Justin Bieber Abruptly Ends Interview Due To Awkward Questions
“I hope you take this as a compliment. 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”, Mojo said about “Boyfriend“.
Well, Justin did not take that as a compliment.
“Man, that’s crazy because our voices sound nothing alike,” he said. “I
mean, I’m not trying to sound like anyone. Saying I sound like someone
else is not really a compliment. … I think if you were to say ‘I heard
some Justin Timberlake-esque things in your sound,’ I would take that
as a compliment”, Bieber replied.
Here are my thoughts, Justin is right on this one. His voice sounds nothing like Timberlake‘s voice. The sound, that’s a different story. Like he said there is “some Justin Timberlake-esque” sound in his music. Plus, he’s trying to do his own thing and he’s probably tired of people comparing him to the “Sexy Back” hitmaker.
As a reply, the “Baby” hitmaker told the host: “I don’t think you should worry about me [and my mom with Harry Styles] — Worry about your mom, bro.”
And here comes the bomb. The host told Justin that his mother had passed away at which point the Canadian superstar ended the interview.
In Bieber‘s defense, he was asked an uncomfortable question about his mom and he reacted like a lot of people would have probably did in that situation. He had no idea that Mojo’s mom had passed away. What he could and should have done was apologize and then end the interview. But he was probably annoyed and somewhat embarrassed after that.
Do you think Justin Bieber was entitled to get annoyed by the questions and end the interview?
