Justin Timberlake

In shedding the boy band label, Justin seems to be toying with the line between edgy sex and violent abuse - fine line that it is...

SexyBack video with a mutual espionage and a fairly forceful sexual encounter. I can't quite put my finger on what exactly makes me uncomfortable, but the stalking (on both parts) and borderline violent sexual encounter just don't sit right)

In What Goes Around Justin makes a shortfilm style video in which he and Scarlett Johansson are a new couple. Take note of the gender roles, expressions of dominance, violence, and sense of justification when she dies in a fiery car crash after kissing another guy.
