Justin Bieber flew to Rome from LAX Airport on Sunday (April 26), reportedly ahead of him appearing in the Ben Stiller-directed Zoolander 2, which is currently shooting in ROME, reports Inquisitr.
In addition, in one of two Facebook messages he posted Monday, Justin announced that a music video for “Where Are U Now” — his single with Jack U’s Diplo and Skrillex — is on the way.
Italy’s Cineblog and Spetteguless entertainment websites claim sources connected to the Zoolander 2 production said Justin is in Rome to film a cameo for the movie.
Both sites insist Justin isn’t filming a video for “Where Are U Now” in Rome. Cineblog even stated that the rumor was a hoax to fool fans.
The outlets claim Justin will film scenes for Zoolander 2 on Wednesday (April 29) in the Barberini area of Rome. This comes after British Formula One champ Lewis Hamilton was spotted on set last week.
Meanwhile, Diplo is touring Europe. According to an Instagram he posted Monday, he and Skrillex played in Amsterdam last night. It’s possible the duo may be meeting up with Justin and his team in Rome (or elsewhere in Europe) to film the video.
“Where Are U Now” was officially sent to radio on April 21. Currently, the single occupies the upper four positions on multiple dance-specific charts. It has just broken into the Top 40 of Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart (No. 40), England’s official Top 40 (No. 32) singles chart, and is at No. 34 on Mediabase’s official pop airplay chart.
