Justin Bieber's [article id="1684156"]"Boyfriend" video[/article], premiering Thursday on "MTV First," is going to have to be pretty over-the-top to compete with Bieber's real-life boyfriend skills.
After all, he has a [article id="1682957"]stringent set of rules[/article] when it comes to being the perfect boyfriend to fellow superstar Selena Gomez. During their year-plus relationship, Justin has swept Selena off her feet with some pretty elaborate dates.
In anticipation of Thursday's "Boyfriend" premiere, MTV News is rounding up the five best dates Bieber has taken Selena on. In the words of Bieber, #leggo!
In January 2011, the couple were snapped on [article id="1655145"]vacation in St. Lucia[/article]. The vacation was headline-making simply because it was the first major sighting of the couple being romantic. Although they had been rumored to be dating weeks before, the paparazzi shots confirmed to the world that Jelena were alive and well.
In February of that year, the couple were shy no more about their relationship. They graced the [article id="1658832"]Vanity Fair Oscar party[/article] that year together, walking the carpet arm-in-arm with big smiles.
Later in the year at the [article id="1669881"]VMAs[/article], while Gomez was on hand helping MTV News out as the pre-show co-host, Bieber surprised his lady love with a very public kiss on the cheek and his pet snake, Johnson.
What better way to [article id="1671462"]watch "Titanic"[/article] than by renting out the entire Staples Center in Los Angeles? After checking out Demi Lovato's show at the Nokia Theatre in September 2011, he went right across the street with Gomez to watch the flick in private.
The private Staples screening must have worked, because weeks later, Bieber rented out a theater in Canada to [article id="1672989"]check out the less-romantic "Real Steel."[/article]
Earlier this month, when the young couple hit up a Lakers game at the Staples Center, they were caught kissing on the famous Kiss Cam. Can you remember who won the game between the Lakers and San Antonio Spurs? Nope, because the couple's PDA made more headlines.
Not enough Bieber for you? Well, the singer will sit down with MTV News' Sway Calloway on Thursday to premiere his "Boyfriend" music video during "MTV First: Justin Bieber" live at 7:50 p.m. ET on MTV.
