Justin Bieber has come a long way from "Baby"! The Canadian crooner, who turned 18 in March, debuted the video for his song "Boyfriend" last night. The clip, as promised in the sneak peeks he revealed earlier, has a more grown-up vibe than many of his videos, and features the Biebs with some adoring ladies and hot cars in a parking lot. Although there's a lot of online buzz about how it resembles boy band *NSYNC's video for the song "Girlfriend," Bieber revealed to MTV Thursday that he'd never even seen the 2002 clip. However, Bieber noted that Timberlake has been a big influence on him, particularly since J.T. was successful in transitioning from a teen idol to an artist who's also taken seriously by adults. "He was young, and he did it, and he was really amazing and had such amazing music," Bieber said. "I can't say that I would be upset when someone compares me to him."
