Justin Bieber Arrogant and Smug In Deposition
It looks as if all those stories about Justin Bieber being a total brat are true judging from the just-released video of his deposition that was taken last Thursday at a law office in Miami.
His deposition was obtained by TMZ. The pop star shows nothing but contempt for the lawyer questioning him about an incident last June when his his bodyguard allegedly beat up a photographer.
Bieber said to the lawyer, "Guess what? Guess what? I don't recall."
The lawyer said, "Why don't you listen to what I have to say first?"
"I don't have to listen to anything you have to say," replied Bieber.
His arrogance was on full display.
"I didn't hear your response. Again sir," said the lawyer.
"You know I didn't, I didn't, I didn't finish," said Bieber.
"I'm sorry," the lawyer responded.
"Oh really? You didn't want to interrupt?" asked Bieber.
He was so smug that at one point he winked at the camera. He also pretended to be dozing off. And when asked a question about his on again-off-again girlfriend, Selena Gomez he really lost it.
The lawyer asked, "Have you ever talked with Selena Gomez and discussed your feelings about paparazzi with her?"
Bieber repeatedly stated, "Don't ask me about her again. Don't ask me about her again. Don't ask me about her again!"
Bieber got so fed up that he even stormed out.
The deposition was a hot topic on The View.
Whoopi Goldberg said, "This is how you learn. You don't learn if people don't let you fall down and make mistakes. You don't like the behavior he's doing, it's going to catch up with him."
Bieber responded when he was asked about his mentor, the singer Usher, who discovered him on YouTube when he was just 13 years old.
The lawyer asked, "Do you know an individual entertainer by the name of Usher?"
"Yeah, Usher. That sounds familar," said Bieber.
"Isn't it true that Usher was instrumental in starting your career?" asked the lawyer.
Bieber replied, "I think I was detrimental to my own career."
He was obviously tyring to say he was instrumental to his own success, but he really flubbed it.
Umbrellas blocked the pop star as he left the lawyer's office. But these words might come back to haunt him: "I think I was detrimental to my own career."
