Justin Bieber Takes A Punch For Love In The “As Long As You Love Me” Video

Justin Bieber is campaigning hard for his adult credentials, and he’s roped real-grown man Michael Madsen into this latest effort. The video for Believe‘s second single, “As Long As You Love Me,” features the Resevoir Dogs actor as the enemy, aka the father of Justin’s love-interest (who, unlike videos past, doesn’t look that much like Selena). Madsen suggests that Justin keep a distance from his daughter because, he warns, “I know what type of guy you are, once upon a time I used to be the same thing.” Young still and virile, Justin insists that they are in love and that he doesn’t “know us,” and then he steals her way with all the blinding confidence his proclamations of “as long as you love me” afford.

There are fancy cars and kisses, an empty garage dance sequence and Big Sean in a black leather hoodie. And then, at the end, the return of Madsen, back to teach Beiber a painful lesson. Growing up is tough, and when those bruises fade, Justin — desperate to be rid of his baby face — might just like what he sees. Read more…
