Justin Bieber Gives Himself a Makeover and Makes Out With Britney Spears (Sort of)

Justin Bieber Goofs with Place Settings at VMAsJustin Bieber posted two videos to his Twitter account today that show him goofing around before tonight’s 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. In both clips, Justin is seen drawing on his own seat placeholder’s picture and having pretend conversations with other celebrities’ pictures.

At the end of the first video, Justin gets extra friendly with Britney Spears’ picture saying, “It’s just like that look that you give me, I want you to feel what I feel.” He then gives the placeholder photo of the pop diva an upside down “Spiderman kiss” in the second clip.

Even when Justin’s only trying to be playful, he can still sometimes come off as a little creepy …

Justin Bieber Shows Artists a New Way to Reach No. 1 on iTunes: Meet the 30 Day Social Media Tease . . .

Justin Bieber What Do You Mean!Yesterday, Justin Bieber released his latest single “What Do You Mean?”. The song reached number one on iTunes faster than other song ever, reportedly beating the previous fastest number one debut, One Direction’s “Drag Me Down,” by 5 minutes.

Many critics have given the track positive reviews, but to dominate iTunes downloads, Justin and his manager Scooter Braun experimented with a social media strategy that involved having celebs with high social media followings tease the release with Instagram and Twitter posts in the form of a count-down each day for an entire month prior to the single’s release.

The other celebs got the benefit of Justin re-posting their images to his own huge social following. But their participation gave him fresh image content and the network benefit of his message reaching the followers of so many other celebs.

Given how successful Justin’s campaign has turned out to be, the long social media tease is pattern that we think we’ll see tried by other artists. Even Demi Lovato’s recent mini-marketing campaign of having her friends tweet out each of the tracks of her new “Confident” album throughout the course of a single day seems like it might have been influenced by Justin’s experimental teaser campaign.

We’ve collected together all of the main celebrity posts that Justin used to help promote “What Do You Mean?”. You can check them out in the gallery below.

What do you think of Justin’s teaser campaign? Do you think it will work for other artist’s projects, or quickly become tired and annoying?

Justin Bieber Releases Teaser for the Music Video to “What Do You Mean?”

JustinBieberVideoJustin Bieber loves to tease his fans. The “What Do You Mean?” singer posted a mini trailer for his single’s upcoming music video to his Instagram today. In the post’s caption, Justin revealed that the music video will premiere on Vevo after the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday at 11pm EST .

The video clip, which also features veteran actor John Leguizamo, has been filmed to look like a big budget action movie, packed with fight and sex scenes. And those sex scenes are between Justin and perhaps his new leading lady both on and off the screen, Xenia Deli.

Did Justin Bieber Just Start Gushing About Model Xenia Deli?

XeniaDeliBieberJustin Bieber visited Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning to talk all about his new single “What Do You Mean?” Though he admitted being a little nervous about performing at the VMAs on Sunday, Justin seemed generally pretty comfortable talking up the new single. That is, until he seemed to get a little flustered when talking about the model in his new song’s upcoming music video.

Ryan showed Justin some pictures of the former Victoria’s Secret model Xenia Deli and asked what her name was. When Justin answered he seemed at first a little distracted and then immediately praised Xenia.

“She is so beautiful … but she’s such a sweetheart, she’s easy to be around,” the 21 year-old singer gushed.

Justin couldn’t seem to keep his eyes off of the picture and later joked to Ryan to throw the picture of the model away.

Maybe there’s more to Justin’s reaction than a little momentary distraction? The Daily Mail reported that Justin and Xenia were spotted holding hands and enjoying a night out together at a piano bar in Los Angeles last weekend. The two were seen sitting at a piano bench while Justin played a few songs for Xenia and a small crowd.

Below, we have a portion of the Ryan Seacrest interview, as well as some brief fan-filmed clips of Justin and Xenia together.

Do you think Justin and Xenia might be an item?
