David Spade Got So High at Ellen’s Birthday, He Thought She Was Justin Bieber


It’s safe to say David Spade had a good time at Ellen DeGeneres’ 60th birthday party. The comedian told a story about getting high and confusing the talk show host for Justin Bieber at the star-studded bash.

“I got a fallout invite, which is great. And oh, the celebs!” Spade, 53, began during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, February 15. “They were really packed in there like sardines. They were everywhere, and I bother all of them, as you know. I really get in their grill.”

The Saturday Night Live alum mentioned running into Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon, Pink and more stars, before getting into the story about medical marijuana. 

“I was looking to watch [the performers] and there was one of your rapper buddies,” Spade explained. DeGeneres originally assumed he was talking about French Montana.

“Then he whipped out some medical marijuana, you know, and a big rolled up doobie of it,” the Rules of Engagement star said. 

DeGeneres chimed in and said, “Now you’re talking about Diddy.”

“He took a hit — I know all the lingo, he took a pop off it — and then … he looks at me like ‘Huh?’ and I go, ‘Yeah,’” Spade said. “‘Cause I don’t want to be like, a narc, you know? So I get it and of course I take the biggest hit and I cough [for] maybe 40 minutes. Like, classic, stupid, corny, shouldn’t even be in a movie. Then I give it back and I go, ‘Hey, good batch,’ or whatever, I didn’t know what to say. I try to be cool. I go, ‘Is that Hawaiian?’”

Spade continued to say “everything was cool for a second” before the weed hit him, and he decided it was time to go home. 

“My brain just went down and I was like, ‘Hello, darkness, my old friend.’ I was starting to space out a bit, because I was sort of in a half coma,” he continued. “Think I got home, do not remember going home, and I’m still in the same outfit.”

DeGeneres pointed out that while she saw Spade at the party, they “didn’t talk.” 

“I did see you. In fairness, I thought you were Justin Bieber for the first half hour,” Spade quipped. “It’s only because of your haircut! Not what you were wearing, you looked great.”
