Justin Bieber goes (almost) topless before taking to the stage – what is he trying to do to us?

The sight of Justin Bieber's naked flesh is enough to make any girl go weak at the knees so but when he so deliberately lifts up his top we're not sure our heart rate can take it.

Before Justin Bieber performed on American TV programme, Today Show, he was preened to perfection by his eager entourage and played up to the camera…

It was during this make-up touch up that the singer coyly lifted up his top to expose a very toned torso as he looked into the distance with a very sexy stare.

The singer also took the opportunity to showcase some very fetching boxers in a pale blue shade with white band.

We also relished the opportunity to witness his tattoo sitting pretty to the left of his belly button. Nice!

These sexy snaps come just after Justin opened up to Fabulous magazine that he wanted to quit the music industry following the Mariah Yeater paternity scandal.

He said: "I got to the point where I thought, 'I don't want to do this. I just want to be normal'. It was difficult because I'd never gone through anything like that."

But we've once again got Usher to thank for keeping JB in our lives as the singer added:
"Usher was like, 'Prepare to have this for the rest of your career because it's not going to stop'."

Wow, we're just so grateful Justin didn't quit — we'd never have these pics to drool over!
