Let's travel back to the frenzy surrounding the nude photos of Justin Bieber on vacation. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
One of the most surprising reactions came from Bieber's father, Jeremy, who took to Twitter to comment on the size of his son's genitals. The tweet, which has since been deleted, read, "@justinbieber what do you feed that thing. #proud daddy."
In response, the wind beneath our wings, Bette Midler, used the opportunity to take a shot at Bieber Sr.'s slightly sketchy history.
Well, Bieber is finally commenting on the controversial tweet. In his wide-ranging interview in the latest issue of Billboard, the pop star had some not-so-nice things to say about the "Hocus Pocus" actress. In fact, he doesn't even know her name!
“This Britt Meddler. I don’t even know who that is, honestly. I wanted to immediately say, ‘Who is this lady?’, but then I’m just fueling this negativity. I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads.”
Although Bieber has been faltering a bit on his redemption tour, he pledged that he is done making headlines for the wrong reasons.
“Enough with the Justin Bieber Show. I want to veer away from the self-centered attitude,” he says. “I’m just focused on the people who have been there since the start, on people who are taking the journey now. I want them to feel like we’re doing this together.”
Let's all change the channel.
