While some people may have thought it was a joke, considering Seth’s comedy leanings, it’s no surprise that he was actually dead serious about the comment. After all, Justin Bieber IS a piece of shit – and Seth talked about his experience meeting the walking skidmark on The Howard Stern Show (via Entertainment Tonight):
“He’s a good example of someone you meet, who you think you’re going to hate him, and then you get to hate him as much as you thought,” Rogen explained. “You meet him, and he meets up to every one of your [bad] expectations of how you hope he will be.”
Rogen recalled his first meeting with the Biebs when the two just so happened to be appearing on a German talk show at the same time, and Bieber’s people asked him to step outside of his dressing room to meet the Baby singer.
“And it was weird, I was like, ‘Sure, I’ll meet him.’ So I went outside to meet him and he was acting like I asked to meet him! It was very nonchalant, ‘Yo man. Sup,’ and I’m like, ‘What the f*ck, I don’t want to meet you. Don’t act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn’t want to meet you! I was totally cool not meeting you! … But I was like, fine, I wouldn’t have said anything, I was like, ‘Aye, he’s a bit of a mother*cker. He’s young, the kid’s a d**k.’”
Though the second time the two met at an MTV Awards show two years later, things didn’t go much better.
“He literally had a snake wrapped around his fu*king wrist that he was wearing. I was like, what the fu*k?” Rogen laughed. “And I talked to him for like five minutes and I just remember thinking, ‘F*ck this kid.’”
Side note: Seth says his Neighbors co-star Zac Efron is Bieber’s polar opposite and is super sweet and super humble, too. Good to know!
