Motorcycles! Lights coming through blinds! The caressing of legs! A model bending over and lounging on things! The licking of lips! Backstreet Boys-style dancing! Ice melting on skin! Pelvic thrusts! Shirtless Bieber! Make-out sessions! With all of these gimics, you’d think that Justin Bieber would have hit the jackpot with his new music video for “All That Matters.” But instead, it’s just a little over three minutes of the singer attempting to convince us that he can be a passionate, intense lover with the help of model Cailin Russo. Oh, and it’s pretty boring.
19-year-old Bieber talked about the song via Twitter saying, “The lyrics of this song are pretty self-explanatory—when you fall in love with someone, that someone can make you feel whole.” He then goes on to say, “The song conveys that being in love is one of the greatest feelings on earth. Love is all that matters. But the void you feel when that love goes away is gut-wrenching.” The song might be about love (and losing love), but if we’re being honest, the only message we’re getting from this music video is that Bieber likes to film himself while he’s macking on a model.
Watch the video in all of its make-out glory below and decide for yourself if this video is actually a comentary on love (or just a chance for Bieber to take off his shirt):
