This week a story started going around that Justin Bieber‘s laptop computer and camera were stolen from his hotel room. Immediately, people started to wonder if any embarrassing or incriminating footage would be leaked to the Internets (yesterday we heard he was being “blackmailed” by the person who “stole” his computer). It turns out that the story, started by Bieber‘s people, was a “viral ruse” in order to generate hype for the release of his new music video Beauty and a Beat (which features rapper Nicki Minaj). The video, which you can watch in full above, is supposedly made up of the “stolen footage” that was found on Bieber‘s computer … which we now know is bullshizz. Check out the video and see what you think. Are you impressed/annoyed with the idea of Bieber‘s people telling lies to promote the release of his music video?
