If you’re wondering how Justin Bieber felt about watching Kate McKinnon spoof his sexy Calvin Klein ad on ‘SNL’, he put on a good front for the public, but HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal it wasn’t all fun for him.
Justin Bieber, 20, has appeared on Saturday Night Live four times — including once as a host in 2013. However, on Jan. 17, 2015, the show decided to take aim at the singer and his hot new Calvin Klein ad campaign — with cast member Kate McKinnon in character as the singer and pointing to his ‘pee-pee’ and bulge. Unfortunately, Justin didn’t find these jokes as funny as everyone else did!
Justin Bieber Wasn’t Happy With ‘SNL’ Skits
The “ads” were very funny, with Kate’s impeccable impression of Justin dressed in his underwear and telling the camera in a sexy tone that he’s a “big boy” now. Cecily Strong joined in on the fun by putting on a blonde wig to impersonate model Lara Stone, refusing to let “Justin” touch her boob during the video.
Even though Justin tweeted SNL during the live broadcast to tell them the skits were “well played,” HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that at first, he wasn’t too thrilled with SNL making fun of him.
“Justin hated the skits about him on ‘SNL.’ It made him wonder if he should ever do the show again because they did that to him,” a source close to the singer shared.
“But cooler heads prevailed and he just vented to anyone who would listen that he thought the skits were mean spirited. He did not have a sense of humor over it.”
Eek. Thankfully, it looks like Justin finally found the humor in the skits — which is why he put on a positive front on Twitter.
Don’t worry about it, Justin — maybe they’ll let you make fun of yourself next time you appear on the show!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers — Are you surprised by Justin’s reaction? Do you think he has a right to be upset, or should he find the humor in the skits? Comment below with your thoughts.
