One of the wonderful things about living in the year 2014 is that people have finally come around to the concept thatÂ Justin BieberÂ is the worst. For a while there, it was just me fighting waves upon waves of Beliebers who wanted my head on a platter for saying Bieber was anything but a saint, but those days are long gone.
Now not only do normals Â agree with me, butÂ celebrities do too! Gone are the days of diplomatic statements about ‘finding his way’ or ‘figuring out his teen years’ or ‘no comment’, and here are the days of everybody speaking their damn mind. It’s super refreshing and I’m obsessed with it, and I never want it to stop. (At least until Bieber does, which I’m hoping will be sooner rather than later.)
But with that in mind, here are a few of my favorite famous-person responses to Justin repeatedly refusing to pull his head out of his ass. THROW THAT SHADE.
1. Bill Hader
“Justin Bieber showed up with like twenty guys. And every time, backstage is a very small constructed place, he had a guy holding a slice of pizza, a guy holding a Diet Coke. You were trying to fight around all these people to get dressed. Timberlake, it was just him. Heâs a real class act, that guy.”
2. Olivia Wilde
Olivia was another early-adopter, criticizing Justin for roaming London with no shirt on during his ‘worst birthday ever‘ weekend last year.
Bieber, put your fucking shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt.)

She got death threats for that message, which just goes to show you how long ago it was. These days, that’s one of the nicest things you could say about him.
Â 3.Â Jon Hamm
In an interview withÂ Men’s Health, Jon pointed out Bieber as someone who had absolutely no grasp on any real life skills.
“Look at Bieber or whoever. Youâre like, âWhat the fuck, man? What are you doing? Why?â Thereâs no one telling those people no, and itâs a shame.Â Is there a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, âHey, shithead!â You see people in the world and youâre like, âDo you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish?â Life skills are something weâre missing. There used to be a class that kids had to take in high school called home economics, which was cooking and sewing and just sh*t you needed to learn in life.”
Is it just us, or did that quote make him ten times hotter than he ever was on Mad Men?
4. Joel McHale
When Conan O’BrienÂ asked Joel why he thought Justin would’ve egged a house, he answered:
“Because heâs a fucking idiot. I feel like heâs got all those guys around him; heâs just running out of things to do. Heâs so rich and so successful that theyâre like, âWell, what do you want to do?â and heâs like, âLetâs shave a dog, what do you want to do?’”
5. Drake Bell
I mean you knew he’d be on here sooner rather than later, because Drake notoriously hates Justin and has made absolutely no bones about saying it.
“I canât stand that, with a lot of the pop stars, thereâs this idea ofÂ âAre you in our clique? Are you a Direction-er or are you a Belieber? Oh, youâre not in our gang? Then youâre not cool and you need to go in a hole and die. I donât understand it. And whatâs worse is artists like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber donât come out and say, âI love having you as my fans, but you shouldnât be acting this way.â They just eat it all up, and I think itâs repulsive.”
6. Michelle Obama
What she has to say about Justin isn’t as harsh as the other people on this list, but when the First Lady of the United States is having to comment on your parenting (or lack thereof), that’s a good indicator that something’s way off.
“I donât know if it would be advice as much as action.Â I would be very present in his life right now. And I would be probably with him a good chunk of the time, just there to talk, to figure out whatâs going on in his head, to figure out whoâs in his life and whoâs not, you know.”
7. Jon Bon Jovi
In response to the fact that Justin was absurdly late to some of his concerts, so much so that many of his fans had to leave FOR THEIR BEDTIMES before he even arrived, Jon Bon Jovi had this to sayÂ to theÂ London Evening Standard:
“Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new. They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives — or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives. Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliche. It’s really not cool – you’re an asshole. Go to fuckin’ work!”
8. Rainn Wilson
After Justin was arrested for DUI, Rainn tweeted:
â RainnWilson (@rainnwilson) January 23, 2014
Yeah, those were the days. WAIT HOW DID IT COME TO THIS.
9. Seth Rogen
He’s only met Justin a few times, but every single one of them has left a real shithead taste in his mouth:
“Heâs a good example of someone you meet, who you think youâre going to hate him, and then you get to hate him as much as you thought. You meet him, and he meets up to every one of your [bad] expectations of how you hope he will be.”
And there’s way more where that came from.
10. Ellen DeGeneres
Ellen is essentially the sweetest little gift that’s ever come to daytime television, so when she says “he’s askin’ for it” as a justification for Kate McKinnonÂ to keep doing her impression of him onÂ SNL, that’s the same as being cussed out by any other celebrity.
