Jesse McCartney's 'Leavin" video: Hot or TOO hot?

By now, you’ve probably seen Jesse McCartney’s latest video, "Leavin’" — if you haven’t, watch below. My colleagues Gary Susman and Michael Slezak think it’s a bit too suggestive for a young man who’s 20, but looks 16. Doesn’t bother me though. (I was more weirded out when I realized he now looks like a hot Frankie Muniz.)

What’s your position: Hot or TOO hot? And is it just me, or is this song almost as catchy as "Beautiful Soul?" (The boy does know a good pop chorus when he hears it.)

    Forget Jesse, the star of this video is Niki Huey. Learn her name, she will be a BIG STAR!

    I’ve got to agree with those saying it’s inappropriate. Sure he’s 20, but he DOES look 16, combine that with the fact that the AutoTune that fixes his voice can’t be more than 5 years old and that adds up to borderline pedo, if you ask me.

  • Jess

    I don’t think that video will be making it to the Disney channel that’s for sure

  • Nikki

    The song is super-catchy, but JMac is just trying WAY too hard to prove that he’s had sex since the last time we saw him.

    It’s hot, not too hot. He hasn’t associated himself with Disney in a while, hasn’t he?
    Thing of it is, the director of the video made the couple look sultry but left enough to the imagination to pick up the subtlety that can make it seem too hot.
    Still better than the million other videos out there right now, that’s for sure.
    And yes, what’s with this kid being able to come out with catchy songs? God, do I have to prepare myself hear this earworm in the mall soon?

  • Mike

    His voice is so processed and altered to the point of no return. And he plus, he’s trying wayyy to hard in this video.

    That chick looks waaaay to old for him.

    Hot not too hot. I think it shows an average sexually-aware teenage couple. They are clearly a couple which is better than all the random hook up images floating around.

    I don’t think it’s too hot. I’ve seen hotter. it’s just the right amount of hot. lol I listened to it like 5 times the first time i saw it. It really is catchy, despite the fact that it sounds like he’s trying to tap into R&B markets like Justin Timberlake did. And as for trying too hard, he seems pretty normal. I’m sure he doesn’t feel as young as you see him as. Side note: Ill! Frankie Muniz???

    It’s only hot if you like mannequin porn ’cause those are the two most plastic looking people I’ve ever seen.

  • annie

    i’m thinking it’s TOO hot if the same 12 year olds who liked his first stuff are still listening. but maybe it’s just old fogies like us now. he is darned cute.

    Are you sure he’s not 16? Only a 16-year-old would force his poor girlfriend to fool around with him on a bare mattress. They’re called sheets buddy and they’re not expensive!

  • Cristina

    Who is he? I have never heard of him.

  • joe

    i couldnt get through half of it. i felt like i was watching child porn. has he even gone through puberty yet? its gross.

  • Susi

    A. It’s icky hot:P Very kiddie-porn-ish.
    B. Also very gay with the necklace.
    C. I agree with the Muniz look-alike quality.
    D. Speaking of McCartney, how is Heather Mills deserving of a $50 million settlement?? Please someone explain that to me!
