In the new footage, a 14-year-old Bieber looks into the camera and sings a racist parody of his hit “One Less Lonely Girl.” He repeats the line “one less lonely n—-r,” laughing. “There’s gonna be one less n—-r/if I kill you/I’ll be part of the KKK,” he sings.
TMZ released the footage, saying Bieber and his team want the video made public “because he wants to own what he did.” The website reports that the singer, now 20, told mentors Usher and Will Smith of the videos and that he immediately regretted making them. Usher “took him into a room and showed him historically racist videos to drive home how hurtful these words can be,” according to TMZ.
EW’s requests for comment from Bieber’s reps were not immediately returned.
