Justin Bieber loves him some Taylor Swift. Seriously, the boy can’t get enough of T. Swizzle’s music. His latest Tay ‘cover’ is a short yet sweet version of ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ in a new video. Check it out here!
Justin Bieber, 22, has laid down a new cover of a Taylor Swift, 26, song, “I Knew You Were Trouble,” this time on his buddy Martin Garrix’s Snapchat. Why Justin continues to cover Tay songs we aren’t sure, but we definitely hope he never stops. However, this time we are wondering if it may have something to do with a “famous” video released last week… Click here to see the video after the jump!
The clip of Justin recording the song was apparently taken on June 27 before he took the stage for his Nashville stop on the Purpose tour. Is it a coincidence that was the same day of Kanye West’s “Famous” broadcast debut? Hmm… Any how, in the clip Justin sports a palm tree covered shirt while strumming on his acoustic guitar and singing the verse, “‘Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in/So shame on me now/Flew me to places I’d never been.” That was ADORABLE. We want more, Justin!
Hold on, that may have been cute, but we have to ask, why is Justin singing another Taylor song? The “Shake It Off” singer has certainly been making headlines recently. Between Kanye’s controversial music video, in which a naked double of Tay was displayed for all the world to see, and her constant PDA with new beau Tom Hiddleston, 35, she is getting a lot of attention, so perhaps Biebs has noticed. Everyone knows Kanye and Justin are buddies, so is Justin making some sort of statement by singing one of Taylor’s hits? We’re not sure.
This is not the first time Justin has “covered” a Tay original, causing drama on May 23 when he took to Instagram to sing “Teardrops On My Guitar” with a friend. The song is famously about Drew Hardwick, the “Bad Blood” singer’s very first love! Well, what ever Justin is up to it’s nice to hear him cover Tay’s hits — even if it’s only for a few seconds at a time.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Justin was just singing Tay’s song for fun, or was there a secret message behind it?
