Rather odd.

That’s all that can really be said about comments made by Jeremy Bieber’s father after paparazzi images suggested his son had been generously rewarded in the below-the-belt department.

“What you feed that thing?” he wrote on Twitter. “#Proud daddy.”

The comments of Mr Bieber - at once embarrassing, creepy and just plain strange - were almost as awkward as the New York Daily News’s high-minded feature that included full-frontal photos of the 21-year-old singer while he was on holiday in Bora Bora, in the South Pacific.

The images sparked a debate about the invasion of privacy, the publicity machines behind today’s celebrities and the hypocrisy of people pretending to be outraged by such things.
