Justin Bieber recently got baptized in a New York City bathroom in the wake of the scandal involving the release of two videos showing Bieber dropping multiple N-bombs.

OK -- all is forgiven. Nothing to see here. Let's all move along.

Celebrity Pastor Carl Lentz -- who has worked with Bieber in the past -- reportedly told TMZ he spent a week doing intense Bible study with Bieber last month, right after he was being extorted by whomever possessed the videos of Bieber telling racist jokes and using inflammatory language when he was in his midteens.

Bieber's people were reportedly contacted two months back by a man demanding a million dollars to not release the videos to the public.

Bieber's reacquaintance with religion reportedly included studying passages in the Bible and attending services, and culminated in a baptism performed in a friend's bathtub.

He's Justin Bieber. He can't rent something bigger?

TMZ reported the reason Bieber got baptized in a bathtub was so he could keep things private. You know, until news of him dropping N-bombs went public and his people needed to leak a story about his rediscovering religion.

Sorry. That was cynical of me. Maybe the whole thing was a coincidence.

No ... really.
