Justin Bieber Angrily Cuts Off Interview: Doesn't Want To Talk About One Direction

Fri, June 29, 2012 8:24pm EDT by 134 Comments

Oh no! Justin Bieber gets extremely upset after radio DJ compares him to Justin Timberlake and makes a joke about One Direction and Justin’s mother! Things get really tense and he hangs up the phone — listen to the interview!

Justin Bieber did a very strained interview with Detroit’s 106.7 show, “Mojo in the Morning” today and he ended up hanging up the phone on Mojo! Everything went down after questions involving One Direction and Harry Styles.

The interview with Justin started out friendly and sweet with the DJ complimenting Justin on his charity work and his new Believe album but things got a bit awkward when Mojo tried to give Justin praise on the song “Boyfriend” by saying “I thought it was Justin Timberlake.” Mojo adds, “I hope you take this as a compliment, I really mean it as that.”

But the Biebs was not pleased. “Man that’s crazy ’cause our voices sound nothing alike. I mean, saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment.

They continue the conversation, speaking about Mariah Yeater and Justin’s song “Maria” and then Mojo brings up One Direction and Justin’s new friendship with the group. Bieber calls them “good kids” and said “They were in town a while ago and came over and stuff,” although he didn’t seem interested in speaking about it.

This is when the interview really started going downhill. “Do you worry about Harry [Styles] being around your mom since it seems like he likes older women?” joked Mojo. “I think you should worry about me around your mom, bro,” snapped Bieber.

“Justin my mom’s dead so unfortunately that wouldn’t work,” revealed the DJ, whose mom is in fact deceased.

At this point Justin hangs up the phone and his rep from the record company comes on and says “Hi so he got a little upset with the question and he probably won’t be coming back.”

The DJ explained to his fans that the reason he asked Justin about Harry Styles and his mom in the first place is because in a recent interview Selena said Justin joked about it since Harry’s known for his taste in older women! So this was actually a joke Justin had apparently made in the first place!

What do you guys think? Do you think Mojo went to far in his questioning or was Justin overreacting in his responses? Let us know in your comments!

The radio station is 95.5, not 106.7. I live in Detroit & listen to Mojo every day. I think Bieber is immature.

I really like Justin Bieber but think in this case he over reacted. The interviewer was being nice with his compliments and I didn’t detect any sarcasm at all. When JB didn’t like the question about his mom he should have made light with it and gone on. He has made a comment about hiding Salina and his mom from 1 direction. When learning the interviewer’s mom was deceased a mature reaction would be “I’m really sorry to hear that: and continue not hang up.

I have always liked Justin Bieber but in this case I think he over reacted. The interviewer really was being kind with compliments not sarcasm. He (JB) could have made light of the comment about 1 Direction and his mom but since he didn’t and learned the interviewer’s mom was deceased saying someting like “I’m really sorry to hear that” and get back on track with the interview.

Be careful when referring to someone who is “quoting” another person. You can never be certain if that someone (Selena in this case) is actually quoting something [Justin] has said, or just trying to ease the tension in her own conversation/interview. Discount any “she/he said”s and “they were like”s because these are rarely accurate.

Also, with the amount of crap Justin has received over the years about his voice, it’s no surprise that it can be touchy subject.

Finally, by mentioning a death, the interview was sure to go downhill. It’s not uncommon for someone to lie about death, ESPECIALLY with ‘Ur Mum’ jokes. Justin may have been offended by it or thought it was a lie to evoke sympathy or guilt.

Think about it from BOTH points of view.

I am a journalist.
I do not understand how Mojo can make jokes about the mother of the other knowing that his is dead!! it does not respacte his mother simply.
because you must know that when you make a joke about the mother of someone, that person will respond by causing the same thing about your mother!.
  it’s too easy! Mojo has to say to the end that his mother died!.
and finally, Justin Bieber could not know that mijo motrer was dead.

That Mojo guy better prepare to get hit with a backpack, a shoe, a car and golf balls. first Justin’s voice in boyfriend doesn’t sound like Justin Timberlake’s voice. second he cant compare artists at all. Justin gets really mad when someone talks about his family like that especially his mom. in fact anybody could get upset if someone said like that about his mother so MOJO STFU.and Justin wasn’t dumb just because he said that so that women in the interview better shut her mouth. that wasn’t even a joke. and it wasn’t the same question to Selena .. and i wanna say something to the guy who said it was stupid that justin said about 1D “ggod Kids’ & then he said they’re older than him , he thinks that he’s better than them. YES JUSTIN IS MUCH BETTER THAN 1D. and they’re not all of them older than .. actually only zayn & Louis.he didn’t sound immature just because he got upset and hang up the phone. MOJO YOU ARE A DOUCHEBAG.

I am sorry but this is out of order! Justin was acting like a brat, he made the joke himself! If he didn’t want anyone saying anything then WHY MAKE THE JOKE HIMSELF! No offence but beliebers are just stupid. Your wasting your time worshipping an idiot. He thinks that the world revolves around him and he only cares about the fans. There was a video leaked on youtube a while ago where he said something like ‘screw the haters’, good for him but he could have said it nicer. HE is the DOUCHEBAG not MOJO

U don’t have the right to say JB is better than 1D it’s stupid too Justin is a solo artist and 1D is a boy band they’re music genres are different too so it’s pretty idiotic to say one is better than the other

it’s not funny DJMojo .In fact Timberlake’s songs were good but his voice like a mezzo-soprano Bieber’s voice is not perfect but their voice actually sound nothing alike .I dont care the 1D i dont know them who is who whatever .
I just realy obsessed with Justin’s new album, It is completely unexpected surprise ,he is genuine talented young man I hope he focus on music. Dont be affected by these silly people

I think Mojo just tryed to make joke but It got serious I m not belieber but when you are joking about somebody’s mother you should be careful you shouldnt even joke about it just find another stuf to make joke. And justin’s voice doesnt even sound like j.timberlake’s.
like I said I am not belieber and I think justin changed a lot.. he is just saying I love beliebers but thats all.
