Justin Bieber makes waterparks look like the coolest place to hang out at night — are waterparks even open at night? — in the just-released clip for “Beauty and a Beat.” Oh, and he gets a helping hand from Nicki Minaj, too, who looks like she’s wearing two pink Hostess Sno Balls on her chest. Take a look:
Best part of the video is when Biebs is “grinding” against Minaj, you can practically count the number of inches the Biebs was contractually ordered to stay away from her. Who is the high-paid lawyer who hammered out that deal?
The clip is set up early on as a piece of “stolen” footage, linking back to stories this week that Bieber’s laptop was stolen. (Whoops to news outlets that reported the ruse as actual news.) But it doesn’t need the pointless setup: The fun, colorful video stands on its own. One gripe: Why wasn’t it released back in summertime when we could actually go to a waterpark and hang out?
