Justin Bieber Says Nude Pic 'Wasn't as Bad as I Thought It Was Gonna Be'

Justin Bieber appeared on Ellen Monday morning to promote his upcoming fourth album, Purpose, and revealed to host Ellen DeGeneres that he wasn't all that upset when the nude photos of him vacationing in Bora Bora flooded the Internet last month.

DeGeneres asked Bieber how it was that he didn't spot the photographer. "Usually we're all pretty good at spotting paparazzi," the talk show host pointed out. "They hide in boats and pretend to be fisherman and we're like, you're paparazzi. I mean, we're pretty good at it. How did you not see that there was paparazzi there?"

"Well I just didn't see them," Bieber said. "I think I wasn't really looking out for them either."

Degeneres asked Bieber how quickly he learned about the pictures.

"It was pretty much like a couple days later," said the singer, "[Manager] Scooter [Braun], he was like, 'Yo I hate to tell you this, but your penis is on the Internet.' I was like, 'what?' The first thing I saw that the censored one and it had like the black thing over it. And I was like, 'oh my goodness like I don't know what this is gonna look like.'

DeGeneres agreed, saying, "I'm no expert, but I heard it was good."

"It was alright," Bieber grinned.
