Bieber performed "Boyfriend" on Germany's Next Top Model Thursday night, continuing the laser, hands-free mike and dice roll trend, as well as getting his catwalk game on.
HOT AND SWEATY HEIDI
After a long day of traveling, Bieber's appearance on the German reality show had host Heidi Klum beside herself.
Don't be embarrassed @heidiklum - you make me nervous and sweaty too ;)

It's not cool to blow up the spot of the newly single, Bieb. Not. Cool.
THE SELENA SONG?
Upcoming Believe track "Beauty and the Beat," featuring Nicki Minaj, is already being cited as one of the album's best. But it also has the potential to become the source of gossip, with early listens claiming that Minaj drops a Selena reference following The Bieb's lyrical flirtation ("Gotta keep my eye out for Selena"). A song mention is one thing, but just remember the sad history of significant others in music videos.
ADD HIT-BOY TO THE LIST OF BIEBER'S MANY CONNECTIONS
"I got a Justin Bieber and Drake collab on Justin Bieber’s new album. My boy hooked me up with Bieber close to two years ago, and we just connected," the producer turned rapper told XXL. The list of Bieber friends we'd love to hang out with grows longer by the day.
KEEP YOUR iTUNES ON STAND-BY
If you haven't committed the lyrics of "All Around the World" to memory yet, you better hurry. Fourth Believe track, "As Long As You Love Me," hits iTunes on Tuesday.
Full day in Berlin Germany! #4Days to #AsLongAsYouLoveMe on ITUNES and #11Days until #BELIEVE is out WORLDWIDE! COUNTDOWN!
