Justin Bieber released a video for an acoustic performance of “What Do You Mean?” There are scenes of Justin sitting and singing alongside a guitarist spliced with scenes of Justin jumping into a lake, skateboarding in New York before his Tonight Show appearance, and walking the red carpet at this years MTV Video Music Awards.
The acoustic version has a cool vibe and I’m usually all about acoustic versions, but I feel like the original version is superior. It’s just a good song to wiggle your shoulders to at a red light, in traffic.
Justin’s style is adorable this era, know what I mean?
All kidding aside, Justin’s outfit and performance of “What Do You Mean?” was pretty cool. He was into it, did a little slide of foot action to get the girls and gays screaming, and his vocals were smooth. This performance was far better than the one he did on the MTV Video Music Awards.
The Tonight Show performance was subdued, but cool at the same time. The Roots always kill it when they perform with guest artists.
During the interview session, Justin also explains why he got so emotional after his VMA performance. A mixture of wanting to be accepted by the public again, missing a few cues during the performance, and being back on stage performing made Justin shed a few tears.
I was just reading some of the YouTube comments about his video and people were saying he needs help with his hair. I really like Justin’s hair like this. His style in general has been on point this year.
The video has me thinking, “Are you fucking kidding?” because it just seemed like a lame concept when they both get kidnapped. Then, when its revealed its all a plan to get the girl an underground skate party, I thought, “Okay Justin, I see you. You’re into kidnapping and making girls piss their thongs so you can ‘swoop’ them off their feet. Nice.” I’m kidding, but not really.
Justin’s nipples are also not very centered. Nothing wrong with it, just haven’t seen nips like that before. I’m one to talk though, mine look like Hershey Kisses. All pointy.
After a thirty day, star-studded, social media promo campaign, Justin Bieber unleashes both the song and lyric video for his new single, “What Do You Mean?”
“What Do You Mean?” marks Bieber’s second single of the year, the first being the summer smash, “Where Are You Now?”with Jack Ü. “What Do You Mean?” follows a similar sonic pattern as “Where Are You Now?” so we get a vibe for what Justin’s forthcoming album will sound like.
I like the song. It’s not as infectious as “Where Are You Now?” but I thought the same thing about “Where Are You Now?” before I got obsessed with it.
The lyric video features Ryan Sheckler and Chelsea Castro skateboarding through what looks like Los Angeles. At the end of the video, Justin is shirtless and looking beefy. There’s also a point where I thought Justin and Ryan were going to kiss because their faces are really close together, they don’t, but, totally worth it.
