Justin Bieber Gets Pissy When Asked About Justin Timberlake & One Direction

Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake have the same first name, but that’s where the similarities end, if you asked the Biebs. The Canadian pop singer was not impressed when an interviewer commented he thought it was Timberlake singing “Boyfriend” the first time he heard it. Bieber quickly replied, “Our voices sound nothing alike.” The radio morning host explained it was meant to be a compliment, but Mr. Selena Gomez wasn’t having any of it, saying he has his “own lane and not be compared.”

Guess JB never got the memo, but “Boyfriend” does sound like a Timberlake track. Even the music video for it looks like an updated version of JT’s “Like I Love You“. Personally, I think being compared to Timberlake would be a compliment. It’s not like he being compared to Howie Dorough from the Backstreet Boys 😉

As if that segment wasn’t awkward enough, things go even worse from then on. When the topic of One Direction came up, Justin called the boyband “kids“. The interviewer than asked Bieber, “Do you worry about Harry (One Direction) when he’s around your mom because it seems like he likes older women?”. They go back and forth with odd banter with Bieber eventually hanging up on the radio host. Listen to the interview in its entirety below.

Do you think Justin should’ve been offended with the Timberlake comparison? Would you have hung up if someone brought up your mother? Sound off below.

    So, I can understand hanging up when someone mentions your mom. That totally makes sense. But a few things… first off, Justin Bieber you are a douche. The “kids” in one direction? Four out of five of them are older than Biebs. Another thing, being compared to someone who’s about 1000% more times talented than you? A huge compliment. And I’m not even a Justin Timberlake fan, but seriously, dude is way more talented than Bieber. I also could have sworn that Boyfriend was Timberlake when I first heard it. Justin Bieber is such a loser. The dude can start being all self righteous when he can get through a live performance without them having to cut to a lip sync half way through because his voice sucks so much. *cough*amas*cough*

    Has Bieber already forgotten that he too was a kid not to long ago? He just turned 18. Just because you try to be like all the rappers nowadays by how you dress and act, doesn’t make you grown up. Being compared to Justin Timberlake is a compliment, take it; don’t be arrogant and self-centered. The part I do feel was not appropriate, was the Harry’s arm around your mom. Show’s how much journalistic integrity that radio personality has.

    You do know that he is just 18 years old. I saw him on the youtube interview with Jimmy Fallon and was impressed with his personality and maturity. I taught 15 to 18 year olds in high school for 35 years and rarely saw teens with such a grounded sense of themselves and maturity.

  • Donny

    The main thing you gotta remember is that Bieber is Usher’s prodigy. Around the time of “Sexyback”, Usher and Timberlake had major beef and considered each other their biggest competition. So Biebs is not trying to hear any comparison to an arch enemy of his camp.

    He didn’t sound pissy, he just explained that if someone said there were moments in the song where you sound JT esque he would have taken that as a compliment. But to say that he sounds just like someone to him is not a compliment.

    Since his mom is dead and knowing that the kid was probably going to hit him back with something for joking about his mom…….he should have left him alone with that question. All because Selena talked about a joke with Bieber, does not mean that someone else can joke about it as well.
