Justin Bieber posted quite a few topless photos over the weekend, and he's hoping that the skintimate snaps will have fans comparing him to an underwear model (and no, he doesn't want to be a Victoria's Secret angel).
Here's what the Biebs tweeted about his three topless photos, including one that revealed a new crown tattoo:
"Im thinking to myself "wow really justin 3 shirtless pics in 3 days" who do i think i am a young @Mark_Wahlberg sheesh lol"
Back before Justin's actor friend Mark Wahlberg was getting critical acclaim for movies like The Fighter, he was a Calvin Klein underwear model. He and the Biebs have probably bonded because Mark was also a young musician onceÂ—Justin can only dream of his rapper alter ego Shawty Mane being as good at spitting rhymes as Marky Mark.
But Justin Bieber probably wasn't just tweeting topless photos in hopes of scoring an underwear modeling gigÂ—it was likely his way of trying to get Beliebers to vote for him since he's up against some tough competition at the MTV VMAs.
As The Hot Hits points out, Justin will be going up against British boy band One Direction in the Best Pop Video category. Since it's five against one, the Biebs definitely has his work cut out for him, so the shirtless photos could give him an edge. The one shown here features the Biebs striking a pose that's very Kim Kardashian.
However, One Direction band members Zayn Malik and Niall Horan were recently shown in nothing but their underwear in a MTV VMAs promo entitled My First Time, so maybe the Biebs better watch his back.
Perhaps next year MTV should add a category for "Best Artist in Undies" or somethingÂ—it might encourage The Wanted to get in on this revealing competition. However, if enough guys voted, Katy Perry and her cupcakes would probably take home the moon man.
So do you think that Justin has been stripping on Twitter in an attempt to win VMA votes?
