Huh. Well, that was a thing.
Can I just say I’m relieved not to be a pubescent female? I just wasted 3 and a half minutes on “music” Wunderkind Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” video, and it’s certainly not delivering anything “Baby” didn’t, except that his hair looks like it’s gotten a There’s Something About Mary treatment, and if you’re old enough to get that reference, you’ll know what I mean. His dance moves are isolated and so very, very rehearsed, the lyrics are repetitive and insipid, although kudos for using ‘fondue’ in a rap, and for rhyming things with it. Your writer is to be congratulated. Your skin is so dewy you could be in a clearasil commercial and you’re wearing more lip gloss than most of the girls in your obviously 18-year-old-boy’s-wet-dream video. Not that I have a problem with the look you’re putting out there, I mean, I think Adam Lambert is HAWT, and his makeup is spectacular every time he’s anywhere pictures are taken, but I’m relieved that I’m not in the Bieb’s target demographic.
