Justin Timberlake’s new video is hard to watch. And not in the way that his “What Goes Around” video is hard to watch, although I’m sure many of us found it difficult to watch someone so handsome make out with someone who is not us. But I’m over that.
What I’m not over, PopWatchers, is this “LoveStoned” video. My eyes hurt. There’s so much going on and yet, there’s absolutely nothing going on. All I see are lotsa pieces of Justin Timberlake and computerized argyle! (If JT was vying for geek stripes, I could have told him that his MMC days earned him a lifetime membership.) And when we finally do see JT in his human form, he looks particularly sad. Maybe the object of his affection decided she’s not going home with him tonight. Or maybe he just watched the first part of this video.
Perhaps the only way to enjoy this clip is if you are, in fact, stoned (with, or without, the love). Let me know if I’m wrong, PopWatchers. In the meantime, I’m just going to wear sunglasses in the dark for a few minutes.
