"New jet for Christmas, and she's beautiful," the pop star said Thursday on Instagram as he posted a selfie with the plane's tricked-out interior in the background. He followed up with a shot of just the interior.
"Merry Christmas she's a beauty," wrote the 20-year-old, who's been tweeting this week about spending the holiday with his family.
Annnnnd -- the rest of us got gift cards.
Given the Ministry's minimal (read, nonexistent) experience with private-jet purchases, we can't exactly peg this one's make and model at a glance, but even a smallish plane in this category would carry a multimillion-dollar price tag for a solo owner.
Perhaps by "new," Bieber meant it was new to him? New in general?
Or perhaps Bieber just gets a kick out of sparking crazy Bieber headlines with little or no effort?
Seriously, even manager Scooter Braun, who gave his premiere client a $100,000 car as an 18th-birthday present, would be hard-pressed to raise the bank needed to land this puppy under the tree.
Then again, Bieber was the highest-paid celebrity younger than 30 in 2014, according to Forbes, which estimated his annual take at $80 million.
Not bad for a retired guy.
