Prepare To Be Bowled Over By Justin Bieber’s “Baby” Video
Justin Bieber fans, the wait is over. The Canadian tweenthrob’s video for “Baby” has finally arrived in all of its hormonally-charged glory. A love story set in a bowling alley! Michael Jackson-esque flourishes! A cameo by Drake! LUDACRIS! Goodness, can one music video possibly contain this much awesomeness? Head below, Bieber Nation, and find out.
We actually feel sorry for budding actress/singer Jasmine Villegas, who plays the object of the Bieb’s affection in “Baby.” After getting so intimate with the hot-roddin’ pop munchkin here, she probably didn’t realize she was signing herself up for the fan-forum wrath of a million jealous Biebettes.
“We’re kind of going off of [‘The Way You Make Me Feel’] video by Michael Jackson, where I’m following her around and trying to get the girl,” said Beiber in a recent making-of interview. “I’m chasing her and she’s really, like, not interested.”
Poor guy. He’s suffered the sting of rejection on more than one occasion.
There’s also a hint of “Beat It” in the “Baby” video. But as for the straight up horny teen motif—well, that’s simply pure Bieber.
