Justin Bieber could barely hold back his giggles as he attempted a British accent during an interview…but was he doing it to try and win over Selena Gomez? After all, she IS spending a lot of time with a guy from a very well known BRITISH boy band…
Watch out, Niall Horan — Justin Bieber is comin’ for ya! There’s one particular thing Niall has that the Biebs doesn’t — a sexy accent, of course! But Justin is ready to prove that he can rock it in this department, too, by showing off his very best British accent. Are you seeing this, Selena Gomez?!
On the same weekend that Selena and Niall were first linked as a couple, the 21-year-old was in the UK for Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball. During an on-camera interview, he was asked to repeat phrases in his best British tone, and he seemed to be focusing REALLY hard on getting it just right. Unfortunately, he also couldn’t stop laughing as he made his attempts, LOL!
Of course, he only did all this because he was prompted to in an interview, and Niall is Irish, not British, but we can’t help but notice the timing and noticeable comparisons. After news that Selena and Niall were caught kissing broke, Justin seemed to have been on a rampage to make his on-off love jealous — from posting photos of a sexy new crush on Instagram to partying all night long in London and with multiple girls in Miami, the “What Do You Mean?” singer appears to be really trying to make a point that he can move on, too.
But, as we previously reported, that’s definitely not the case. In fact, he really felt totally shocked and betrayed by his ex and good friend hooking up. “Justin is absolutely floored that Selena and Niall were seen kissing each other,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He and Selena didn’t have a commitment to one another, but it still shocked him to learn that she got close to another guy in such a public setting.”
It’s especially hurtful that Niall is the guy in question, because him and Justin have always been close. “Of all people, Niall? He feels totally betrayed and is flipping out,” our source added. “He has been texting Selena non-stop and she hasn’t been responding. He’s desperate to get in touch with her, even going so far as to post another throwback photo of them two together on his Instagram.” Oh yeah, he did that, too — kid is CRUSHED.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Justin’s British accent? Do you think he’s trying to be like Niall?
