Justin Bieber has major swag — both literally and figuratively — in his new video for “Boyfriend,” directed by Director X. The first couple teasers he released were apparently intended to throw us off or he changed his mind at the last minute. Instead of the Michael Jackson “Thriller” video I was expecting, it was truer to the behind the scenes video he released a couple days ago.
We get a glimpse of those teasers at the very beginning, but exactly 30 seconds in the song stops, the video goes blank and it starts all over again but this time at a car park.
Justin and his friends are doing donuts and posing pretty in their souped up cars. Although he has major bling and looks tuff (Grease Lightening tuff) he’s also a sensitive guy, whispering in a girl’s ear and playing her songs on the guitar. Really, who can resist someone that vows to be your Buzz Lightyear and eat fondue with you?
He’s markedly more grown-up in this video, seducing a lady who looks like an older version of Selena Gomez (aww). All in all he’s handling his evolution from kid to young adult pretty well. He also has some pretty sweet JT-style moves near the end of the video, which in fact do look cooler in gold shoes.
