  • - That's Oscar-worthy.

  • - There's so much going on in this video

  • that I don't even know what was happening.

  • - You don't understand how long I've been waiting for this to happen.

  • I've been waiting that one day I walk in

  • and you guys are gonna show me Justin

  • Oh my god!

  • ♪ (punk rock music) ♪

  • - (Finebros) So first off, do you like this song?

  • - Yeah!

  • - Yes.

  • - It's actually pretty good. (laughs)

  • - I love this song to be honest.

  • - At first, it was a pretty good song until it got over-played.

  • - A million times yes.

  • I'm still salty that all my friends that hated Justin before like him now.

  • - (Finebros) There's been a lot of people who have hated Bieber's music

  • in the past, but now are upset because they actually like his music now.

  • - That's kind of mean.

  • Yeah, this album was pretty good.

  • - I know! I hate that I have to justify myself for him.

  • - My guy friends too especially.

  • They're like, "Oh god! I hate Justin Bieber,

  • but this music is amazing!"

  • - The songs before weren't necessarily for everyone.

  • It was like for a little ten year old girl.

  • It's like the evolution of Bieber.

  • He's just getting better and better.

  • - (Finebros) Were you ever a Justin Beiber fan?

  • - I've been a Justin Bieber fan since 2009.

  • - I didn't really listen to that type of music.

  • - I'm not a fan of him as a person, but I like his songs.

  • - Nah, honestly, never.

  • My sister is a huge Belieber.

  • "(as sister) Now you like him 'cause blah, blah, blah."

  • I'm like, "Yo, that's not my fault.

  • I might have hated spaghetti yesterday,

  • but now they put some good sauce on top of it

  • now I like it."

  • - (Finebros) Okay, so let's talk about the music video.

  • In your opinion, what perception does Justin Bieber give off

  • about himself making a music video like this?

  • - Does there have to be a perception?

  • It just looked like a normal music video to me.

  • - Like he's trying to be a mysterious romantic?

  • - Sexy. He wanted to be very sexy.

  • - I think it's the whole, like, "I'm totally older now.

  • I'm having so much sex."

  • - His demographics are getting older, so he's trying to show,

  • "Okay, look, I'm growing too, so there's a new page to my music."

  • - (Finebros) So Bieber's had a lot of controversy over time.

  • He's had a lot of run-ins with the law.

  • Do you remember, when those things were happening,

  • how you felt about him at that time?

  • - I just thought he was a douche.

  • - I was just like, "You idiot. Why are you doing this to yourself?"

  • - I kind of expected it 'cause I feel like a lot of people

  • who are child stars just end up taking bad words a lot of the time.

  • - Miley Cyrus, Shia LaBeouf, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes--

  • they all started, like, really good kids,

  • so I wasn't really surprised that he turned out the way he did.

  • - He's kind of being stupid right now

  • but with that much money and that much fame,

  • sometimes [bleep] gonna get to your head.

  • He's being a teenager.

  • - I still liked him.

  • It's okay to admit it.

  • Like, you're not a bad fan saying what he did was wrong.

  • But you have to forgive people.

  • - It's so hard to have an opinion about famous people.

  • I don't know who Justin Bieber is as a person.

  • I don't know anything about him.

  • I know what I've been told about him

  • and I don't like to judge people that I've never met before,

  • even if it's my friend being like, "Yeah, that guy was a jerk when I met him."

  • I didn't meet him, so I don't know.

  • - (Finebros) So in the past year, Bieber has made statements

  • regarding his past behavior and wanting to change

  • and even doing things like being the subject of a roast

  • on Comedy Central.

  • What do you think about that?

  • - I think that that was actually pretty good.

  • That's mature of him.

  • - He's making plays, making big moves.

  • He asked Madden.

  • - I think, artistically speaking, he's changed.

  • I think, as a person, we'll have to wait and see.

  • - That's a good thing to do

  • but he has to hold up to that.

  • If he doesn't hold up to that then there's no point.

  • - I don't think people ever really change.

  • I think that it's just a ploy from his manager

  • or he thought of it himself to get himself more popular.

  • - Some people might say, "Oh, it's just a publicity stunt

  • to get his PR, his whole image better."

  • But there has to be some truth behind it.

  • If you're gonna actually put yourself out there

  • and do admit that you're wrong to stuff, it says a lot about you.

  • - (Finebros) And that is a thing across a lot of music

  • and celebrity culture; they can do really bad things

  • yet people will still listen to their music

  • and fans will still defend them.

  • Why do you think that is?

  • - Well, that's called worshipping people. (laughs)

  • - It's an addiction and I think, at the other end,

  • it's like you're almost blinded.

  • - It's kind of dumb because even though you love this person so much,

  • you don't know them and you can't support their behavior

  • 'cause then they're gonna think they're not doing anything wrong.

  • - If you can see potential in someone

  • and you know they can change and grow

  • then you're just like, "Well, I'm gonna stick around

  • because I know this person's gonna get better."

  • - I think there's some die-hard fans of people

  • who remember what they were like when they were young

  • and they want them to stay that person

  • and it's so hard and such a drastic change

  • to see them become this different person

  • that you can't really get behind and you just have this

  • almost naive sense of deniability

  • that it's still this little 12-year-old inside.

  • "No, he's just going through a phase. He'll be better."

  • - (Finebros) On the flip side, is it fair for these artists

  • to have all this public spotlight on them,

  • that we're judging them so much when in a lot ways

  • society is creating this? - Yeah, that's true

  • because most of the time the media over-exaggerates

  • what the musical artists or famous person in general does.

  • - Just because he's famous doesn't mean he's on some pedestal

  • and should be perfect.

  • He's still gonna make mistakes.

  • He's 17 and he egged someone's house.

  • I'm pretty sure that's in shows all the time

  • or I'm pretty sure you've thought about doing that once or twice.

  • - You have to remember they are actually people

  • because-- but it also is a responsibility

  • for them being in the spotlight, to make good decisions

  • and be role models.

  • - Because he's Justin Bieber, because they are a celebrity,

  • we make it so much bigger than it has to be.

  • The only things we should ever be focusing on

  • when it comes to celebrities like that

  • is either their music or when they do something really bad

  • that we should be focusing on.

  • - (Finebros) So back to this song,

  • this was number one on the Billboard Hot 100,

  • which is the very first time Bieber's had a number one hit.

  • - Ever?

  • - Really?

  • All these years and he's been so famous

  • and he's never had a number one?

  • - Oh my god!

  • We were at the top, and then we went to the bottom,

  • but now we're back at the top so shout out to Scooter.

  • - (Finebros) I love that you always use the "we".

  • - Because it's "we"! This is a "we" thing!

  • Beliebers are family. We're in this together.

  • He always says, "OUR album."

  • So if it's our album, everything he owns is mine too.

  • - (Finebros) Finally, with his new album about to come out,

  • do you plan to get it? - I probably will.

  • - Mm, no.

  • - I'm not gonna pay to listen to Justin Bieber.

  • - No, I never buy albums.

  • - I'll probably stream it on Spotify.

  • - Pirate Bay, here I come. (laughs)

  • - iTunes $12.99, let's go. I never drop money.

  • - The only money I've ever spent is on the weekend,

  • and you know what, now it's gonna be Bieber.

  • - Yes, it's already pre-ordered.

  • Do you know how long we have been waiting?

  • This album is going to be a top-selling album

  • and we're finally going to get a Grammy.

  • I have nothing else to say. (Finebros chuckles)

  • I just love him
