Justin Bieber reveals his inner sexy in new 'Boyfriend' video

May 03, 2012|By Christie D'Zurilla

If Justin Bieber were your boyfriend, you'd live in a world full of hot girls, retro-cool cars and one now-legal teen idol playing guitar, campfire-style. And even though he's not really your boyfriend -- ours either, sad to say -- Bieber's new "Boyfriend" video is happy to let you enjoy that swag vicariously.

Warning: It looks as if turning 18 has freed up Mr. Bieber's inner sexy.

Of course, it's all relative -- he hasn't exactly drifted in to D'Angelo territory. And it might just be us, 'cause we're sitting here thinking that even his silly fondue line seems a little tastier with the video playing.

The video, released Thursday, illuminates the Bieb's first track from his upcoming album, "Believe," due out June 19. Expect the release to include a tune he's referred to as "my kinda 'Billy Jean.'" Yep, he's penned a song about Mariah Yeater, the woman who claimed the pop star was the father of her baby, conceived backstage at a show in L.A.
