Canadian pop star Justin Bieber signed himself up for this.
After begging Comedy Central to be roasted, the 21-year-old was subjected to some of the harshest barbs ever thrown at him. Celebrities in the roasting line-up included Will Ferrell (as Ron Burgundy), Kevin Hart, Ludacris and Dave Chappelle, who let the singer have it.
Here are some of the best Biebs jokes of the roast:
"I'm proud of you. You have it all. You literally are a guy who has it all — except for respect, love, friends, good parents, and a Grammy." - Chris D'Elia
"The Brazilian prostitute that claimed she was with Justin told the news that he was well-endowed. And that prostitute would know because so was he." - Ludacris
"Justin Bieber wants to be black so bad, he’s actually seen Kevin Hart’s movies in theatres." - Ludacris
"Justin's Canadian. He's actually considered American, because no Canadian has ever been this much of an asshole." - Kevin Hart
"You are the King Joffrey of Pop." - Jeffrey Ross
"Justin Bieber, the man. Why are you here? ... You are about to get f**ked harder than Orlando Bloom f**ked Selena Gomez." - Chris D'Elia
"This kid has spunk, moxie, and probably a few other STDs." - Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy
"Lately a lot of people have been pointing their fingers at you -- and those are just lesbians showing the barber how they want their hair cut." - Jeff Ross
"You gotta give it up for Justin. He started from the bottom and he's still a bottom." - Hannibal Buress
"Selena Gomez wanted to be here, but she’s dating men now. Is it true you dumped her because she grew a moustache before you?" - Jeff Ross
After the roast, Bieber apologized for his antics (public urination, reckless driving, vandalism) over the past several months:
"I turned a lot of people off over the past few years, but I know I can still turn out good music and turn everything all around,” said Bieber. "I've lost some of my best qualities. For that, I am sorry. I'm looking forward to being someone who you guys can all look at and be proud of."
Words can't describe how proud I am of this boy, he is finally growing and moving onto better things in his life. pic.twitter.com/D4K0vsJ8Vy— he follows me ♛ (@CaringBiebur) March 16, 2015
