So this was all one big publicity stunt!

In effort to tease his new video “Beauty And A Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and his camp claimed “footage” was stolen from his computer, causing the media to speculate about the possibility of nude pics and a sex tape with his girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Seems like Justin Bieber gets the last laugh, and he controls his own destiny with never-before-seen “leaked” footage.

After tweeting countless links to false stories about him online, Justin explains why he pulled the “leaked” footage stunt:

“Beauty And A Beat” is off of Justin Bieber’s album, Believe, which is currently available in stores.
