Emblem 3 Mocks Bieber


Well, they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery—lack of modesty notwithstanding.

X Factor alum Emblem3 proved themselves to be cheeky Beliebers by posting a twitpic that mocked naked photos of Justin Bieber that recently surfaced online.

And, in the spirit of creative musical partnership, the rockers even gamely offered their, um, collaborative services.

On Wednesday, band members Keaton Stromberg, Wesley Stromberg and Drew Chadwick posted a photo showing them naked and standing in front of a window with nothing but musical instruments concealing their family jewels.

The rockers also made sure to one-up Bieber's snapshots: They not only posed with a guitar—à la Biebs—but also threw in a keyboard for good measure.

"Hey @justinbieber, we're in Canada ready for the jam sesh!" they captioned the pic.

The arrival of Emblem3's racy photo is conveniently timed: Their debut album, Nothing to Lose, was released on July 30. (Its lead single, "Chloe (You're the One I Want)," dropped last April.)

The trio, who hail from Sequim, Wash., duked it out on the second season of The X Factor before getting the boot last December.

Bieber's naked photos surfaced online on Monday, and they were reportedly taken on Thanksgiving 2012 at the home of the Canadian singer's grandmother, in Ontario. In them, the 19-year-old "Boyfriend" crooner pranks his family by walking around the house naked with nothing but a guitar to cover his naughty bits.

They're not the only recent snapshots of Biebs to turn heads these days: On Tuesday, the singer was spotted out on a lunch date with model Ashley Moore in Los Angeles.

Biebs was seen picking her up in his new Ferrari before the duo hightailed it to French restaurant Bouchon in Beverly Hills.
