Justin Bieber may be on a self-imposed hiatus from music, but that doesn’t mean he’s lost the itch to entertain. On a recent trip to London with his partner (and possible wife) Hailey Baldwin, the singer busted out his guitar, sat on a fountain outside Buckingham Palace, and serenaded Baldwin with an acoustic performance of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.”
Bieber prefaced the performance by calling out to Baldwin to tell her: “I love you, babe. I love you so much, it hurts. You’re my favorite. That girl right there is the love of my life.” Instagram user Theresa Dorsel captured the moment and whipped the camera around to catch Baldwin’s reaction, who seemed, well, bashful. We guess Baldwin isn’t used to having karaoke classics sung at her outside royal institutions.
According to BBC News, Bieber also performed “Cold Water,” his 2016 collaboration with Major Lazer and MO, and wow, imagine you go to Buckingham Palace to see the royals and you end up seeing Bieber perform his and Tracy Chapman’s greatest hits. As silly as it was, it was also kind of endearing. The Biebs just wants to sing to his girl.
Here’s a longer clip from Bieber’s London busking stint.
This news comes almost a week after Bieber and Baldwin reportedly got married at a New York City courthouse. Baldwin shut down rumors that she and Bieber eloped but her Uncle, Alec Baldwin, told Access at the 2018 Emmy Awards that he was under the impression his niece was married.
Married or not, these two are clearly deep in love.
