Justin Bieber’s starting to feel the payback as his Comedy Central Roast draws near. In the first promo released by the network via Facebook on Tuesday, Feb. 17, the 20-year-old singer gets eggs pelted at his shirtless bod.
“Watch Justin Bieber learn how poor, defenseless houses feel. The#BieberRoast premieres March 30,” the network shared, referring to Bieber’s EggGate scandal.
Back in January 2014, Bieber’s Calabasas, Calif., home was raided by cops and his cell phone was confiscated following a neighbor’s complaint that he had egged their home and caused up to $20,000 in damages. At the time, Bieber was not arrested, but his pal, Lil Za, was arrested for felony possession of ecstasy and OxyContin.
After reviewing the case and video footage taken by the neighbor, Selena Gomez’s on-again, off-again love was charged in July 2014 with misdemeanor vandalism and forced to pay his now former neighbor $80,000 in restitution and perform community service.
The promo for the upcoming roast, which will be hosted by Kevin Hart, is just the beginning of what’s in store for Bieber, who has a bevy of bad-judgement moments under his belt. The former YouTube star’s been accused of reckless driving, spitting on neighbors, smoking marijuana, underage drinking, peeing into a mop bucket and defacing a picture of Bill Clinton, vandalism, and has one mugshot to his name after being arrested on suspicion of DUI, to name a few.
Hart told Ryan Seacrest during a radio interview on On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday that he’s going to “smash” the “Boyfriend” singer. “It’s going to be a tough day for Biebs,” Hart admitted. “The good news is that he knows I love him. The good news is that he knows I’m a real friend, so it’s no-holds-barred. I get to let loose. It’s going to be dope.” Fellow comedians Chris D'Elia and Jeff Ross have also signed on to the special.
Bieber, for his part, is okay with getting completely roasted. While chatting with Ellen DeGeneres he explained he agreed to do the roast because he “thinks it’s cool just to be able to laugh at yourself.”
“I’ve done some things that might not have been the greatest,” he explained. “I just want to be able to…own up to some of the things.”
Bieber’s roast will air on Comedy Central on March 30.
