In case you missed it, the most viral clips of the Kevin Hart hosted Saturday Night Live were the fake ads parodying Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein spots. Kate McKinnon played Bieber and basically emasculated the guy on a monumental scale, satirizing Bieber’s attempts to look like a sexy, tough BIG BOY.
And how did Justin Bieber respond? By throwing a tantrum? By crawling back into his kiddie bed and crying? By telling Lorne Michaels and the SNL crew to go f**k themselves? Or by breaking into the SNL studio and urinating in their mop buckets?
No, actually. It turns out, Justin Bieber MIGHT actually have a sense of humor about himself.
It’s not much of a response, but it demonstrated that Bieber is a bigger man than we might have previously believed. It means that he at least acknowledges his public perception and can actually laugh about it, a little. Maybe.
Either that, or he was impressed with the package that McKinnon was packing in those Calvins and thought to himself, “Yeah, that’s about right.”
