Chelsea Handler Says Bieber Was Her Worst Celebrity Guest
Chelsea Handler had already interviewed so many celebrities in the past. When asked who she thinks stands out as the worst, she gutsily quipped “Justin Bieber!” The talk show host said that Justin had flirted tremendously during the interview which made her uncomfortable and wished that things did not happen that way.
The 40 year old star of Chelsea Does was interviewed by Variety while at Sundance on Saturday, January 23. Chelsea Handler says Bieber was her worst celebrity guest. She said that she had the (dis)pleasure of interviewing Justin Bieber on her former show Chelsea Lately! Chelsea further explained her choice by saying that Justin is just normally very flirty and she was just not keen on the idea of someone as young as Bieber then to be flirting with her. For her, it was not sexy at all and in fact it’s kind of really icky.
During the run of her “Chelsea Lately” show, Handler had interviewed Justin several times. It was way back in 2009 when the very young Bieber made his first interview with Chelsea. A young kid trying to flirt with her was not her idea of being cozy. In the interview with Variety, Chelsea said “Justin Bieber maybe (was my worst interview), because he was trying to flirt with me and it was so uncomfortable. Like, that’s his schtick. He would come on and flirt with you and you just felt like a child molester right away. And I didn’t want to feel that way.”
Chelsea thinks that Justin practically flirts with everybody. When Bieber appeared on the show in 2010, the flirting has leveled up. He even mentioned about a possible date with the TV host several times. When Variety asked whether the flirting tactics of the young superstar have worked on her in any way, Chelsea said, “I was not sexually attracted to a child. Thank you for clearing that up on camera.”
