This week, the 18-year-old singer was spotted shopping in London, England, sporting an unusual piece of headgear: a gas mask. Umm… k. So far, no explanation — whether it be for disguise or health or just for fun (or channeling Darth Vader) — has been given, but we’re willing to speculate that it’s not for health, otherwise the caption for the photo would most likely not be “Mi eht tseb,” an anagram for “I’m the best.” And if it is for health reasons, then we’re totally on board.
Of course, there’s plenty more where this came from. During the 2011 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Justin provided commentary on the red carpet, donning thick-rimmed glasses and a faux mustache. One year later, he was seen at Venice Beach, California, wearing a gold Cirque de Soleil-style mask. At the time, he tweeted:
i am the #masterofdisguise

On a brighter, less-unsettling note, Justin’s new “Right Here” BELIEVE single, featuring Drake, has just been made available on iTunes. #win
