The 'Boyfriend' singer has released a controversial music video for his team-up single with Nicki Minaj.
Justin Bieber enjoys a wild party while filming on a handheld camera in his music video for new single 'Beauty And A Beat'.
The 'Boyfriend' star teamed up with 'Starships' rapper Nicki Minaj for his latest single from third album 'Believe', playing a prank on the world in the process.
In the week leading up to the video's release Justin claimed he had had personal footage stolen from a concert backstage, and then appeared to be being blackmailed by a Twitter user who said they had acquired the footage and would be releasing it to the public.
The video for 'Beauty And A Beat' opens with a written monologue saying: "In October of 2012, three hours of personal footage was stolen from musician Justin Bieber.
"The following footage was illegally uploaded by an anonymous blogger," the message reads, skipping through several home shot videos, before beginning the video with Justin smiling while looking into a handheld camera.
The music video sees Justin taking the camera around a wild pool party filled with girls dancing on a podium, synchronised swimmers and party goers.
Justin then leads the camera up right to the front of a diving platform where Nicki Minaj performs her section of the song, dressed in a bright pink tutu with blonde and pink hair.
'Beauty And A Beat' is the latest single to be released from Justin's 2012 album 'Believe', following the release of 'Boyfriend' and 'As Long As You Love Me' earlier this year.
