Justin Bieber posted an Instagram photo on Friday showing a man’s leg tattooed with the words “Better at 70,” along with a message about becoming a better person as he ages. Numerous outlets immediately jumped to the conclusion that the singer was showing off his own ink, but Gossip Cop has exclusively learned that Bieber isn’t the person featured in the picture. His rep assures us it’s “not him.”
The singer captioned the photo, “I look back at a lot of things in my life, mistakes, insecurities, and although I have felt I’ve wasted a lot of time it also makes me want to be better faster! For me personally I want to work everyday to be BETTER AT 70.” It’s unclear if Bieber intended to give off the impression that it’s his leg in the photo, but it isn’t.
The singer’s rep tells us it’s his friend who’s the person in the image. In fact, an accompanying video posted on Bieber’s Instagram page shows the musician playing the piano and repeatedly singing the lyrics, “Better at 70,” while his buddy gets inked. Check out below an Instagram video clearly showing Bieber’s friend is the one getting tatted up, as well as a larger photo of the “Better at 70” tattoo. In another photo posted to Instagram (see below), it does appear that Bieber got a matching tattoo, despite what his rep tells Gossip Cop. We will continue to investigate the situation until we get a definitive answer.
