As one of the MOJO Radio hosts astutely points out, Bieber has officially entered the "I'm taking myself way too seriously" phase of the fame cycle.
The beef started when the interviewer compared Bieber to Justin Timberlake. Obviously offended for being compared to one of the most talented and successful pop artists of all-time, Bieber replied by saying “Man, that’s crazy because our voices sound nothing alike...I mean, I'm not trying to sound like anyone. Saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment. ... I think if you were to say 'I heard some Justin Timberlake-esque things in your sound,' I would take that as a compliment."
Things really got heated when the DJ brought up "One Direction." When jokingly if asked he was nervous about a "One Direction" member going after his mom, Bieber snapped back by saying "Worry about your mom, bro." He hung up shortly after.
OH SH*T. Tough guy Biebs-man hittin the streets. Highlights of the interview are at 3:10 and 6: 35.
