The past few years have been, well, a roller coaster for Justin Bieber, so ahead of his Comedy Central roast next month, we’re looking back on some of the moments that may become fodder for the big night. Last month, Justin appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’s show to explain why he wants to get roasted so badly, saying, “I’ve done some things that might not have been the greatest . . . It’s just cool to be able to laugh at yourself.” Since then, it’s been announced that Kevin Hart will host the roast, which will be taped on March 14 before airing on March 30. In the meantime, prepare for all the jokes with a look at some of the memorable Justin moments the roasters might mention, including everything from those Calvin Klein ads to his recent apology video.
The January 2014 arrest: Justin was arrested for drag racing and suspicion of DUI, and his smiley mug shot quickly went viral.
The deposition video: In March 2014, TMZ released clips from Justin’s deposition videos. The deposition was linked to a lawsuit where he was being sued after his bodyguard allegedly assaulted a photographer, and in the videos, Justin seems more than a little disinterested.
The Michael Jackson comparison: Justin left jail sitting on an SUV in Miami on $2,500 bail, and in a side-by-side Instagram photo, he compared himself to Michael Jackson, writing, “What more can they say.”
The “F*ck Bill Clinton” comment: TMZ obtained a video of Justin peeing into a bucket in the back of an NYC restaurant, eventually spraying a Bill Clinton photo and saying, “F*ck Bill Clinton!” He later reached out to the former president to apologize.
#LoserKeepsBieber: During the men’s hockey semifinal of the Sochi Olympics, Team USA played Team Canada, and a Chicago billboard added new stakes to the game with its #LoserKeepsBieber billboard.
#DeportBieber: Following Justin’s January 2014 legal troubles, there was a petition to deport him, which the White House responded to, saying, “Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one.”
The on-and-off Selena Gomez relationship: Justin and Selena broke up and got back together multiple times over the last few years, and that’s sure to prompt a few comments during the roast.
The Miranda Kerr-Orlando Bloom triangle: In August 2014, Justin and Orlando Bloom were caught on camera getting into a heated argument in Ibiza, Spain, reportedly because Justin made a derogatory comment about Miranda Kerr, Orlando’s ex-wife.
The many shirtless selfies: Because there are just so many.
The racist joke: After video was released of a young Justin telling a racist joke, the singer issued a formal apology, saying, “As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was okay to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance.”
The graffiti controversy: In November 2013, Justin faced vandalism charges after paparazzi photos captured him tagging the former Hotel Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The city had reportedly given him permission to graffiti a site in the city’s Olympic Village, but not elsewhere, and he was spotted tagging other locations.
The egging incident: Justin pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism in July 2014 for hitting his neighbor’s house with eggs. He was sentenced to two years probation, and he was ordered to pay $80,900 in restitution.
The go-to photo face: The singer definitely has a signature facial expression when it comes to posing for pictures — eyebrows raised, no smile.
The Great Wall of China pictures: Justin made headlines in Fall 2013 after he was spotted being carried up the Great Wall of China.
The Fashion Rocks stripping situation: Justin was booed when he stripped on Fashion Rocks, a fashion- and music-themed live TV special. He didn’t respond to the negative attention, instead quickly stripping off his clothes because he doesn’t “feel comfortable” unless he’s just wearing his Calvin Klein underwear.
The monkey issue: German customs officials seized a capuchin monkey from Justin in March 2013 after he reportedly tried to bring it back to the US without permission.
The mustache phase: The singer grew a wispy mustache, and eventually, Justin shaved it off — capturing the whole process with an Instagram video.
The Brazilian girl’s selfie: In late 2013, a Brazilian woman filmed Justin sleeping, then came forward to dish about her time with him, saying they slept together and “he’s well-endowed.”
The Calvin Klein ads: There were some mixed reactions to Justin’s Calvin Klein ads, but everyone could agree on one thing — SNL’s parody of Justin’s ads was hilarious.
His response to the Photoshop rumors: Following buzz that his Calvin Klein ads might have been altered, Justin posted a picture of himself wearing just a towel, writing, “Photoshop lol.”
The apology video: The singer took to Facebook in January to share an apology video, saying he doesn’t want to come off as “arrogant or conceited” or be judged for how he’s “been acting the past year and a half.”
