Justin Bieber’s twitter received quite a bit of attention after he revealed that some of his personal footage was stolen. Come to find out, the whole thing was a publicity stunt for his new music video with Nicki Minaj, called “Beauty and the Beat.”
If you’re in class and can’t listen, I’ll give you a play-by-play. The video starts off in ridiculous fashion, that being, at a water park. Aside from Nicki’s pom pom boob look, there’s a shout out to Selena Gomez, crazy hair, and some interesting choreography. There are synchronized swimmers and most likely the whole cast of Cirque du Soleil just doing their thing, fawning over the teeny-bopper in his custom made sneakers, and making the video exactly what it is: strange.
It is indeed a bizarre Bieber world, yet I still somehow manage to listen to the entire song. Did I mention that “Boyfriend” was my guilty pleasure over this past summer?
Anyway, when you get the chance, check out the video and let me know what you think.
