better belieb it.
A radio interview with Justin Bieber hit an awkward ending when Detroit radiot host, Mojo, shed some light to the teenage heartthrob.
The short conversation between the pair was quickly expelled after Mojo questioned Bieber about his friendship with UK sensation, One Direction. When asked if he worries about Harry Styles being around his mother, due to Style’s fondness of older women, Bieber told the host that it should be him worried about his mother.
“I think you should worry about me being around your mum, bro,” Bieber mumbled on air.
Mojo quickly responded to the teenager’s quip by stating that his mother is dead.
Bieber refused to respond to the awkward confession, hanging up on the radio host after Mojo stated that “this is the moment the interview goes south”.
But according to the station, Bieber had already been on edge after being compared to Justin Timberlake by the radio host, during a discussing of his hit single, “Boyfriend”. Bieber became “quickly offended” on the topic, which set the mood for the rest of the interview, though Mojo attempted to comfort the teenager by stating he meant it as a compliment.
“Saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment,” Bieber stated.
