Justin Bieber has been finally been revealed as a new model in a Calvin Klein campaign.
The 20-year-old superstar’s face isn’t seen in the teaser ad video posted by the underwear giant’s Twitter and Instagram accounts on Tuesday.
In the six second black and white clip, a shirtless, jeans and white Calvins-clad Justin is seen from behind playing a drum kit. The scene then cuts to the tatted Biebs suggestively pulling a blonde model towards him.
It’s been suggested that the model is Lara Stone, who previously presented an award with the “Confident” singer at the Fashion Rocks event in Brooklyn last September, where he was booed as he stripped, but showed guts by carrying on.

The female model wears an all-denim ensemble in the video, and neither her or Justin’s faces are seen.
The teaser is captioned, “Drum roll… #mycalvins.”
And on Instagram, too.
Details, such as the name of the campaign, roll-out timetable, and such aren’t included in the teaser, but that will come.
Last March, Justin floated the idea of modeling for Calvin Klein by posing a Twitter query asking his fans if they would like to see him model. The answer was a resounding “yes.”
And so it should be. The Canadian is rarely, if ever, not seen in Calvins, and with his buff physique, edgy appeal, and Beliebers fanbase, the singer can be viewed as a risky — but bravely progressive — choice and a perfect fit for a modern brand in his comeback year, after a 2013 and (first half) 2014 that could be described as mayhem.
There were rumors in April that Justin and pal model, Kendall Jenner, had filmed a shoot in New York City. However, reps for Klein refused to confirm or deny the speculation.
Mail Online reported last July that a source said a shoot had taken place.

The shirtless singer and lust interest get more intimate in the surprise reveal.
The spectacular news today comes a day after Justin teased fans with a message posted to his Fahlo account late Monday, stating Tuesday would be a “big day.”
Somewhat miraculously, Justin even woke up early to roll out a bed selfie, complete with moody facial expression, a ‘stache and a “didn’t-just-wake-up-like-that” swept style to his platinum blonde ‘do.
In anticipation, Beliebers sent the hashtag “#Justinwereready” soaring to No. 1 trend on Twitter. From a look at online chatter, it’s an indication of how starved the fandom is for positive news that has nothing to do with the singer’s dating life or ongoing lawsuits, but is about official, new music and campaigns such as today’s.
A Twitter snapshot follows.
