Bill Hader talks Justin Bieber's bizarre entourage for 'SNL' gig

Bill Hader talks Justin Bieber's bizarre entourage for 'SNL' gig

By Chris E. Hayner | May 23, 2013 8:52 PM ETt t It's fairly obvious to the world that things have gotten strange in the life of Justin Bieber. Between the fight with his neighbor, his European exploits and even the German monkey situation, the Canadian pop singer has gone through some, let's say, growing pains in 2013.

Perhaps that's why there are some puzzling new details about his February hosting turn on "Saturday Night Live."

While being interviewed on "The Howard Stern Show" May 22, "SNL" star Bill Hader had some interesting things to say about Bieber's time in Studio 8H. According to Hader, "Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. And every time, backstage is a very small constructed place, he had a guy holding a slice of pizza, a guy holding a Diet Coke. You were trying to fight around all these people to get dressed." Really, Justin? One person to hold your Diet Coke and someone else to hold a slice of pizza? Isn't that what tables are made for?

Justin Timberlake, on the other hand, was a different story. Hader looks back fondly on his appearances, saying, "Timberlake, it was just him. He's a real class act, that guy."

Dealing with the added baggage that comes with a host or musical guest is a thing of the past for Bill. With the end of the 2013 season of "SNL," Hader announced he was leaving the show. After eight years on the program, the decision to leave was still difficult. "It got to a point where I said, 'Maybe it's just time to go,'" he says.

Hader will next be seen in "The To Do List," which is directed by his wife Maggie Carey. He'll also return to voice his character in "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2."

You can listen to his interview with Howard Stern below, but as with most things involving the shock jock, the language is very NSFW. (Interview at link.)

Sounds like Bieber lives like rappers do or like Jwhore.

Americans hate young guys but love young girls. Justin Timberlake would still be being hated on if he were Bieber's age, but now that he's older its ok to like him.

I remember when Stern went all bully on Leo Dicaprio being named most beautiful person people magazine during the Titanic era. Shows he just has a hate on for young pretty guys. Its a macho thing and also concern by straight males that these young guys could be competition for women. Very pathetic and transparent imo.

Bieber is a spoiled entitled brat. No wonder Taylor Swift stuck her tongue out, grossed out by Bieber at the Billboard Awards.

r3, you are absolutely correct about the resentment of the young/hot/male. But I don't think Bieber is the best example since he's been piling up so many legit reasons to be disliked.

Well, not all Americans, but I know what you mean. There's a real rednecky attitude in the upbringing of many American males. At its core is deep sexual insecurity, so it does manifest itself in a kind of hate toward good looking young guys. I think part of it is resenting the fact that girls like them, and the other is fear of attraction within themselves.

But yeah, Justin Bieber has gone beyond any of that now that he's become an asshole.

maybe he will run out of his money soon, with so many on his payroll. remember that dude with the crazy pants? he went bankrupt really quick, he had tonnes of people on his over 40-100, can't remember the number but it was ridiculous.

Bieber seems deeply immature and unstable. Where are the adults?? I feel sorry for him that way, esp since any adults are busy freeloading off him. I agree about the stigma and bias against young handsome men, but he is coming off pretty batshit and in over his head.
