Lately, Justin has had some problems with reports. This time, he was doing a call-in interview for the program “Mojo in the Morning.”
Justin started to get upset when the interviewer compared him to Justin Timberlake. He tried to give the pop star a compliment, but Justin definitely didn’t take it that way: “Our voices sound nothing alike. Saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment.”
They also asked him about his song “Maria”, which is about the Mariah Yeater paternity scandal, which Justin wasn’t too happy to be reminded of.
They also asked him about his potential work with One Direction, and Justin said they were “good kids” (even though all of them are actually older than him).
It was all fine, and then the interviewer asked “Do you worry about Harry when he’s around your mom, because it seems like he likes older women?” He was making a reference to a joke Justin and Selena had made about hiding their pretty young moms from Harry Styles (who’s been known to date an older woman or two).
But Justin really didn’t like this – he said “I don’t think you should worry about me, worry about your mom, bro.”
Wow! And the reporter answered “Justin, my mom is dead, so unfortunately, it wouldn’t work.” Justin snapped and hung up the phone.
His publicist got on the phone to attempt to smooth things over, but Justin refused to continue the interview. You can listen to the whole thing below.
Do you think Justin’s angry reaction was reasonable? Or did he take it way too seriously?
