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?

I think he shouldn't have been so offended by the Justin Timberlake comparison. Justin Timberlake is a successful and talented artist. While I do think the whole "Harry Styles might want to sleep with your mom, so you better watch out" was inappropriate and the host should have known that the insinuation would probably not bring about a positive response from Justin, hanging up still seemed a little bratty. If it were me, I would have told him it was inappropriate if I felt it was, while still trying to be respectful, and changing the subject. Clearly the host didn't mean to offend Justin, but Justin interpreted it as offensive. I don't think either side is 100% in the right here because of that.
