The 'Never Say Never' star says starring in his new video has inspired him to do more acting.
Justin Bieber says he wanted to make sure the music video for his new single 'As Long As You Love Me' was edgy enough while still retaining the romantic feel of the love story song.
The 'Boyfriend' star unveiled the short film video for his latest 'Believe' single last week, and says he was keen to include some of the more dramatic sections of the story, which see him acting opposite Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs actor Michael Madsen.
"This video, I wanted it to be a little bit more edgy and have that appeal," Justin revealed to E! Online yesterday (9th August). "But I also wanted it to make sense with the song.
"And I feel kind of like the whole Romeo And Juliet story and how the dad didn't want me to be with the daughter, I just that that was the perfect [match to the song lyrics] 'I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold'.
"I'll do anything for you to be my girl. That's what I wanted the song to be," Justin added.
Justin also teased that working with Hollywood legend Michael Madsen had inspired him to want to continue acting in the future, and the 'Never Say Never' star further teased his long-gestating film project with Mark Wahlberg.
"I hope to do some more acting," Justin confirmed. "I've only done a few things like CSI, but I really want to do some more acting."
"Mark Wahlberg and I have been working on a script for a long time now."
