Justin Bieber is not happy the Internet saw his penis.

In an interview with Access Hollywood set to air Monday, the 21-year-old musician told host Billy Bush he reacted much like anyone else would to the news that nude photos of them were floating around online.

"My first thing was like...how can they do this?" Bieber asked.

"Like, I feel super violated," he told the show. "Like, I feel like I can't step outside and feel like I can go outside naked. Like, you should feel comfortable in your own space ... especially that far away."

He did inject a bit of levity into the moment, adding "That was shrinkage for me."

Mic's Kevin O'Keefe previously wrote that gawking at Bieber's nudes was morally questionable.

"It doesn't make invading someone's privacy any less gross," O'Keefe wrote. "So what if he's a celebrity? That doesn't make him any less of a person with a right to not have his penis splayed all over social media platforms."

Unfortunately for Bieber, that didn't stop his own dad from weighing in on the photos via Twitter, asking his son "what do you feed that thing. #proud daddy" — to the Internet's collectively raised eyebrows.
