Justin Bieber Cuts Off Interview After Mum Jibe And Justin Timberlake Comparison
Justin Bieber recently had an interview with US radio presenter Thomas Carballo on Mojo in the Morning, which soon went sour as the interviewer brought up some awkward subjects. Speaking to the 18-year-old, Carballo said that when he heard Bieber’s track ‘Boyfriend’, he thought it sounded like Justin Timberlake…
Justin flatly replied, saying: “That’s funny, as our voices sound nothing alike. Saying I sound like someone else is definitely not a compliment.”
Unfazed by the downhill spiral the interview had taken, the radio presenter then began talking about boyband One Direction, with Justin saying they are “good kids.” Justin was then asked if he was worried about heart-throb band member Harry Styles being around his mother, as Harry has previously admitted to liking older women.
He said: "Do you worry about Harry around your mum, since he likes older women?"
Apparently surprised by the strange question, Bieber replied: “I think you should worry about your mum, bro.”
Thomas quickly hit back saying: “Justin, my mum’s dead so unfortunately I don’t think that will work.”
The unfortunate encounter ended with an extremely long silence before the phone went dead, seemingly because Justin hung up. His record company representative then spoke to the DJ, saying the ‘Believe’ artist did not hang up - his signal went. She said: “I can’t get him. He’s in a really s***ty area.”
She added: “He probably won’t be calling back.”
