Is Justin Bieber finally growing up? The notorious bad boy of teen pop took his lumps like a man during a brutal Comedy Central Roast that aired last night. And the 21-year-old — most frequently seen sans shirt — dressed the part of serious upstanding citizen in a royal blue suit, pink striped socks, dress shoes and slicked-back hair. Oh, and let’s not forget the ‘stache (such as it was).
Roasters on the show — who included comedians Kevin Hart, Jeff Ross and Natasha Leggero, as well as special guests Snoop Dog, Ludacris, Shaquille O’Neal and a surprisingly brilliant Martha Stewart — took the Biebs to task for all his past transgressions, from egging houses and overspending at strip joints to bad tattoos and DUIs.
Then, of course, there were the countless ex-girlfriend jabs.
From roast master Ross: “Selena Gomez wanted to be here but she’s dating men now. Is it true you dumped her because she grew a mustache before you?”
However, the single heartthrob got kind offer from Stewart, which brought down the house:
“Find yourself the right gal. She’ll have to be very special. She’ll have to be someone on your level, powerful and famous and rich. Someone you can smoke a joint with or indulge in the occasional three way. I’m talking about a player in the boardroom and a freak in the bedroom. So Justin, call me.”
While the pop star may have dressed up for the event, let’s not forget his rather healthy sneaker habit, particularly his love of high-tops. Conveniently, FN has rounded up some of his best high-top sneaker moments. Check out the gallery here.
