Justin Bieber does something other than get arrested: watch his video for 'Confident' featuring Chance The Rapper
The pop star and his ‘people’ made sure they threw fans a musical tit-bit before he handed himself in at a Toronto police station
Thursday 30 January 2014
It’s a rare moment when Justin Bieber hits the headlines other than for being arrested.
So enjoy it while it lasts. If, you know, it’s possible to consider anything Bieber-related ‘enjoyable’ as such.
But the pop star and his ‘people’ made sure they threw fans a musical tit-bit before he handed himself in at a Toronto police station to face charges of allegedly assaulting a limo driver – his new video for “Confident” which features Chance The Rapper.
The answer, it seems, as to what he gets up to when he’s not (allegedly) drag racing, (allegedly) visiting brothels and (allegedly) punching people the face is this: he follows girls in ludicrously tight clothing through dimly lit convenience stores and then fails to get their phone numbers after the poorest attempt at a chat up line – a crisp-based chat up line at that – we’ve ever heard.
But the apple of Bieber’s eyes can’t resist his egg-throwing, saggy-panted charms for long, and after a few dance routines and a sweaty party in a car park somewhere, she finally concedes and gives him a smooch.
As for the song? We hate ourselves for admitting that we actually kind of like it, for all the twangy-hooked, early 2000s nostalgia it brings us. So, you know. We won’t. It’s rubbish. Judge for yourselves below. He’ll be sitting in a cell somewhere (probably) counting his millions of YouTube views regardless.
