Justin Bieber stars as an adorable nephew in his new music video “Ghost”. After her grandfather’s death, the singer reconnects with her grandmother, taking long walks with her along Ventura Beach, updating her dating profiles and taking her for an evening of cocktails and dancing. It’s a beautiful story in itself, but her fictional grandmother appears to be played by none other than Oscar-winning actress Diane Keaton, the fanciest grandma you could wish for. Vogue has an exclusive look at the video, which will be released tomorrow and is directed by Colin Tilley.
Apparently, Bieber chose the style to play like his grandmother. “He called me up and I said ‘yeah sure sure’,” Keaton told Vogue. “I thought the song was wonderful.” Compared, for example, to memorizing lines and signs for a feature film, Keaton says she liked the smoother approach to acting for her first clip. “It was just fun,” Keaton says. “All my life I’ve been an actress and made jokes, and sometimes I have to loosen them up a bit – but it was just completely cowardly and relaxed.It’s my favorite, “Keaton says.” A coat is the coolest thing in the world for someone like me, which is kinda weird. Let’s face it: I’m willing to accept being a little weird.
“In another scene, Bieber buys Keaton a new dress and takes him to town. Justin wears a vintage rugby top and Balenciaga jeans; Keaton wears his chic Comme des Garçons coat with an extra large belt (a Keaton signature) Even the darkest scenes have a refined look. At his grandfather’s funeral, Bieber wears a Saint Laurent suit, while Keaton wears a black Louis Vuitton jacket. In all of this, Keaton wears his iconic dramatic hats, including his favorites of Nick Fouquet, Thom Browne and Mark Baron. “I don’t count my hats, but I’ve kept all my old hats,” he says.
“For me a hat is a friend.Fabulous outfits aside, it’s clear that Keaton and Bieber have a natural relationship in the clip. Keaton adds that the singer was a laid back collaborator. “It’s absolutely fascinating,” he says.
“He must have hugged me as we walked in the ocean. If I wanted to hug him, I would hug him. He was stuck with me. I kept thinking. : ‘Oh, that poor boy.’ “Of course the fun was all in Bieber Below, more exclusive photos from Bieber’s new ‘Ghost’ video.
