Despite some fans' complete mortification over Justin's dad, Jeremy Bieber, recently boasting about his son's private parts on Twitter, the 21-year-old pop star isn't bothered by it in the slightest.
"I thought it was hilarious," Justin tells the Zach Sang & The Gang radio show in a new interview. "'What do you feed that thing?' he said. It's such a dad thing to say. When I found out people were hating on him for saying that, I was like, 'Are you kidding me? What dad wouldn't be proud of that?'"
"It's not like he’s saying it to an 11-year-old," he points out. "I'm 21 years old, you know what I mean?
Nude photos of Justin while on vacation in Bora Bora hit the Internet earlier this month, after which Jeremy tweeted,"@justinbieber what do you feed that thing. #proud daddy." He later followed it up with a picture of a dog, writing, "@justinbieber he's a beaut."
Despite positive reaction such as this to the eyebrow-raising shots, Justin insists that he's still unhappy about the invasion of privacy.
"At the end of the day, the photos, they're not terrible! But honestly, at first -- and before the reaction was what it was, and still with the reaction -- I still felt, like, I wanted to keep that part for me, you know?" he explains. "I felt like it was a little bit of an invasion of privacy. I just don't want people to think I'm, like, 'Yeah' [points to the camera]. And when I first found out about it ... my heart sank."
"What am I gonna do now? It's out there," he adds about making the best of the situation. "So the more I stress about it, I'm like, 'They're out, what can I really do?'"
Justin even jokes that his fans now have a name for his package.
