In a recent interview with a morning radio show, pop-star Justin Bieber quickly became agitated when a radio host commented about his similarities with Justin Timberlake and then decided to question him about his mother’s intimate relationships.
Bieber was being interviewed by Detroit-based Mojo of Mojo In The Morning when the host decided that it would be a good idea to compare the similarities between the “Sexy Back” star and Bieber’s recent single, “Boyfriend,” reports MSN.
“I hope you take this as a compliment” said Mojo.
“When I first got played the song by your record people, and this was months and months before it came out, they said ‘take a listen to this and tell me if you can tell me who this is.’ I thought it was Justin Timberlake.”
“When I heard Boyfriend for the very first time,” he said “I thought it was Justin Timberlake’s single.”
A clearly annoyed Bieber quickly retorted, saying “Man, that’s crazy because our voices sound nothing alike.”
The pop-star continued to defend his music from being compared to Timberlake and wasn’t being fooled by the radio show host’s attempt to make subtle jabs at his music as the interview continued, reports Gawker.
Mojo went on to talk about the Bieb’s relationship with the band member’s of “One Direction” when he decided to take it up a notch and ask Justin if he was nervous about the other teen heart-throb’s being around his mother.
“Do you worry about Harry around your mom since he likes older women?” said Mojo.
Undeniably over it, Bieber replies “No, but you should worry about me around your mom though.”
The interview quickly went down hill as Mojo informed that his mother had passed, prompting Justin to officially end the interview and hang up the phone.
Do you think Justin was justified in his response towards Mojo of “Mojo In The Morning”?
