Justin Bieber should think about stepping up those private boxing lessons with Mike Tyson, if this sneak peek at his upcoming music video “As Long As You Love Me” is any indication of his defense skills. The video’s director, Anthony Mandler, uploaded a twitpic of a bruised-and-bloody Bieber on set of his video, echoing the look of his recent photo shoot for Complex. ”It’s a story of love…. #believe,” he wrote. Does this story also include a trip to the hospital for stitches?
Besides being a mini-movie with an appearance by Big Sean, little else is known about the video, though Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun hinted that things turn around for the beat-up pop star: “I promise on everything that every guy on the planet wishes they were Justin Bieber in this music video right now,” he recently tweeted. We couldn’t be more excited to find out how that’s remotely possible.
