Justin Bieber to Perform on Victoria's Secret Show
Men and women alike look forward to the yearly Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Scantily clad women “showcase” lingerie that many fuller figured women could never wear while famous musicians perform live on stage. It’s usually a mature type of thing. One year, Justin Timberlake performed “Sexyback” which worked really well since it not only went along with the theme but demonstrated his mass amounts of swag.
This year, the performers are Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. Let’s break this down on a per-artist basis, shall we?
Rihanna is the queen of hotness with songs like “S&M” and “Birthday Cake” on her repertoire. She, herself, could model some of the items and pull it off quite well and, of course, she’s a major star. Sound choice, right?
Next there’s Bruno Mars. His song “Just The Way You Are” had lyrics that would lead some people to label this track a “panty dropper” so, again, having him as part of the show makes perfect sense.
Then there’s Bieber. Barely legal Bieber. Whose popularity cannot be denied but neither can his tiny boy-like frame. Is he trying to appeal to an older demographic? Will his legions of teen fans be watching the Victoria’s Secret show?
Maybe that’s the point. Perhaps, the lingerie giant wants to attract a younger audience to sell their product. That’s the only thing that makes sense, especially when considering the talent they invited last year which included Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Catch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on December 4, 2012 at 10pm ET on CBS.
