As you may or may not know, Justin Bieber has a new song with Nicki Minaj called “Beauty and the Beat” and it’s actually one of my favorite songs on his new ‘Believe’ album. Well, today I came across this new parody that took the concept of the title, and focussed on a scene from the classic tale of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ to create one of the best parodies I’ve seen all year.
In this modern take on the fairy tale, Belle is in the hood and the people are not the same characters you remember from the original – Gaston is far more gangsta. One of my favorite parts was when Belle looks through a tabloid mag with a guy and she sings, “Ohhhhh, isn’t this a hot mess / Who would name their first born Blue Ivyyyy / Heeeere’s Kim Kardash & Kanye / Wonder If they’ll have a brand new show on BET”. LOL.
Seriously, this is amazing and you have to watch it. The video is by Todick Hall and also features YouTube stars Antoine Dodson and Glozell. Check it out below!
