Justin Bieber Takes Credit For Mike Posner’s Song ‘Boyfriend’
JC - "What's the line there? If I was your boyfriend..."
J - "I'd never let you go, I can take you places you ain't never been before. Baby take a chance or you'll never ever know. I got money in my hands that I'd really like to blow."
JC - " That I get, carry on."
JC & J - "Swag, Swag, Swag, Swag"
J - "Chillin' by the fire while we eating fondue..."
JC - "Now that line where...I don't under. Fondue is not a good date food."
J - "Yea it is."
JC - No it's not! You end up with cheese dripping down your face."
J - "I don't know what kind of fondue you have, but in America we have this thing called chocolate fondue."
JC - "Right."
J - "Where you put, dip...strawberries in it and eat it.
JC - "Yea, I get that."
J - "Why isn't that a good thing?"
JC - "I think you put fondue in there just cause it rhymes with whatever..."
J - "Yea, yea, right. It just sounded good."
To me it sounds like Justin took total credit for writing the song 'Boyfriend'. What are your thoughts?
Well, Mike Posner did not directly respond to the video but was recently featured in an article from Teenvogue.com that reported on an interview he did with Jimmy Fallon were Mike said that he and Justin Co-wrote the song. Essentially, Mike wrote the song and Justin gave it the sexy vibe.
"Of course, anyone knows that even the best work needs rewriting. And would the song be as catchy if it didn't feature Justin's sing-whispering about being your (yes, your) boyfriend? No, it would not. ...okay, it probably would be, because that beat is good, but the lyrics are among the best parts of that song."
So maybe Justin was not lying so to speak, just expanding on the truth. Either way, I find it interesting that Justin took all the credit rather then just some. Heck, he could of sided with James and said, "Hey, I didn't write the song, maybe fondue isn't a great date food." But then, what fun would that have been?
Don't forget to get your tickets to see Mike Psoner, May 3rd, at the Kalamazoo State Theatre.
