Justin Bieber: Why Was He the Worst Saturday Night Live Host EVER?

by at .

Hmmm... is it too late for Justin Bieber to tell Bill Hader he's sorry?

The former Saturday Night Live cast member was a guest on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, in promotion of his upcoming HBO series, when the topic turned to Hader's least favorite SNL host of all-time.

And the comedian didn't hesitate in giving a response:


The answer was undoubtedly Bieber, Hader said.

“He was in a bad place,” Hader said, thinking back to Bieber's much darker days and adding:

“Maybe he’s in a better place, but back then … It was rough.”

The artist served as host and musical guest on a February 2013 episode.

At the time, he was in the middle of a world tour at the time, having just released his third studio album, Believe, in June 2012... and drinking a lot, partying often and generally acting like a dick.

Hader told Bill Simmons on his podcast last week that Bieber yelled at some SNL staff members who were simply trying to do a wardrobe change for him, while showing up with a giant entourage.

He said similar things to Howard Stern back in May of 2013.

Bieber as Host

"Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys and every time - backstage is a very small constructed place - he had a guy holding a slice of pizza, a guy holding a Diet Coke," Hader told Stern, adding:

"You were trying to fight around all these people to get dressed."

Once again, Hader did try to be diplomatic about Bieber's terrible behavior and attitude.

"Everyone’s usually on great behavior. Everyone’s very excited. Most times it’s 100 percent and that’s why I think Bieber was the only one, in my experience.

"He just seemed, like, exhausted or at the end of a rope. He was just so huge."

It was a tough time for the star, who is sort of going through another one now as he tries to win back over Selena Gomez.

On the flip side, Hader also told Stern a few years ago:

“I had nice chats with [Bieber] when he was doing the scenes… he was a nice guy. He would try to do the best that he can.”
