Talk about a royal pain!
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber may have the hair, but he doesn't always have the best judgment. The pop superstar recently dared to diss Prince William -- for his hair (or lack thereof), of all things!
JB gave U.K.'s Rollercoaster magazine his take on the 30-year old Prince's noticeably thinning hair, saying "I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia. I don't know why he doesn't just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?"
The Prince's Brit backers were none too pleased, but before they take Bieber's dig too personally, let's not forget that it's not the first time the popular pop star has delivered a questionable quote!
Bieber's 2011 Rolling Stone interview is already notorious -- but let's give him a break, he was only 16 at the time! Still, perhaps his handlers should have stepped in when he started talking abortion and politics. While Bieber famously called the U.S. healthcare system "evil" and weighed in on the subject of abortion with "I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby," he should have done his homework before dishing this doozy about political parties: "I'm not sure about the parties," he said. "But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad."
Fast forward a year later to a 2012 Rolling Stone interview, when Bieber really outdid himself. The article had him talking about his Canadian ancestry and quoted him as saying "I'm actually part Indian. I think Inuit or something? I'm enough percent that in Canada I can get free gas." Bieber was promptly chastised by The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples national chief Betty Ann Lavallée, who said his "These kinds of remarks are another example of what Aboriginal Peoples in Canada struggle with every day. It promotes the misconception that we are somehow getting a free ride. This simply is not the case and we are concerned that many people may believe what he said."
During an appearance on "The David Letterman Show," Bieber made his tutors proud when he chatted with the talk show host about his latest tattoo. When David Letterman warned the singer, "Don't go nuts [with the tattoos] ... because more and more you see like the mural, like the Sistine Chapel. It's too much," Bieber cluelessly replied, "I'm not going for the Sixteenth Chapel." Dave's response? "Canadian high school."
Parents Just Don't Understand
Back in 2010, the Biebs must have been living in an alternate universe. When he was asked by Interview magazine about his ideal universe, he replied, "I want my world to be fun. No parents, no rules, no nothing. Like, no one can stop me. No one can stop me." Um, except security.
Did he or didn't he? While a 2010 quote comparing Justin Bieber to the late Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain made its rounds on the Internet, it's never been proven to be legit. Still, is it farfetched to think a big-headed Biebs might have said, "I feel like the Kurt Cobain of my generation, but people just don't understand me?" Never say never!
