dramatic footage found on it at midday yesterday.
Justin responded: “@gexwy no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it. #toostrong”
Hitting back at critical Beliebers, ‘gexwy’ said: “u have no idea what i have and when u see tomorrow u will feel different.”
Nicki Minaj then set tongues wagging when she tweeted “uh oh…the barbz have a BIG surprise cmng tmrw” – a message that was retweeted by Justin. Justin then himself tweeted the word “noon”. Keeping up?
It all seemed a little conicidential and our hunch was right as at noon US time Justin began tweeting a couple of cryptic posts:
“since i was 14 i have had a lot of things said about me, from dying, to taking hormones, to dying again, to stuff about my family…”
“to saying i had a baby with a woman i never even met. nude pics, drugs, my family, my character…but today…today i get to be in on it.”
He then retweeted a link from @gexwy, the supposed blogger who had Biebs personal footage which, of course, instead led to his brand new video for ‘Beauty and the Beat’ with Nicki, before thanking the fake thief!
Pretty clever, we think you’ll agree! As for the actual video it’s pretty special. Continuing the cryptic, viral theme it opens with a black screen before these words pop up:
“In October of 2012 three hours of personal footage was stolen from musician Justin Bieber”
“The following footage was illegally uploaded by an anonymous blogger.”
The ‘Cloverfield’ like opening then cuts to a series of clips of Biebs, from footage of him with his old hair playing piano to more recent clips, before Bieber guides the camera around a ping pong game where ‘Beauty and The Beat’ is written on the table. The video then has us following Biebs with his camera through hoardes of bikini clad dancers, and syncronized swimmers at an almighty pool party.
Eventually Nicki turns up, clad in a typically understated outfit of pink tutu and pink pom pom bikini top.
