The Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian Elle Video is for the most part, harmless. There is one part that could border on a “Mrs Robinson” type set up. Kim is in a long open jacket exposing her in a bra and underwear. She also does a semi sexy pose as Justin pretends to snap pictures of her.
At first glance, the Bieber and Kardashian Elle video looks like a friendship, or a school boy type crush going on. After viewing it once again, I can say the the video does push the envelope just a bit. Kim Kardashian has to be one of the most beautiful women in the world. She is not the typical stick figured model found in most cover girls today. She has exotic looks and beautiful curves, making her a desired model for photographs.
The Elle Magazine shoot has Kim and Justin splashing in the warm blue waters of the Bahamas, she is in an evening dress and he is in a shirt and long pants. This playful scene could be a brother and sister at play, with no innuendos here. Even the playful glances of Bieber and Kardashian as she gets her makeup applied is safe.

It starts to get sketchy when Kim comes out in her bra and underwear with an opened jacket covering up nothing and poses with the 16 year old heart throb. The song, which is done by Justin Bieber, even implies a romantic connotation to the video.
The video will not have anyone come out screaming that it is inappropriate, because it is not. There are suggestions made and nothing else. When Kim is standing in front of Bieber as he is laying on a chaise lounge, it could be said she is posing for him, then he grabs the camera and takes her picture.
If you put a man in Bieber’s place, you might say the video had a romantic mystical feeling to it. My original thoughts that it is done in good taste, still stands, but it did just cross over the line in a few shots. Even though Justin Bieber is a world known celebrity that is living the life of a grown up as he travels the world for his concerts, he is still just a 16 year old boy.
Another thought would be to take two strangers of the same age and pose them in this way. The cry might be it is not appropriate posing between the two age groups. The Elle video looks like it is just playing on the already established relationship between Justin Bieber and Kim Kardasian. Bieber has a giant school boy crush on Kim, this is what could make this video, “sweet” appearing. If they just didn’t have Kim pose in her underwear around Justin, it probably would not get any controversial remarks from the viewers.
