Justin Bieber is back and completely Photoshop-free on the April cover of Men’s Health, appropriately titled “The Reinvention Issue.”
The 21-year-old’s “well-endowed” bulge sparked debate after appearing in his infamous and now widely-spoofed Calvin Klein ad campaign, as many believed the honorary twink used Photoshop to pack on an extra couple inches.
In a behind-the-scenes video for the current MH shoot, he’s quick to dispel any new rumors before they start.
“I love the fact that I got in shape the past two years and I’m finally getting recognition for it,” he says. “It’s not Photoshopped, for all you fools out there saying it’s Photoshopped.”
He continued: “Honestly I just want people to know the real me. I feel like there’s a lot of things that have been put out there that aren’t necessarily true. I can honestly say I’ve done some things that might not have been the best decisions at the time, [but] I’m growing and learning. I’m a human being.”
It’s impossible not to be turned on by the new-and-improved Biebs. He seems genuinely humble in the clip below, making a case for his new “grown up” image while flexing his itty-bitty tattooed muscles.
His gay-baiting isn’t as overt as Nick Jonas’s, but he’s baiting nonetheless. You have our attention, Justin.
