Seth Rogen on Justin Bieber: ‘Obnoxious, ungrateful. He’s a piece of sh-t’

Seth Rogen

This is a wonderful treat, darlings. I’m writing about Justin Bieber while enjoying the freedom of not posting any Justin Bieber photos! Consider this a day free from the swaggy face, which shall return soon in all its pouty glory.

Most people were disgusted by Justin Bieber’s recent whiny deposition tapes. I wasn’t too surprised because I’ve been saggy-pants deep in Bieber intrigue. Nothing I hear about him shocks me at this point, but a lot of folks were alarmed to see confirmation of the bratty reputation. Seth Rogen wasn’t impressed by Bieber’s behavior at all. Seth tweeted and deleted his feelings, but he discussed the matter on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live show. It wasn’t pretty:

Seth is not team swag:“In my opinion, Justin Bieber is a piece of sh-t. He seems like he’s obnoxious and ungrateful, insincere, and he puts people’s lives at danger and overall he acts like a piece of sh-t.”

On his Bound 2 parody: “I’ve seen both Kim and Kanye since that video came out, actually. And they both think it’s really funny, thank God! I was worried because I’m a big Kanye West fan, like a huge Kanye West fan. I saw him in New York, And [he] pointed to my wife [Lauren Miller], like ‘how come she wasn’t on the motorcycle?’ But he was pleased and humored by the experience.”

[From Bravo's Watch What Happens Live]

Seth speaks the truth. No argument there. Seth decided (later in the episode) to out a bunch of celebrities who have smoked pot with him. The “yes” group includes Paul Rudd, Snoop Dogg, Sarah Silverman (“many times“), and Jonah Hill. Seth also claims to have talked about pot with Barbra Streisand although they’ve never smoked together. The biggest surprise? Seth says that he’s never smoked with James Franco because James isn’t into pot. Really? I find it hard to believe that James and Seth didn’t conceive the Bound 2 parody while high. The guy who has declared his butt is ART does not smoke weed. Huh.

    tell us something we DON’T know Seth

  2. blue marie says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, love Seth Rogen and he’s completely right about Beiber.

    • Tracy says:

      I was watching WWHL when he said this. It was great. I had to rewind and listen a few times.

    • starrywonder says:

      hes awesome

    • ycnan says:

      I love him too. He is super funny and he really is so humble and nice nice nice in every interview.

    • Aurie says:

      He seems full of himself and really arrogant.

      EVERYONE thinks Bieber is a piece of crap… if you remove the preteen/teen girl population, it’s basically 100% disapproval/dislike towards Bieber.

      It’s so easy to make people fawn over you by repeating statements like this. It’s like the whole Jennifer Lawrence list of “acting is stupid” or “Doctors/firefighters/teachers should be paid more than movie stars” or “bullying is so horrible. We need to stand up for each other” or “Love your body. Especially fat girls…everyone is beautiful. Don’t feel the pressure to be thin”.

      Those statements will always have the masses fawning over how great you are. Seth knows it.

      And that time he got angry at the Senators for walking out on him? Dude, you’re not a big movie star. These senators are incompetent, both R + D, (we all know that) and they also DO listen to heads of organizations that speak to these issues. They just don’t care for some non-famous actor trying to be all inspirational.

      • Sandy says:


        What is it about Seth Rogan you don’t like? Thank God someone is actually saying the words “Justin Bieber is a piece of crap,” because you know what, most of Hollywood loves him because they can write stories about his antics, and take pictures, and make money.

        As for his Washington hearing, how about if the Senators DON’T ask Seth Rogan to take a photo with them, and then walk out of the hearing. And what is wrong with someone who has been affected by an issue like Alzheimer’s, which does not get enough attention or, ahem, resources, directed to it, actually using their celebrity to get that attention paid. Meanwhile, if it was the head of Citibank, those same Senators be there kissing those guys asses, because they know where their rice bowl is! There are plenty of people to hate, but seriously, you’re going to hate Seth Rogan for having a soul, and speaking the truth? Wow!

        “And that time he got angry at the Senators for walking out on him? Dude, you’re not a big movie star.”

        So elected officials should only bother with big movie stars?

      • Diana says:

        I always thought he was angry as an ordinary citizen and not on some sort of power trip. Like, you as an average Joe got a hearing in congress to speak about something close to your heart and the people who are suppose to listen because it is their freaking job and because they get paid on your taxes just walk away like you don’t deserve a minimum of cortesy, I’d be pretty mad myself.

      • Peppa says:

        Did Seth Rogen kill your cat or something?? Jeez, the guy is harmless.

      • jaye says:

        He wasn’t angry. If you saw the tweet exchange, the Senator commended Seth for his passionate stance on funding for Alzheimer’s research and Seth thanked him but also asked why he didn’t stay for his speech. Seth Rogan, based solely on interviews I read and viewed is far from arrogant. He seems like a sweet, humble, goofy guy.

      • Nina W says:

        I don’t know the guy, maybe he is full of himself and arrogant, but what I have seen of him and heard from him has mostly been funny and intelligent and I applaud his candor and activism. I’m a fan.

      • Nerd Alert says:

        Aurie, you have no clue what you’re talking about. Seth Rogen is actually quite smart and humble. I’m sure he didn’t piss in your cheerios, so who did?

  3. NerdMomma says:

    It seems like eventually, some of this type of stuff would start to give Bieber pause and make him examine his life choices. But, it won’t. He’ll call Seth a “jealous hater” and chug some sizzurp and that’ll be the end of that.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Sad, but true.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      True. Criticism seems to fuel Bieber’s behavior.

    • mom2two says:

      Yup. This is true and all the little Beliebers or whatever the heck they call themselves will be attacking Seth on twitter for speaking the truth about the guy.
      Not normally a big fan of Seth Rogen but he is spot on about Beiber and I loved how he called the politicians who did not stay for testimony about AD. I might actually like the guy a little more then I used to.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    There’s something about Seth that has always bugged me, but I’m on board with his Bieber opinion.
    As for Franco, I’d imagine it’s too hard to smoke when your head is so far up your own ass.

  5. Jayna says:

    I love love love their Bound 2 video. It’s probably the best thing Seth and James have ever done. Lol

    • Kali says:

      Seth does a better impression of Kim K than Kim K does of someone who can show expression.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      Watching that video, well, I haven’t laughed so much in a long time! I’m surprised Kanye was cool with it though…he doesn’t look like he has much of a sense of humor…at least about himself!

  6. ToodySezHey says:

    Seth Rogen is seriously riding in First Class on the Likeability train.

    Dude seems like an overall decent human being, so rare in Hollywood. And as far Bah Bah Binky Bieber, he speaks the truth. Kid is a roided out, entitled piece of shyt.

  7. Chrissy says:

    Seth’s wife is beautiful!

    • Red32 says:

      I was just thinking that. She is really pretty. Probably closer to Kim’s original face than Kim is at this point.

  8. Darkladi says:

    I love Seth Rogen even more than usual!

  9. msw says:

    I’m pretty sure this is the kind of “keeping it real” attitude Brandi-types ars going for and fail at.

  10. eliza says:

    I have always liked Seth. At least he is not like all the other douchebag celebrities pandering to Bieber and offering their totally “insincere” desire to help that idiotic, entitled brat. At this point I couldn’t care less what Bieber does to himself or his career. I only care that people wise up and stop adding to the losers bank account.

    • Tatjana says:

      I’m not pandering Bieber, but I do feel sorry for him. To be that messed up at 20 is scary. I blame the parents.

  11. Santolina says:

    I admire Seth Rogen and think he’s brilliant, but it’s beneath him to be calling Beiber or anyone else “a piece of sh*t.” I’m glad he removed the tweet.

  12. Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

    Um didn’t Seth and Franco say they were pretty much baked out of their mind the entire time they filmed Pineapple Express?

  13. LilyT says:

    I love Seth, and his wife is smokin

  14. Relli says:

    OMG I did not realize that Seth’s wife is an actress and writer too until one night I was up watching movies on HBO and “For A Good Time Call…” came on. She was really good and the movie was super funny but I was like who is this girl. Who knew! Love Seth and this particular episode of WWHL was great!

  15. Stephanie says:

    Seth called it.

  16. caz says:

    Don’t forget Jon Bon jovi & others have also publicly called bieber out too! Telling it like it is. It’s his own fault.

  17. Nerd Alert says:

    Wow, perpetuate stereotypes much? James Franco has never stricken me as a pothead, mostly because he’s always whining about being authentic and not altering his mind. Not every squinty-eyed asshole is into weed.
