Justin Bieber and the Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Earlier this month we caught up with Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls backstage at the infamous Victoria’s Secret fashion show, but apparently there were some other shenanigans going down behind-the-scenes that we didn’t know about! This week, Victoria’s Secret released some stolen “personal footage” of Justin Bieber (who performed at the show) and the models, which was uploaded by “anonymous bloggers.” Then, the video cuts Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima prepping backstage for (what looks like) a video shoot. Justin Bieber counts “1, 2, 3!” as his “Beauty and the Beat” single starts. Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel catwalk to the beat and as the camera begins to follow them, it alllll starts to make sense. This is another take on his original “Beauty and a Beat” video with Nicki Minaj in which he holds his own camera throughout the majority of the song to make it feel like unreleased personal footage. Niiiiceee.
The camera takes us on a journey through the backstage prop area, onstage during sound-check, and even to a (kind of awkward?) green screen dance sesh. Our favorite part, though, is when the models take the camera into their own hands and do some serious hair-whipping. Overall, it’s a fun look at what happens backstage at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show set to one of THE most catchy songs as of late. (Honestly, though, this song will be in our heads all day now. Theeenks, JB.) The full VS show, which includes performances by Rihanna and Bruno Mars, airs Tuesday, Dec. 4, 10/9c on CBS, but until then, be sure to check out the “Beauty and a Beat” lip sync video below!
