We just got punked -- by Justin Bieber!

The teen superstar just dropped his latest music video for "Beauty and a Beat" -- and it appeared to have been made entirely from personal footage off Bieber's "stolen" laptop, which he claimed was taken during his recent concert in Tacoma, Wash.

Of course, this means that Bieber's stolen laptop, along with the Twitter taunts from the alleged thief that threatened to post the singer's supposedly embarrassing homemade videos, was just an elaborate marketing hoax. Not to mention a clever way for the 18-year-old to have a little fun at the media's expense.

Bieber explained that his media prank was a way of warning fans not to believe everything they read about the pop star.

"Since i was 14 i have had a lot of things said about me, from dying, to taking hormones, to dying again, to stuff about my family... to saying i had a baby with a woman i never even met. nude pics, drugs, my family, my character...but today...today i get to be in on it," Bieber tweeted on Friday.

"Beauty and a Beat," the third single from Bieber's third studio album Believe, also features Nicki MinajThe rapper has a colorful cameo in the video, as she and the teenage singer grind poolside for hundreds of partygoing spectators.

Watch the video for Bieber's "Beauty and a Beat," below.

    Justin Bieber is a stupid dick for accusing my city of stealing his dumb laptop, he is an idiot and Washington State doesn't want his ass back.
