Justin Bieber has revealed that his new video was inspired by Michael Jackson.
The Canadian popstar unveiled the promo clip for his track 'As Long As You Love Me' yesterday (August 1).

The clip sees Bieber warned off a love interest by her father Madsen before getting beaten up by the angry patriarch.
Speaking on his Twitter account, Bieber said that he took influence from King of Pop Michael Jackson, who he said "told stories" through his videos. He said:
"MJ told stories with his videos. I wanted to tell a story. feel like a movie. #AsLongAsYouLoveMe."
