Justin Bieber's package was definitely photoshopped — here's proof (PHOTOS)
Justin Bieber's ripped body (or lack thereof) in his Calvin Klein campaign is causing quite the uproar. Since Bieber's shoot was unveiled, untouched photos of the pop star have slowly surfaced, leading us to believe that the kid's body is not what it's cracked up to be.
Bieber's body took an initial hit on Thursday morning, Jan. 8, when TMZ unveiled a photo of the singer's body minus a happy trail. Yes, you read correctly. If you take a look at the before and after photos, it seems like editors attempted to make the Biebs look a little more manly by inserting some hair around his pelvic area.
Even more eyebrows were raised when BreatheHeavy obtained an untouched version of another photo from the campaign later that day. In the newly surfaced photo, the singer doesn't look as jacked as the finalized print version. To compare the difference between the leaked photo and Calvin Klein's released shot, the pop music website uploaded a before and after Facebook video, so that viewers can really spot the differences in all sorts of, erm, areas of his body. According to an anonymous e-mail sent to the website, the singer was acting out of line and hit on model Lara Stone several times before she told him to stop. "Bieber specified he wanted to look 'taller and buff.' Bigger bulge implied," the source explained.
Miley Cyrus even pushed the Photoshop ploy in a recent post on her Instagram page, but it's not what you're thinking. Earlier this week, she shared a couple of shots of the campaign, where her face is superimposed onto Lara's body. While some may say it's a slight dig at the controversy surrounding the singer, we're just thinking she's just being Miley.
At the end of the day, we're not trying to hate on Bieber, as Photoshop is a very real part of every major advertisement campaign. It's a necessity to create the best visual for the outlet, but based on all these untouched photos, some of Calvin Klein's vision was clearly just an exaggerated perception of the truth.
