So... did Justin Bieber get you?!?
The singer claimed earlier this week that footage from his camera and his computer was stolen.
He then engaged in what appeared to be a Twitter war with the culprit, who threatened to release an especially damaging piece of evidence against Bieber at noon today.
And what happened at noon today? Bieber unveiled the official music video for "Beauty and a Beat." That's right, America: you've been punked!
Wrote Justin after releasing a video that features Nicki Minaj:
"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…"
Sounds like some residual bitterness there from a few of the Justin Bieber scandals that have cropped up over the years.
But whatever the motivation, well played, Biebs. You fooled us.
