Justin Bieber’s latest visit to Ellen DeGeneres aired yesterday. The last time we covered Swaggy, I delivered a rundown of his shenanigans in the past 18 months. Swaggy issued a contrite apology video because he’s probably getting ready to drop a single. As if the general public hasn’t suffered enough already.
Ellen is a fantastic sport, always. She was gracious to Swaggy as he gave her Calvin Klein underwear as a birthday gift. They talked about his ridiculous underwear ads, and Ellen pretended to be impressed. Then Justin’s apology tour took over the conversation:
Why he apologized: “Well it was the first time I was on television for a long time and I just was worried about what people were thinking about me. Like I said last time, I did a lot of things over the past few years that I’m not proud of.” I kinda just wanted to explain myself.”
Leave Bieber alone: “I am a human, right? I think people often forget that, even with their comments and stuff, they think it doesn’t get to me. But it gets to me. Things that people say bother me.”
His upcoming Comedy Central roast: “I think it’s cool to laugh at yourself.”

Before the trainwreck of the past 18 months, Swaggy’s antics hit a brief lull after a another huge round of bad behavior. He gave interviews about how the media bullied him. His manager said Bieber only wants to be “normal.” Then both Swaggy and Scooter Braun figured words were enough to change perception, and Bieber went back to being a nightmare.
Do “normal” young adults endanger the public by driving on sidewalks and drag racing through city streets? Do they abuse flight attendants, blame Mom for the drugs, pout during depositions, and cry over their racism? These are honest questions. I could provide more examples, but we’d be here all day. Bieber doesn’t understand that people don’t treat him normally because he’s a brat. Yes, he’s famous, but his notoriety is his own doing. But to Swaggy, his reputation is everyone else’s fault.
