We aren’t afraid to say it: Justin Bieber is actually kind of hot. There. The hardest part is over and we can all move on.
Or can we?
Here’s what we know about the Biebs, and truth be told, it’s not a lot.
- He’s a bit pint-sized. In the gay world he’d be of the “pocket” variety.
- His tough-guy attitude is about as transparent as a room full of air, but, hey, he’s 19 so maybe it’s just a phase. But yeah, kind of a dick.
- The hair on his head is perfectly coiffed, but good luck finding hair anywhere else on his body.
Well now he’s the face of Calvin Klein undies, and we have to say we were a bit surprised to see a new side of Justin in the campaign:
Well hello there, sailor. Same pouty face, but the rest of him seems to have grown up over night.
Which, as is now to be almost expected in national underwear campaigns, is due in large part to the good people at Photoshop.
First, there’s the body hair. Take a look at these side-by-sides from TMZ:
See that rugged patch of lower belly hair on the right? Yeah, someone was actually paid money to go all Chia Pet on his abs.
And then there’s this most telling comparison of the unretouched main photo next to it’s beefed up, bulged up finished product:
And hey, we’re still going to say it: Justin Bieber is kind of hot. But muscled alpha-male man’s man?
Come on, it’s the Biebs.
Not a fan, but objectively, the original photos appear more digitally modified than the released ones.
From where I sit, the guy is attractive now, magazine photos, as we all know, aren’t real world.
There is the infamous incident in which some magazine ran a “photo” of a woman’s head on Ann Margaret’s body.
I Think he looks amazing. He’s young 20yrs old. He will make more mistakes but isn’t that what our youth is all about? And old age is for the recovery I guess lol…
Anyway, I hope miss thang is saving up her coins cause…the music biz aint what it use to be honey.
Not attractive in the least.
In what universe is Justin Bieber not beautiful? Does anyone think he got so successful because of his music?
Like the fact they had to beef up the croch as well. Now we know the cars are “compensation”.
PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID
If only they could have edited out the strong whiff of rancid cheese presently emanating from my computer screen
@marionpage – it was Oprah’s head on Ann Margaret and I believe on the cover of TV Guide

At least he got rid of that damm boystache………
And a memo to the BOQB: You are allowed to hate on him for some of his Dbag antics, but 100% Co-sign with Doug, you cannot deny the fact that he is smoking hot. He has a beautiful face and perfect body with not an ounce of fat on said body…….
And as to the Beiber Bulge, ironic thing is that based on his height and body type can vitrually guarantee he has a very large tool………….
@Doughosier: He got famous because he was “cute” but sexually nonthreatening to preadolescent girls.
@cflekken: well, that depends on what attracts you.
Yea not might type at all; the photoshopping is just pathetic
He’s objectively handsome and bordering on hot–but not extraordinarily so. I see much hotter guys in my neighborhood that don’t need any photo retouching at all.
Omg the even made his bulge bigger….gross
Alan down in Florida
They create his voice with autotune and other tricks. Why should we be surprised that they photoshop him into a prematurely masculine twink?
If only there was one thing in that head or that came out of that mouth I liked.
I completely agree! He is gross and nothing but trash with money.
A Black or Latino male next time and little to no photo shop needed!
Low Country Boy
What? Fashion photos are airbrushed? I’m shocked!
Yeah he’s hot until he opens his mouth—he’s an entitled popups idiot.
Not like ad companies haven’t been photoshopping models for years. It’s what they do. Too bad they couldn’t have made him look smarter or more mature. Still just a child.
Simple. They had to make him look like a man.
Whether before or after he looks like a constipated meth head.
Anyone who finds this pseudo-musician attractive is missing the point. This piece of excrement has been p’shopped to attract just you silly people, and you’ve eaten it up. Heavens forbid that this much attention was paid to a real musician.
They are both fine looking. I don’t see the huge issue about enhancing pictures?
@qlm: NO, they don’t.
@MarionPaige: No, she’s not.
@Doughosier: all possible universes on every possible plane of existence
@PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS: A body without fat is very under nourished and not attractive to any healthy, well-adjusted individual. If it’s penis were of average or larger proportion, digital enhancement would not have been necessary. It’s posture is atrocious. It’s body language is that of a sociopath. It’s facial features are more feminine than the majority of females on this planet. This thing cannot be categorized as attractive.
I realize it’s a matter of taste, or lack thereof, but even if I was a pre-pubescent girl, I doubt I’d find him that attractive and/or hot…airbrushed or not. Isn’t this minimally talented (using the term loosely) twink’s 15 minutes about up already?
Oh come on, this poor kid.
EVERY advertising image is extensively photoshopped.
One thing you can’t tell from the pics, is, isn’t this guy like 5ft 4in tall?
Just some obnoxious little grommet. Honestly I might have to make an effort to not buy CK underwear if they’re in the store, they might smell like vinegar and water from the Bieber Douchebag runoff.
Yeah it takes a lot of photoshop to alter a boy to look closer to a man. Next time just use an actual man and not a kid!
Bieber was a cute kid. Now he’s a cute twink. Judging by his Dad, he’ll become a good looking man. Money and professional stylist help. I’d like to have the name of whoever did the retouching. I have some photos for him to work on. The female model is all wrong for this photo shoot. She’s too sexy. Should have been a pretty girl next door.
Not a fan of Bieber at all but I agree with the first poster, the ‘original’ photos look more photoshopped than the ones that were released. Look at the shadow of the bulge? How could it be the exact same size in the original photo as the released. They may have enhanced his body hair and smooth some lines but I don’t think as much was changed as some would want you to believe.

So am guessing you have never heard of a grower not a showrer?
It’s easy to tell the Bieber fans, because they all start off saying “Not a fan of his but….”
And then they go on to defend him. lol
Mark Wahlberg’s Calvin Klein look would probably be considered too steriody today by most people. Wahlberg is also 43 years old. So, if you are slamming Bieber for Wahlberg, you are basically publicly acknowledging that you have aged out of the target demographic of the ad in question.
It’s like saying the original Robcop was better than the remake. THIS may be true but 99.9% of today’s movie going audience (targeted by the remake) have probably never seen the original RoboCop.
Thankfully for Bieber, he employs a collection of big, beefy, genuine alpha males who can easily pick him up, toss him into a car and motor away from confrontations his big mouth initiates. In reality, his legal controversies (DUI, egg vandalism, etc.) pale in comparison to the obnoxious and more seriously criminal acts of others considered “celebrities” in America. Specifically, one of the sons of a Real Housewives-Miami wench was charged with the ultraviolent beating of a man in Miami; a Real Housewives-NJ wench recently reported to prison and her husband is or will soon be reporting to prison; the sex tapes of the Kardashians, Paris Hilton, et al. Mark Wahlberg blinded a man in a robbery attack and instead of being shunned from Hollywood he was generously allowed to pursue a financially rewarding career in movies. Bieber’s posture could be better; it looks like he slumps his shoulders in most photos I have seen.
@qlm: I thought the same thing. He’s done a lot of shirtless appearances on tv and he looks more like the “after” photo than the “before” i wonder if this isn’t a prank.
@PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS: You can guarantee anything “in your dreams” but it looks like a pretty small dingaling to me. But maybe its a grower, not a show-er.
@MarionPaige: So I am not the only one who remembers that pic of Oprah on Ann Margaret’s body.
Oh please? You call that a bulge? My tomcat is bigger than that.
Bad Ass Biker
Justin Bieber is NOT hot. He is a spoiled, self centered, arrogant little punk who will probably end up in prison some time in the future and who gives a rat’s ass about the size of his dick?
“Justin Bieber is NOT hot….”
Queerty, adolescent-minded comments here, and screaming teen girls (mostly white) disagree with you.
I prefer the “Bad Ass Biker” variety, minus the drug, crime, violent type!
@Brendan: I’m studying the pics side by side where they are pointing it out, and I still can’t see it: What body hair? Show me HAIR!
I know I’m probably gonna catch hell for this, but…
Would it be so hard to just IGNORE Justin Bieber?
Just for, oh, let’s say a month.
For one lousy, stinking, piddling month, unless it is absolutely *vital* to you, just avoid all things Bieber. If he’s on the radio, switch stations, on the TV turn it off, or pop in a DVD (I hear “Frozen” is pretty popular). If he’s in a news paper, turn the page!
Yeah… You don’t like his music or HIM. Fine. I don’t like rap music. Never have. That has not stopped ONE person from listening to it. Nobody has come up to me and said “You know what, you’re right! Eminem does stink! I’m going home and erase all his files from my phone/tablet/laptop/ipad and burning all his CD’s!”
Doesn’t it seem to follow that if you take a guy, who starts out as a kid at 13, and you pummel him with daily internet rants about how he “looks like a girl” and “sounds like a girl” and make facebook pages and YouTube videos that feature pictures of him altered to look as if he is wearing makeup and change the spelling of his name from Justin to “Justine” and post comments like “That’s not a guy, that’s a Dyke!” and “She has a vagina!” and on and on and on…
(Never once allowing for the fact that he is part GIRL. You know? HIS MOTHER!)
So, he starts getting into fights and driving fast cars and drinking and getting tattoos and all these other things that Chris Brown and Lil Wayne and a whole bunch of other males in the music industry have done, and no one calls them girls… At least not very often.
But, think about it… Before he started faking that he is (was) as the late Joan Rivers once said “A big black thug” he was already getting death threats, one plot to kidnap and kill him was actually stopped by police! How many people have heard about that and said “What the heck did they do that for?”
And all the posts (not HERE, but elsewhere on the Internet) about how great it will be when he “dies from an overdose at 27” and how much better it would be if it happened even sooner…
When you think about the bullying that’s going on in schools and the suicides that have been linked to it, how is it a fair or good thing for so many people to be venting so much venom at this guy when we would HOPE that the children in this world would NOT gang up on ONE PERSON to collectively $hit on his or her head?
Just think about it. He’s annoying and spoiled and all that other stuff. He’s also had to navigate becoming an “over-night success” (despite however undeserving you might feel he is of it) and he’s pretty much been handling it without any guidance, and that’s probably not helping him, in terms of making better choices.
I don’t know. I just feel like there are worst things and worse people in the world right now, than Justin Bieber. Just forget him. He’s not worth the attention anyway.
Just looks like he’s wearing an incontinence pad, or for him….a maxi-pad.
