Þátturinn Comedy Central Roast fór fram nú fyrir skemmstu og var umdeilda barnastjarnan Justin Bieber tekinn fyrir.
Grínistinn Kevin Hart var þáttastjórnandinn og sá um „grillunina“ á Bieber þar sem margir heimsfrægir leikarar, tónlistarmenn og fleiri gátu komið upp á svið og einfaldlega „skitið yfir hann“ eins og menn segja.
Við ætlum að halda tilvitnunum í grínistana á ensku. Hér eru nokkrir af grófustu bröndurum kvöldsins:
Það þarf varla að taka það fram, en það var af nógu að skjóta, enda hefur Bíberinn verið mjög umdeildur síðustu mánuði.
“Tonight we’re going to give what his parents and the legal system should have done years ago,” sagði kynnirinn Kevin Hart. “We’re going to give this boy an ass-whoopin.’”
“Ebola patients hear about ‘Bieber fever’ and say, ‘I’m gonna go ahead and ride this one out.’”
“Selena Gomez wanted to be here, but she’s dating men now,” sagði grínistinn Jeff Ross.
“Is it true you dumped her because she grew a mustache before you?”
“Justin Bieber wants to be black so bad, he’s actually seen Kevin Hart’s movies in theaters,” djókaði rapparinn Ludacris.
“You have it all,” sagði grínistinn, Chris D’Elia. “Except love, friends, good parents, and a Grammy.”
“They say that you roast the ones you love,” sagði Hannibal Buress, “but I don’t like you at all, man. I’m just here because it’s a real good opportunity for me.”
“Actually you should thank me for participating in this extremely transparent attempt to be more likeable in the public eye. And, I hope it doesn’t work.”
Shaq ákvað að mæta líka upp á svið og láta heyra í sér:
“Justin, as a father of six you have to straighten up, son,” sagði Shaq. “Last year, you were ranked the fifth most-hated person of all time. Kim Jong-Un didn’t rank that low. And he uses your music to torture people.”
“You bought a monkey!” sagði Snoop Dogg. “I mean, that monkey was more embarrassed than the one that started the AIDS epidemic.”
Ron Burgandy mætti meira að segja óvænt!
“This kid has spunk, moxie, and a few other STDs“.
Og algjörlega óvænt, steig Martha Stewart á svið:
“All these rappers on stage and Martha Stewart has done the most jail time,” grínaðist uppistandarinn Natasha Leggero.
Martha Stewart ákvað að gefa Justin Bieber nokkur ráð:
“You need to settle down, bring some balance into your life,” sagði hún.
“Find yourself the right gal, but she’s going to have to really special, someone on your level, someone powerful and famous and rich.
“Someone you can smoke a joint with or engage in the occasional three-way.
“I’m talking about a player in the boardroom and a freak in the bedroom,” sagði hún.
“So, Justin, my final piece of advice is, call me.”
Í lok kvöldsins var Bieber orðinn svolítið hrærður …
En í lok kvölds steig hann á svið með apann sinn og fékk loks tækifæri til þess að svara fyrir sig.
“What do you get when you give a teenager $200 million?” spurði hann. “A bunch of has-beens calling you a lesbian for two hours.”
En hann sast líka niður og ræddi hlutina á alvarlegri nótunum og baðst afsökunar á hegðun sinni undanfarið.
“I’ve turned a lot of people off in the last few years,” sagði hann. “But I know I can still put out good music and turn everything all around.”
“There was really no preparing me for this life. I was thrown into this at 12 years old,” sagði Bieber.
“I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. There were moments I am proud of. And there are moments I am disappointed with myself for. But the things I have done don’t define who I am. I am kind-hearted person who loves people. And through it all, I have lost some of my best qualities. For that, I’m sorry.”
“I am looking forward to being someone you can all be proud of,” sagði hann. “Someone close to me once said, ‘It’s how you rise from a fall that truly defines you as a man.’ I’m excited for that challenge. And I want to say thank you for taking this journey with me.”
Svo það eru spennandi tímar framundan hjá Justin Bieber!
