After Jim Carrey’s bizarre ode to Emma Stone crashed his website on Thursday, Kathy Griffin was inspired to reach out to her significantly younger celebrity crush: Justin Bieber.

“I was so inspired by comic giant Jim Carrey that I’ve decided to pledge my love,” she deadpans into the camera. “So, this is a message for you, Justin Bieber.”
Taking her cues from Carrey’s original video, Griffin describes Bieber as “all the way beautiful” but clarifies that she wouldn’t be willing to tie the knot with him.

“It’s messy, Justin,” she explains. “There’s a distribution of assets -- we would just go steady.”
The nearly two-minute video was posted to Griffin’s official YouTube page on Thursday, Aug. 25. The comedienne tweeted a link to the clip with the message “Ok” in response to a fan's request that she parody Carrey’s “creepy love letter.”

“The sex – woo – it’s gonna be weird,” she jokes in the video. “Anyway, the problem is that there’s an age difference. I’m a lot older than you, Justin Bieber. I’m 29. 39. 49. Just look me up.”
“This isn’t weird at all. You’re the one who’s crazy, Justin,” she concludes with a wink. “Love, Kathy.”
