Justin Bieber's Comedy Central Roast does not air until March 30, but it was taped this past weekend. While some of the jokes have leaked, we are going to wait to watch them all in context since it's MORE fun that way. Why must everything be spoiled and shared too early?
But what else happened?
The TODAY show revealed that host Kevin Hart said, "Tonight we're going to give what his parents and the legal system should have done years ago. We're going to give this boy an ass-whoopin.'"
Among the jokes were comedian Jeff Ross calling Bieber the "King Joffrey of pop," while Shaquille O'Neal noted that the pop star was more disliked than Kim Jong-un. Ouch!
Good one, Shaq. But not true! We wuv Da Biebs.
Bieber eventually got back at his roasters with jabs of his own, but he also took the time to apologize for his behavior.
"I turned a lot of people off over the past few years, but I know I can still turn out good music and turn everything all around," Bieber said. "I've lost some of my best qualities. For that, I am sorry. I'm looking forward to being someone who you guys can all look at and be proud of."
Thanks to TODAY for the scoop.
Can you say "PR rebirth" for The Biebs?
