Justin Bieber Hangs Up on Interviewer Over Justin Timberlake Comparisons, Harry Styles Questions

by at . Comments

Justin Bieber did not take too kindly to questions on the "Mojo in the Morning" radio show recently, quickly becoming agitated and ultimately hanging up.

Comparisons to Justin Timberlake were the main catalyst, with references to Bieber's mom and One Direction's Harry Styles the apparent final straw.

“I hope you take this as a compliment,” stated Mojo. “When I heard 'Boyfriend' for the very first time. I thought it was Justin Timberlake's single.”

Justin Bieber was far from flattered. “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. ... if you were to say 'I heard some Justin Timberlake-esque things,' I would take that as a compliment."

That minor stiff was nothing compared to the reaction he had when Mojo decided to bring up Bieber's mother and One Direction singer Harry Styles.

After the radio host joked that Styles might end up seducing his mother, given his penchant for older women, Bieber went on the offensive.

"I don't think you should worry about me [and my mom with Harry Styles]," the 18-year-old sensation said. "Worry about your mom, bro."

Mojo then noted that his mom had passed away, right before Bieber peaced out. Awkward. What do you think of Bieber's reaction in hanging up?

When I read this on other sites, it made the interview sound so awkward in the beginning but honestly, Mojo was being so nice! He kept complimenting him and tried to lighten the mood with a little jest but wow Bieber, grow up. Such a bratty thing to do and rude nonetheless! Who do you think you are? You might not like all interviews but watch yourself and watch the things you say. What a KIDDDDD.

I thought it was Justin Timberlake the first time I heard it too. It seems like he steals his style too, from Rachel Maddow.

He needs to get over himself. But he seems to be starting to act more and more like a diva lately anyway with his hissy fits. The Justin Timberlake thing was meant to be a compliment and I don't see how that makes the interviewer rude. The whole watching out for Harry with his mom, that was something Selena Gomez revealed in an interview. She said: Both me and Justin still have really hot mom and Justin was like, ‘Harry might have become one of my best buddies, but with his record we need to keep him away from our mums.’� So they put it out there and the interviewer brought it up probably trying to lighten the mood after him freaking out over the Justin Timberlake comment.

He may not be trying to sound like anyone else but he sure is trying to look black. Also, I wasn't aware that Canadians have "hood" accents when they speak. Sup homie!

I think Justin acted his age, plus the whole ego. It's a radio talk show, one would think the host would say/do something abit questionable. Not a real shocker. Take it all as compliments and laugh off the rest. It makes the host look bad and creates a different headline.

He needs to get over himself, the interviewer was being polite about the whole Justin timberlake thing and he blew it way out of proportion. And the whole thing with his mom and Harry, it's called having a sense of humor >_> Justin was probably PMSing that day
