Yep, we were all duped by Bieber.

Bieber properly tugged the wool over our eyes when he claimed his laptop had been stolen and rude pics had been leaked online.

We even felt a bit sorry for him for all of two seconds.

It even seemed the thief had set up a Twitter account to taunt poor old Biebs, saying he had more personal footage to come.

Now, it turns out that @gexwy's Bieber teasing tweets were sent by Justin himself in a ploy to get us all to watch his new vid for Beauty and the Beat.

For now we will all have to just imagine, or er, not. Copyright: [wenn]

He could have just got naked in the video, that would have probably caught our attention too.

Justin confessed on Twitter: "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."

Aha! Well, we do know how much Bieber loves a prank.

We would definitely do this sort of thing if we were a celeb and we will admit as far as pranks go, Biebs really had us with this one!

And on the bright side at least we no longer have to fear what might happen to our poor eyes when they are confronted by more Bieber than we care to imagine.
