Biebs Cans His Shirt In Cannes: Whether it’s in the club or the street, Justin Bieber does not need a shirt! After being spotted shirtless at Gotha club (where most other patrons appeared to have kept their clothes on) in Cannes on Monday night, Justin stepped out on Tuesday sans shirt again. Roll Call’s weather team determined that the French city only had a high temperature of 72 degrees on Tuesday, which was just too hot for the Biebs! The singer, flanked by security, was spotted showing off his vast collection of chest and torso tattoos. Let’s hope if Biebs attends any red carpet events for any films while in Cannes that he keeps his top on.
