David Beckham Spreads Love To Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein Underwear Ads

Justin Bieber’s underwear ads in his Calvin Klein campaign have David Beckham’s seal of approval.

The 39-year-old footballer currently stars in his own underwear line for H&M, but had only but praise for the 20-year-old heartthrob when recently asked to weigh in.

Of Bieber’s turn in the CK campaign, Beckham told E! News, “Not bad, not bad, not bad. He looks good in his underwear ads. He looks very good.”

The Brit’s endorsement of the “Confident” singer’s underwear modelling will doubtless be appreciated by the younger star.

After Justin was unveiled as the face of Calvin Klein’s Spring 2015 campaign, initial wows over the stylish, black, and white ads with co-star model Lara Stone were quickly hit with alleged Photoshopping questions in the press.

Some said the Bieb’s pelvic hair had been thickened. Others said the singer’s “package” and abs were digitally enhanced.

But, after Justin’s legal team threatened to sue a site which posted a later discredited GIF purporting to show the singer with much smaller muscles and bulge, the photoshopping furor eventually died down.

That story gave way to a more positive narrative, that the Bieber-Stone fronted campaign received five times more social media penetration than Kim Kardashian’s nude cover for Paper magazine, adding 3.5 million users across social media platforms for Calvin Klein.

But although Beckham was generous about Bieber’s CK campaign, he isn’t worried about a younger pretenders coming up, as it were.

“I’m not worried about turning 40,” he insists. “People keeping turning around and saying, ‘You’re turning 40 — how do you feel?’ And I’m like, ‘I feel fine. I’m looking forward to it.’”

“I just don’t want a big party because I don’t like that kind of attention,” Beckham added, “but I’ll do a quiet dinner with friends.”

Meanwhile, before Bieber’s March 7 taping of his Comedy Central Roast rolls around, the singer was a surprise guest on a taped Thursday edition of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to celebrate the host’s birthday.

After revealing he was “nervous,” DeGeneres asked Bieber why he agreed to the roast.

“I think it’s just cool to be able to laugh at yourself,” he replied. “I’ve done some things that might not have been the greatest. I just want to be able to laugh about it — and own up to some of the things.”

Shortly after the show, Justin tweeted an apology for his nerves to Ellen.

Hours later, he uploaded an emotional video to fans on Fahlo and Facebook. The dark clip was captioned “Here we go.”

“I think I was nervous,” Justin began, then admitted, “because I was afraid of what people are thinking about me right now.”

He went on, “It’s been a minute since I’ve been in a public appearance, and I didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited, or basically how I’ve been acting the past year, year and a half.”

“I’m not what I was pretending to be,” the singer continued. “Why I say I was ‘pretending’ is often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover… of what we’re truly feeling inside. And, there was a lot of feelings going on in there.”

Justin confessed, “Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Just growing up in general is hard.”

He added, “I really want people to know how much I care, how much I care about people, and how I’m not that person to say,’I don’t give a f–k,’ you know? I’m not that kid.”

The singer concluded,”I’m a person who genuinely cares and although what’s happened in the past has happened.” He adds, “I just want to make the best impression on people and be kind and loving and gentle and soft and although people can call me a ‘softie’ — that’s how my mom raised me.”

The heartthrob’s fans trended “WeDontJudgeYouJustin” and “Dear Justin” on Twitter after the video diary dropped. Since then, countlesss media commentators have weighed in on Bieber’s raw reveal along a spectrum of idiocy to empathy.
