Actor Orlando Bloom was photographed on vacation with singer Katy Perry in Sardinia, Italy, Tuesday, although it isn’t the new romance that has the internet in a tizzy.

Nope, for whatever reason, Bloom decided to let it all hang out.

He and Perry went on a tandem standup paddle session out on the crystal-clear water and Bloom was completely naked.

The strange episode has left us with so many questions — mainly, “Why?” And “He paddleboards?”

While many beaches in Europe are topless, it’s uncommon to go trunk-less. Even stranger is that he’s paddling around a bikini-clad Perry, who seems totally unfazed.

Of course, people were quick to react to the shocking photos that were released by New York Daily News.

Perry is releasing a music video today titled “Rise.” Whether this was Bloom’s way of erhmm … promoting it is still unclear.
