Justin Bieber’s Small Package Makes Us Hate Him Less

I always thought Justin Bieber was entitled and arrogant. But there’s clearly more going on below the surface. Or, in this case, the belt.

Through the years, I tried giving him the benefit of the doubt, seeing as how he grew up in the spotlight. But in interviews, there was always something about him that just didn’t settle right with me. Was it complete cockiness or insecurity?

When I saw the Biebs’ new photos in Calvin Klein’s campaign ads, I reluctantly thought to myself: “Wow, he’s sexy… But still a douchebag.” This morning, when leaked images of his non-photoshopped bulge hit the web, it changed everything.

I immediately felt sympathetic. Somehow, his lack of penis humanized him, and made him seem like a young kid who just wants to be liked. We know he works extra hard at getting swoll, and you can notice the designer even bulked up his triceps in the photos. Poor guy.

Until Selena Gomez gives us the answers we really want, maybe Bieber haters like me should back off for a bit. Until he does the next douchey thing and I forget all about his little problem.
