Justin Bieber leaves behind his "Baby" days and shows some growing up in the music video of "As Long as You Love Me". The 18-year-old singer rolls around in bed with his on-screen girlfriend and takes beatings from her overprotective father.
Directed by Anthony Mandler, the video begins with a minute full of scene between Bieber and "Kill Bill" actor Michael Madsen who plays the girl's father. "Listen kid, my daughter is everything. She needs me as much as I need her, that means some day I have to let her go and when I do she needs to be with a man not a boy, but you are," Madsen tells Bieber who then replies, "I love her."
Madsen says, "Yeah I'm sure you do. I know what type of guy you are. Once upon a time I used to be the same thing, you know what that means? That means one day you'll leave her for somebody else and break her heart and that can't happen." Bieber insists, "You don't know us."
Before leaving, Madsen issues a warning to Bieber, saying "I don't want to. I don't wanna know you. I want you to get in your car and leave and don't come back 'cause if you do, it's not gonna be good for you."
Bieber then meets his girlfriend secretly and they run away before the father catches up with them. Madsen beats Bieber until bruised and bloodied and drags his daughter away from him, leaving a sad ending. Somewhere in the middle of the video, Big Sean makes a cameo as he spits his version.
