Beauty & a PRANK: Justin Bieber Gets Last Laugh

October 12, 2012

You may have recently heard that Justin Bieber had some personal items stolen from backstage while he was performing in Tacoma, Washington. The mystery thief created a Twitter under the name @gexwy and began releasing a few of the “stolen” footage through a youtube account. This in turn caused a massive freak-out from the Beliebers, as Justin’s fans are known as, and news sites from all over picked up the story.

What we all did not know was that behind the Twitter account was none other than Bieber and his camp. I know, a little confused right?

“Since i was 14 i have had a lot of things said about me, from dying, to taking hormones, to dying again, to stuff about my family…,” Bieber tweeted, “to saying i had a baby with a woman i never even met. nude pics, drugs, my family, my character…but today…today i get to be in on it…” Bieber followed those tweets with links of the “Beauty And A Beat” music video featuring Nicki Minaj.

So yes, we were all pranked, and this time, Bieber got the last laugh.

On a different note, the “Beauty And A Beat” music video took a different approach than most others. The beginning starts off with the “stolen” footage, then continues with Bieber as he walks around a water park holding the camera that is taping the music video. “Beauty And A Beat” was in fact written, directed, and shot by the young Canadian artist.

During the beat breakdown, Bieber hands away the camera and dances a choreographed set in very shallow water. The video proceeds with shots of Bieber in the pool, underwater, and on a black platform being kept in the pool. Nicki Minaj appears, sporting a pink tutu and leopard print tights.

Overall, this was a VERY creative way to introduce a new video and it sure lived up to the hype! What do you think about the video? Watch it below!
