It was the Instagram everyone was ooh-ing and aww-ing over.
Cody Simpson and girlfriend Gigi Hadid appeared to have taken it all off for a sexy photo shoot by famed photographer Mario Testino.
But in a new interview, the 18-year-old singer is coming clean about how the revealing photo really came about.
"I couldn't really say no to Mario Testino," Simpson told HuffPost Live Tuesday. "It was a weird scenario because we were shooting in Vogue with Mario and at the end of the day he was like, 'Take off your clothes.'"
He continued, "I'm no male model. That's not what I do at all. I'm a musician."
