Bieber’s muscles are rippling in the new advertisements, along with a massive bulge in his Calvin Klein underwear.
Digital retouching also appears to have added body hair to his pelvic region to get the diminutive 5-foot, 7-inch tall singer a more manly look.
The fact that he was paired with model Lara Stone also involves some selective posing. Stone is 5-feet, 10-inches tall and towers of Bieber. But the height differential isn’t apparent in the ads.
But the real sleight-of-hand involves how Bieber was beefed up in the ads. The un-retouched photo was obtained by breathheavy.com, a gossip site.
Bieber’s arms, chest and back were made to look significantly larger, along with his neck. Dark shadowing enhanced the look of his physique.
The singer also got a butt lift and what looks like a penis enhancement.
Bieber was “was basically a douche,” on set, a source told the Web site. “He hit on [fellow model] Lara several times and she had to stop him, basically calling him out on being just a child.”
Bieber also has used the debut of his new Calvin Klein ad campaign to hype sketchy diet doctor Carlon Colker’s supposed “miracle” bodybuilding supplement known as MYO-X. But the product’s effectiveness is as illusory as Bieber’s fake muscles.
TheImproper detailed Colker’s long history of endorsing sketchy supplements and his run-ins with federal regulators and lawsuits in a story published two days ago.
