Today marks the release of Justin Bieber’s new album Under the Mistletoe – collection of Bieberized Christmas songs featuring some all-star guest appearances from the likes of Mariah Carey, Usher, and Boyz II Men.
To celebrate its release, Bieber sat down on Jay Leno’s couch on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show. (Apparently, he dressed up as Joan Jett for Halloween.) While his late-night patter still needs a little work, he did manage to tell a handful of funny anecdotes during his conversation with Leno.
First and foremost, he discussed his customized Cadillac, which he calls the Batmobile. According to Bieber, the eye-catching vehicle managed to attract at least one unwanted admirer: a police officer looking to give Bieber a ticket for speeding.
In the evening’s funniest exchange, Bieber tells Leno that when he got pulled over, he didn’t know he was driving too fast (he had gone through a construction zone), so when the cop asked him if he knew why he pulled him over, Bieber answered, “Is it because you like my car?”
Check out both parts of Bieber’s sit-down with Leno below.
The other best moment? Right at the beginning of that second part, Bieber talks about failing his driving test the first time he took it. What did he do? Why, he went out in the rain and yelled at traffic for a while! Bieber seems to have taken lessons on coping from this guy.
At the end of the interview, Bieber insisted that Leno try sushi, which he apparently doesn’t like. (Is this a running bit on The Tonight Show? It seems profoundly unfunny enough to be one.) Bieber had a plate of sushi brought out, and the bit ended with the two of them eating. There wasn’t a joke or a gag or anything. It was just two guys eating with their hands. Hooray?
What did you think of JB’s visit to The Tonight Show? Is he getting better? And will you be picking up a copy of Under the Mistletoe today? Sound off in the comments!
