Two surprises in one night! Not only did Justin Bieber take over Drake’s parts in the ‘POPSTAR’ music video with DJ Khaled, he also didn’t stop lip syncing when Drake’s line about Selena Gomez came on.
It was already a surprise when Drake pushed the boundaries and name-dropped exes Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez during his verse on DJ Khaled’s song, “POPSTAR,” in July of 2020. So, imagine our surprise when not only did Justin take over Drake’s parts in the music video — which was released on Sept. 3 — but he also was a good sport and mouthed along to Selena’s name in the video!
Before we get to that point, the video starts off with Drake being bombarded with videos from DJ Khaled, who is pleading with the Toronto rapper to make a video for their “Popstar” collab. So, driven to desperate measures, Drake calls in a “favor”: AKA, having Justin pretend to be him.
The music video begins, and we see our “Popstar,” Justin, indulging in his worst pop star behavior as he parties with gorgeous models in his Beverly Hills mansion (yes, the one he shares with wife Hailey Baldwin). Scooter Braun even makes a cameo, thanks to this cheeky line from Drake: “I’m a popstar, but this s–t ain’t bubblegum, yeah/ You would probably think my manager is Scooter Braun, yea.” As he lip syncs away to Drake’s lines, we start sweating as he approaches this one: “Look, Ariana, Selena, my Visa.”
Of course, this is a reference to none another than Ariana Grande and Selena. Staying faithful to the job he came to do, Justin fully lip syncs his ex-girlfriend’s name! Even more awkward is the fact that by the end of the video, it’s revealed that this music video was just a bad dream as Justin awakens in bed next to his wife, Hailey. “You okay?,” Hailey asks, to which Justin said, “Yeah I’m good, I had a crazy dream. Drake asked me to be in a video, but he wasn’t in the video…I love you baby.” Even if Justin says Selena’s name in a video, we know where his heart truly belongs!
