Justin Bieber Now Cougar Bait?
There appeared to be a cougar loose onstage at Sunday’s American Music Awards.
Presenter Jenny McCarthy, 40, pulled newly single winner Justin Bieber close after presenting him with his award for Best Pop/Rock Album, and planted one on the teen idol’s cheek, before grabbing a handful of his derrière, reports the New York Daily News. Laughing, Bieber played along, saying, “Wow. I feel violated right now.”
“I did grab his butt. I couldn’t help it. He was just so delicious … So little. I wanted to tear his head off and eat it!”
The former Playboy model later joked that a rendezvous with the “Boyfriend” singer would be quite a coup, “Can you imagine how hilarious that would be? That would be the cougar score of the century,” she gushed.
But McCarthy better not get her hopes up too high; Bieber’s recent ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, was spotted beside him later that evening at an AMA industry after party.
Bieber certainly had a lot to celebrate — he also won the coveted top award Artist of the Year, his second time since 2010.
