WATCH: The Pope Has His Own Version of Tiger Beat Magazine


Watch out Justin Bieber. The Pope has a new magazine, complete with a glossy centerfold. No one is more delighted about it than 'papal fanboy' Stephen Colbert.

By popely standards, this Pope Francis is pretty hip. The Catholic church must agree because, in an effort to capitalize on his pope-ularity, there's a new weekly grocery store fanzine -- complete with a glossy pinup of the pontiff called "Il Mio Papa" or "My Pope."

No one seems more excited about adorning his bedroom walls with dreamy pics of his favorite idol than "papal fanboy" Stephen Colbert. The Colbert Report host marveled at the church's ability to adapt with modern times by quipping, "Starting a new print magazine. This proves that the church is only half a century behind the times."

Colbert then showed off his centerfold photo. "Look at that dreamboat. This is going on my dream board right next to my Cardinal Dolan Shetland pony collage."
