Whisper it quietly, but the new Justin Bieber song is quite good

Just close your eyes and pretend its Justin Timberlake.

Justin Bieber - Boyfriend

But let's make a few things clear.

1) It sounds like Justin Timberlake because it steals the chorus to N'Sync's Girlfriend.

2) The song is getting a lot of praise thanks to the phenomenon of lowered expectations.

3) At some point the video is going to come out and Justin Bieber will still irritate the eyes right out of your face. He will wear the same smug smug smug smug smug spoiled brat smile he always does, and do that faux-sincere "I wub you" look at the camera. You know, the one he thinks is sexy but actually makes him look simple.

Nonetheless, a good song is a good song and we are all going to have to accept that we now live in a world where Justin Bieber has recorded a good song. A song that survives the couplet: "Swag swag swag, on you / Chillin by the fire why we eatin’ fondue". A song that he will undoubtedly claim "proves the haters wrong". A song that will inflate his already monstrous ego to the point where he will make Uday Hussein look like the very model of humility and restraint.

Let's just hope that, like Miley Cyrus's Party In The USA, it is a total fluke.
