Five Reasons Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" Doesn't Suck
All right, we know what you're thinking.
There's no way you'll ever admit to liking a Justin Bieber song. He's a twerp, a too-eager evil of the YouTube generation. But hear us out.
On his new single, "Boyfriend," from his forthcoming third album, Believe, the Biebz demonstrates a new, ridiculously swagged-out side that's irresistibly catchy and kinda hot.
Or maybe we just find it unendingly amusing to watch him go gangsta.
Either way, here are five reasons Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" doesn't suck.
We Miss the Other Justin Badly
It's been a long, hard six years since Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds' 2006 release, and we've been jonesin' for his falsetto loving. And the Biebz's "Boyfriend" is essentially the next best thing to a fresh and sweaty single from our number one favorite pop-tard turned sexual fantasy. In fact, Bieber is beginning to sound almost exactly like JT, and "Boyfriend" is curiously similar to Timberlake's breakout solo hit, "Girlfriend." Until the elder Justin leaves Hollywood to bless us with another record, we've got Bieber fever.
He's 18 Now and He's Whispering to Us
Until now, Bieber has been nothing to us besides another gooey, overly skinny heartthrob showing too much bony chest in deep V-necks. Oh, he was also pubescent and illegal. But as of March 1, this kid transformed into a piece of meat, and he knows it. That's why he's murmuring to us like the Ying Yang Twins. Except instead of threatening to beat our pussies up, he wants to hold our hand at the movies. One step at a time, but we like where this is going.Next Page
