Everything Gets Super Awkward When Lionel Richie Addresses His Daughter Sofia Dating Justin Bieber
"This is so uncomfortable, I'm gonna start running!"
So it was only a matter of time before we found out what Sofia's father Lionel Richie thought of the Biebs.
It all began when paparazzi decided to pounce on Lionel in the street whilst he was grabbing a pressed juice with his daughter Sofia and subsequently quiz him with the most important question on everyone's lips: "What juice does Lionel drink to keep the pipes wet?"
Ok, maybe the second most important then: "How do you feel about Justin dating your daughter?"
It turns out that Sofia had banned her dad from any embarassing answers as he simply said: "I'm not going there. I have strict orders not to go there!"
Still, prepare yourself for some next-level awkwardness:
To be honest, any dad talking about their daughter's love life is unsettling at the best of times.
But when it involves your dad being Lionel and your BF being Justin, it's understandable when it just gets a bit much.
Cue the embarrassed 18-year-old say: "This is so uncomfortable, I'm gonna start running!" before she starts legging it down the street.
On another note, when the pap asks "would you ever work on a song with the Biebs?", the singer replied that they would "figure it out".
We think he handled that pretty well, all things considered. Coolest dad award.
Watch out for a Lionel ft Justin track coming your way, apparently...
