The Beliebers know Justin too well! And they guessed it right!
Justin Bieber's reported laptop and camera theft
was all just a publicity stunt for his newest video for the song "Beauty And A Beat" featuring Nicki Minaj from his latest album, "Believe".
The alleged hacker @gexwy
promised to reveal more stolen footage
from Justin at noon, US time (midnight in the Philippines) as they have been exchanging threatening tweets to each other these past few days. But he was part of the gig too as he was the first to release the video through this tweet:
Justin even thanked the supposed hacker after tagging him and Nicki Minaj on Twitter. The "hacker" continued to tweet that: "I told you I would post something WORTH watching and talking about". Indeed it is, as media outfits and fans were duped by one of Justin's biggest pranks yet!
The first-person POV video was a first for Justin, allowing him to write, shoot and direct everything all by himself. This is his technically his directorial debut, holding the camera himself almost the entire time. At the beginning of the video, there was a disclaimer that the following footage was stolen from Justin. The caption read this:
"In October of 2012 three hours of personal footage was stolen from musician Justin Bieber," the video opens. "The following footage was illegally uploaded by an anonymous blogger."
The video begins with a montage of home videos from random moments in Justin's life then shifts to a giant pool party with dancers and games all having fun in a big water park. Justin dives in and takes more footage underwater too. Nicki Minaj also makes a cameo in a pink tutu and joins in the frame as Justin holds the camera.
After the video was released, the teen pop star shared on Twitter
that this was his way of going with the flow of all the false stories he has been in since the beginning of his career. The stunt is proof that he is not affected with all of those rumors: "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."
Justin is known to be a huge prankster, constantly joking around with his management and staff. He has also appeared on a US prank show victimizing Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus.
