Justin Bieber responded to 5 Seconds of Summer’s Michael Clifford’s shade in ‘Rolling Stone’ with a little shade of his own. The Biebs broke his silence on Twitter, calling him out for his comments (in now deleted tweets), and making something clear: he doesn’t hate the band!
5 Seconds of Summer‘s Michael Clifford may think that Justin Bieber can’t stand his band, as he told Rolling Stone‘s January 14 issue, but Justin’s denying that claim. In a series of now-deleted tweets, Justin called out Michael and the band for name-dropping him in the interview, and alleging that they weren’t even at his AMAs after party in the first place! Click through to see his tweets!
The 5 Seconds of Summer guys were the cover story for Rolling Stone‘s January 14 issue, and besides a completely nude photoshoot, their comments on Justin was the most talked about part of their profile. Michael said that Justin probably “hated them” because they crashed his AMAs after party. He also revealed that Justin played his new album, Purpose, on loop for the entire bash! Nothing about that is true, says Justin. He took to Twitter after catching wind of the interview, but eventually deleted his pointed tweets. An intrepid Belieber blessedly screenshot the whole “saga,” though!
“@Michael5SOS sorry guy. Don’t hate you. Don’t even know u. And are u sure u came to our party because my album wasn’t on loop? Strange,” his first tweet read. “wish u the best. Don’t use my name for headlines. U are already on the cover [of Rolling Stone]. U don’t need it. Just be honest. Big hugs bud.”

Well it seems like Justin was totally miffed by Michael’s interview! Though Michael spoke largely about the experience of being in one of the biggest bands in the world, and their hard-partying lifestyle (while hungover in his boxers, no less!), it was the small remark about Justin that really stuck with everyone. It’s understandable that he’d want to clear the air. Michael has since responded — read his tweet here!
