Seth Rogen Unloads on Justin Bieber, Says There's a Reason Pop Star Is Hated
Comic actor Seth Rogen says he might have kept his feelings about Justin Bieber to himself had the pop star not been involved in an egging incident and drag racing misadventures.
Now, Rogen says, it's game on.
Rogen trashed the Canadian pop singer during an appearance this week on The Howard Stern Show. The Neighbors star said he ran into Bieber a few times in recent years, and each time confirmed what he suspected of the young man.
It wasn't a positive image.
He's a good example of someone, who you meet, who you think you are going to hate and then you get to hate him ... you meet him and he lives up to every one of your expectations.
Rogen says Bieber orchestrated their first meeting and then acted as if the actor had requested the face-to-face chat.
What the f***, I don't want to meet you!" Rogen said of the first encounter. "Don't act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn't want to meet you."
Rogen attributed it to Bieber being young, but when he met him a few years later, Bieber was the same way, he said.
"I saw him again at like an MTV awards show, he literally had a snake wrapped around his f****** wrist that he was wearing," Rogen explained. "I talked to him for like five minutes. ... No humility, no awareness, no sense that 'I appeal to young, young people, maybe a grown man who works in comedy doesn't f****** give a s*** about me. Maybe I should act in such a way that perhaps this isn't the great experience of his f****** life.'
