Chelsea Handler has revealed Justin Bieber was her worst interview ever…by far.
Handler, 40, tells Variety that during each of several times she had now 21-year-old Bieber on her show Chelsea Lately, he flirted with her. Heavily.
“Justin Bieber maybe [was my worst interview], because he was trying to flirt with me and it was so uncomfortable,” she told Variety at the Sundance Film Festival. “Like, that’s his schtick. He would come on and flirt with you and you just felt like a child molester right away. And I didn’t want to feel that way.”
What’s worse, it wasn’t just her he came onto.
“I think he does that with everybody,” Handler said, adding that it didn’t work on her at all. “I was not sexually attracted to a child.”
Wait til you see him coming onto Chelsea in this clip of one of their interviews! It’s cringe-worthy, to say the least.
But, as she told Ronan Farrow in a 2014 interview, there was only so much of Bieber — and celebrity culture — she could take.
“There’s only so many years you can talk about Justin Bieber,” she said. “I don’t care about him and I can’t pretend that I do.”
Handler called him on his flirtation in Bieber’s 2011 appearance on “Chelsea Lately.”
Handler now has a new four-episode documentary series on Netflix called “Chelsea Does,” in which she discusses marriage, Silicon Valley, racism and drugs.
Chelsea Handler Not The Only Older Woman Justin Bieber
It’s not the only time the the Canadian crooner has had eyes for a much older woman. Recently he was said to be hooking up with Kourtney Kardashian, but has since moved on with someone closer to his age, 19-year-old Hailey Baldwin, a model and the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin.
