Nick Demoura, Justin Bieber’s choregrapher and friend, posted the video of Where Are Ü Now choregraphy via his Youtube channel.
Steven Klein, who photographed Justin Bieber for the magazine Interview, talks about the photoshoot.
Using a Polaroid camera from the ’70s, Klein aimed to capture raw and real — aka no re-touching — images of the 21-year-old.
“There was no editing by art directors,” he said, noting that the shoot was “simple, spontaneous and really documenting him in the way he looked [that day]. He came in looking pretty much like that, with that haircut, so there was no manipulation at all.”
“It was kind of trying to make this idea of an intimate look at Justin, instead of this fabricated pop icon’s idea of photographing a celebrity or a pop star,” he added.
“He just came from his acupuncturist, he had a neck injury,” Klein recalled. “At one point, the makeup artist was going to take them down or remove them with makeup, and I just said, ‘Leave them, because I want to reveal the true imperfections and the reality of what he really looked like.'”
The old-school method of capturing and developing each individual photo kept Bieber intrigued, Klein said, and the singer even brought a few ideas of his own to the shoot.
“He wanted to take a picture like he was a photographer, taking a picture of a girl,” Klein recalled of one specific shot. “I like working with people that are creative and have an artistic integrity.”
And while Klein aimed to “remove all the artifice of what people think about [Bieber],” it was the Biebs’ idea to pose in the buff.
“We had probably 20 racks of clothes, and he actually looked at an overview of the clothes and he didn’t even really want to shoot the fashion,” Klein said. “Everything was more like flesh and black and simple.”
But he did make an exception for a few eerie props: a terrifying clown mask with flame-red hair and a lone knife.
“I’ve used a lot of guns as props, so I thought I’d move on to knives,” Klein said with a laugh.
Irene Kim interviewed Justin Bieber for On Style on June 11th during the Calvin Klein Live in Hong Kong. They talked about Justin’s upcoming album and he said Irene was hot – lucky girl!
A few months ago, Jack Ü opened a store where you could draw on captures of Justin Bieber in the clip (read this article). So, this video is so creative, enjoy!
The hashtag “#WhereAreUNowMusicVideo” was even 1st in worldwilde trends!
Some of Justin’s friends tweeted about it:
You can also watch behind the scene:
Remember when Justin Bieber put on a private concert for a very special group of girls? Well we got to spend a little extra time with a couple of his most loyal fans—12-year-old Emma and 16-year-old Ilia—who were able to meet their idol for the first time through the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
After watching the video above, it’s easy to see how strong both girls are. Despite having life-threatening medical conditions, they’re the most positive and brave ladies we’ve met in a while—it’s no wonder Justin says they motivate and encourage him. By the looks of it, the feeling is definitely mutual.
From their tearful reactions to finding out their dream of meeting Justin was finally coming true to their first hug with the superstar, this was an unforgettable day for everyone involved. If you didn’t already love the singer enough before, just wait—that’s about to multiply by 100.

US: What does it feel like to have yourself on billboards all over the place in your underwear?
JB: It’s cool. I get a lot of texts from my friends like making fun of me.
JB: Like taking pictures with it or like pulling up their shirt just messing with me like ‘I see you— you’re too big and buff.’ You know? It’s fun.
US: What do you do to stay in shape? What do you do week to week? Do you have a certain diet?
JB: I’ve been working out recently, but when I was doing a shoot I would spend like two weeks before the shoot just really grinding it, working out everyday, eating healthy. Now I’m kind of like, I gave up a little bit – but not really.
US: What type of style are you into? What would you say your style is these days? What kinds of trends?
JB: Style? I don’t know if I could really describe my style. My style, man. I can’t really describe it. I can just say I’m really into like layering pieces right now. Really drapey sweaters, long stuff. I really like – Jerry Lorenzo’s stuff is awesome with Fear of God. Really like that.
US: What do you like for girls?
JB: I think this season is Saint Laurent is really cool so I like—I like to see girls in that for sure. They’re in like a cowgirl stage right now
JB: Like neutral colors and stuff. It’s really neat.
US: So you’ve mentioned, in a lot of interviews lately, changes in your life. How is that reflected in your work and your music these days?
JB: I don’t know about positive changes. I just mean, I’m a human being. So I’m growing as a man, and you just figure some certain things out that you’re okay with, and what you believe in. I can’t really say that I’ve made any mistakes, but that I’m just human, you know? And I think that that, in general, just growth helps me with my music. Like I put everything in my music, like everything I have, because that’s what I’m made for. I’m super creative, I’m always in the studio. So my growth is definitely a big part of my music, my creativity.
US: That’s great. Are you a basketball fan?
US: I’m a basketball fan. Who are you rooting for?
JB: I have to go with LeBron James on this one. He’s just worked so hard, and he’s doing it with himself at this point. Right.

JB: Not at all! Speaking of style, your style is on point!
JB: Killing it.
