NFTs have really been taking off recently, and a bunch of celebrities have been hopping on the trend. It seems that Justin Bieber did not want to be left out either, as the pop sensation has purchased a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT.
Bieber reportedly purchased the NFT for a whopping $1.29 million, which is 300% more than its valued market price. The singer took to Instagram to show off his new purchase, along with his own lyrics.
What if you had it all, but nobody to call, maybe then you’d know me. Cuz I’ve had everything but noones listening and that’s just f**kin lonely. #lonelyboredape
This particular NFT features a cartoon ape in a black T-shirt with tears in its eyes, which perhaps explains the choice of morose lyrics. Bieber paid for the artwork with 500 ethereum.
As per Bitcoin.com, 500 ethereum roughly equals $1.29 million. As of January 29, the NFT’s estimated value was $208,237. The artwork must have really resonated with Bieber. Check out his post below.
