Justin Bieber talks about being bullied, also calls fan a beached whale
A day before visiting the typhoon-ravaged Phillipines, Justin Bieber spoke with Ryan Seacrest on Monday to promote his upcoming film Believe, a documentary that he says will justify his headline-making antics. Oh, you mean like that time the other day when he called a girl a beached whale?
While he isn't peeing in a kitchen's mop bucket or riding around on his boyguards' shoulders, Bieber apparently is busy telling fat jokes to a total stranger's face.
The Boyfriend singer was at Perth's Hyatt Regency in Australia on Sunday when he saw a girl wearing a bikini and hanging out by the pool with her friends, Us Weekly reports. A hotel guest tells news.com.au she heard Bieber yell the comment.
"There were four young girls in bikinis," she said. "One girl who was gorgeous looking, with long dark hair and would have been about a size 14. Justin looked over at her and said 'What are you, Hawaiian or something?' She said 'No, I'm not'. Then he said 'You look like a beached whale.'" Another hotel guest says he made a gesture to show a large belly and wrapped up his little standup show with, "You should go on The Biggest Loser."
Word is his comment left everyone in the vicinity in total silence. We would have broken the silence. The hotel says the girl is okay and she's a fan, so that makes it all better, and Bieber seems to have issued a vague apology in 140 characters or less, tweeting, You are all beautiful.
The Biebs tells Seacrest, “I’m still finding myself and when I have the media attacking me everyday, it’s no (different) than bullying that happens in school… I think this movie really shows who I am as a person… of course I make mistakes growing up… and I’m not perfect… people forget I’m a human being.”
Sure, he’s human; he’s just not very good at it yet.
