After the seemingly trend of men showing bare butts in social media like those of Justin Bieber and John Legend, a throwback pic taken by Charlie Puth three years ago resurfaced on social media. The photo was taken on a room as a mirror shot selfie. Charlie Puth was half naked with only his towel on. However, his behind was not completely covered leaving his butt-crack exposed.
Here is the photo:
When the photo spread out just recently, his fans (and those who does not know him at all) generated fixed reactions. Later on, Puth apologizes on his twitter account for anyone he has offended.
Moving on, the Marvin Gaye singer was not actually taken that much popularity when the photo was uploaded. Puth’s popularity started being a YouTube sensation. His fame skyrocketed when the Fast and Furious 7 soundtrack song, See You Again by Wiz Khalifa reach the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 charts. He was the feature artist of the song singing the chorus and bridge with his incredible vocals.
Charlie Puth admits that he works out a lot and being an “insecure” person that time, he needs some time to show off. That bare back photo was actually not his first time to display his body in social media. Here are his two other photos:
There is no doubt that he is the person behind those photos. Just look at those iconic eyebrows. In fact, he even admits it.
The pictures most likely was not viewed as “scandalous” among his fanbase. They even enjoy it. The important thing is that it generated so much buzz in the internet without damage a fraction of Puth’s career.
Whether is it alright for a person to be objectified regardless of sex or gender, that remains a question.
