Justin Bieber Does a Miley Cyrus, Takes off His Shirt And Raps on 'Lolly' With Juicy J and Meajor Ali [VIDEO and PHOTOS]
Justin Bieber is going Miley Cyrus' way now. The teen pop sensation took off his shirt and has tried his hands at rapping in Maejor Ali's recent track "Lolly." The singer has also gone one step ahead and chosen an alter ego for himself and name it Shawty Mane.
The video was released on Tuesday, and is shot in all neon colours of green, orange, yellow and more. It stars with rappers Maejor Ali and Juicy J rapping to some catchy tunes and back-up dancers dancing. Justin Bieber appears after sometime wearing gold chair, white vest, neon coloured shoes and his golden hair puffed up. He tries hard to look like a rapper.
"Fifty for the necklace, look down at my set list/Got your girlfriend at your crib watching Netflix," Justin raps as next shot shows the 19-year-old take off his shirt and give the audience full picture of his tattoos.

The rapper Justin then moves and groves to the hip hop style with two other rappers as they dance one by one. Though the song is available on YouTube since February, it was only released on iTunes on Tuesday - the same day the video came out.
Looks like Bielebers (a term used for Justin's fans) liked Justin Beiber's hearty attempt at rapping as the tune has quickly climbed into the Top 10 in iTunes. Bieber and the group dance along a colourful dark backdrop, aside from some licking of actual lollypops. The pop star doesn't embarrass himself as a rapper alongside professionals like Juicy J and Maejor Ali.
We could not help but notice few similarities between Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber as Justin is making desperate attempts to prove to the audience that he is a man now and no more should be referred to as the one with boyish grin and baby face. He wants people to forget about "Baby Baby" and think of him as a man, who can impress girls by taking off his shirt and rapping to some cool lines.
Miley Cyrus, who has also released a rap song "23" with Mike Will and Wiz Khalifa too is trying to tell her audience that she is now a different person and never shies away from taking her clothes off and dancing provocatively.
Rapper Juicy J is also on the new Katy Perry single, "Dark Horse."
