Justin Bieber's Birthday: Top 10 Roastable Bieber Bloopers
Forget the cake and candles — here's what the singer can expect to be served during his upcoming Comedy Central Roast.
Justin Bieber will be celebrating his birthday a bit differently this year.
Though the singer turns 21 years old on March 1, his birthday celebration won't take place until the end of the month when Comedy Central gifts him with the much anticipated #BieberRoast.
Bieber previously mentioned that he'd wanted Comedy Central to roast him for years, jokingly tweeting: "They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard. … Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it's happening."
On March 30, his wish will become a reality, and the pop star has revealed he's more than ready to take on the heat. "I've done some things that might not have been the greatest," he said on Ellen, explaining why he willingly agreed to be the network's next roastee. "I just want to be able to laugh about it and kind of just own up to some of the things."
Below are 10 public blunders the 21-year-old can expect to revisit during his upcoming roast.
1. Public Bathroom Break
In 2013, TMZ released footage of Bieber publicly urinating in a janitor's mop bucket at an unknown restaurant in New York City. At the end of the video, filmed by one of his friends on the scene, the singer can be seen using a bottle of cleaning liquid to spray a framed photo of former President Bill Clinton hanging on the wall, yelling, "F— Bill Clinton!"
2. The Anne Frank House
Bieber visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and was highly criticized for the message he left in the museum's guest book. "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl," he wrote. "Hopefully she would have been a belieber."
3. Paparazzi Attack
While in London for a concert, the singer, held back by a bodyguard, lashed out at paparazzi and threatened to "beat the f—" out of them. Bieber later tweeted in response to the incident: "Ahhhhh! Rough morning. Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me…"
4. Bieber's Pet Monkey
Bieber attempted to bring his pet monkey, reportedly gifted to him by record producer Mally Mall, with him across international borders when he stopped by Germany in March 2013. The monkey was quarantined at a Munich airport after the singer failed to provide proper paperwork for the animal to be in the country.
5. DUI Arrest

The pop star was arrested in Miami Beach after he was caught drag racing in a residential area at 4:13 a.m. Charges included DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired driver's license.
6. Egg-Throwing Case
Bieber was charged with misdemeanor vandalism for throwing eggs at a neighbor's home in mid-2014. The singer was ordered to pay $80,900 in damages, serve two years on probation and complete five days of community labor as well as a 12-week anger-management program. Comedy Central recently poked fun at the incident in a roast promo, in which Bieber himself was egged.
7. Marijuana Scandal

TMZ first released photos of Bieber allegedly smoking marijuana amongst friends at an intimate party inside a Newport Beach hotel room in January 2013. Later in the year, another photo of the pop star smoking emerged on social media, though sources close to him claimed that the photo (pictured above) had been doctored.
8. Selena Gomez
Bieber's on-again-off-again relationship with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez received public attention for years and was most recently put under the spotlight with the release of Gomez's single "The Heart Wants What It Wants," believed to be about her rocky relationship with Bieber.
9. Racist Jokes
Leaked videos of a teenage Bieber making racially insensitive jokes and repeated use of the N-word sparked anger from the public last year. In one of the videos, the singer was captured changing the lyrics to his song "One Less Lonely Girl" and crooning "If I kill you, I'll be part of the KKK, and there'll be one less lonely n—."
10. Calvin Klein Controversy
Campaign photos of Bieber as the new underwear model for Calvin Klein came under scrutiny for allegedly being digitally altered, though Bieber's side denied all claims that the photos were retouched or photoshopped in any way. Saturday Night Live recently parodied the advertisement, and it's likely that Comedy Central will take a jab at it next.
