Justin Bieber performs for Entertainment Industry telecast for students and teachers

It will be unsurprising to many that Justin Bieber is the latest celebrity to have photos of his private parts on view to the world, but it may be shocking as to how.

The “What Do You Mean” singer didn’t have his phone hacked or accidentally tweet a photo of his penis when he meant to be Direct Messaging it. Bieber was caught taking a naked swim in a hot tub while on vacation in Bora Bora with Jayde Pierce.

Photographers with long-range lenses apparently working for New York Daily News snapped the photos as the singer got into the pool on the deck of his hotel room. His vacation partner Pierce was luckily in a robe when the photographers started taking pictures.

While the Daily News blocked out Bieber’s penis and backside with censor bars, that didn’t stop sneaky users on Twitter from finding the unedited snapshots, making Bieber’s penis available for viewing anyone that knows how to click “View content.”  (Warning, link contains NSFW images)

As mortifying as this undoubtedly will be for Bieber, he can take solace in the notion that the Internet seems to agree on one thing — it’s bigger than anyone expected.
