Hey M Girls!
Now that Justin Bieber is growing up, he's been getting lots of comparisons to another very famous Justin -- ex-N'Sync member, Justin Timberlake!
Popular celeb GF? Check! New hip-hop sound? Check! Tons of swag? Check! That's why, when JB's "Boyfriend" single and video came out, we couldn't help but compare it to N'Sync's "Girlfriend". And here's why...
1. Let's start with the lyrics:
JB: "If I was your boyfriend, I'd never let you go..."
N'Sync: "'If you were my girlfriend, I'd be your shining star..."
...Hm, they're both dreaming about what would happen IF they started a BF/GF relaysh!
2. Both songs have super-catchy hip-hop beats, but still have that gorge "falsetto" that JB talks about in the tune.
3. OK, let's look at the vids themselves! An afternoon hanging out in a parking lot, dancing with lots of ladies? Yup, that happens in both vids.
Watch the videos for yourself and decide:
Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend"
So, was JB inspired by JT's band? Well, we have the answer from Justin Bieber himself. In a recent interview he spilled about the "Girlfriend" vid, saying: "I haven't seen it." But, he went on to admit that he def looks up to Mr. Timberlake. He said, "He was really amazing and had such amazing music. I can't say that I would be upset when someone compares me to him." Hmm, interesting!
