Recap: Justin Bieber Feels The Heat From Comedy Central's Hilarious 'Roast'

Here's our recap of Comedy Central's 'Justin Bieber Roast.' 

The Justin Bieber roast basically wrote itself. After hogging headlines the past few years for everything from leaving a monkey in Germany to causing $200,000 in damages while throwing eggs at a neighbor's home, the Biebs agreed to let Comedy Central and some of Hollywood's brightest to tear him a new one on his 21st birthday.

After LOLing several times throughout the nearly-90 minute uncensored special, here's a swift recap of the sizzling jokes from each roaster and the chest-clutching finale from Bieber himself.

"Selena Gomez couldn't be here tonight just because she didn't wanna come. I wish I had something better to tell you but I don't. If you gon' deal with a Jenner, I think it would be Bruce." — Host, Kevin Hart

"It's no secret that Justin wants to be black. He loves the black culture. I want you to come to terms that you're not gangster. Accept that. Orlando Bloom took a swing at you. That's not gangster. [Justin's] got a perfume called "Girlfriend." You threw eggs at a house. Gangsters don't throw fuckin' eggs. Snoop, when the last time you threw eggs at a gotdamn house? We don't do that. Justin sang the N-word on a song that was about killin' black people. That's pretty gangster, Justin, I'ma give you that." — Kevin Hart

"He may have just turned 21 but he will always be a baby to me, since babies piss everywhere and never know when to shut the fuck up. I remember i got this call one day, saying 'Collaborate with this little dude who will do anything to get famous' and I was like 'Great! I love Kevin Hart!' — Ludacris

"It's like just yesterday you were discovered on YouTube. Time flies when you're a piece of shit. Justin Bieber's fans are called "Beliebers" because these days, it's considered politically incorrect to use the term 'retards'" — Natasha Leggero

"What kinda bitch eggs his neighbor's house? You cost 20,000 in damages. Imagine the damages you would've caused if you threw like a boy." — Shaq

"For a guy worth 200 million dollars, why do you dress like Sharon Stone in the '90s? You look like Sisqo fucked Peter Pan and then got cast in Orange is the New Black." — Chris D'Elia

"You're about to get fucked harder than Orlando Bloom fucked Selena Gomez." — Chris D'Elia

"Let's get to the reason I'm here tonight which is to give Justin Bieber tips to use when he inevitably ends up in prison. I've been in lockup and you wouldn't last a week. Pay attention. First thing you'll need is a shank. I made mine out of a pintail comb and a pack of gum. I'll show you how later. It's so simple. I found Bubbalicious works best and its' so much fun to say. You see when i did my stretch, all the hoodrats in my cell block wanted to break off a piece of Martha Stewart's ass so I decided some bitch needed to get got. ... from then on, prison was easier than making blueberry scones." — Martha Stewart

"Before I go, here's my final piece of advice. You need to settle down, bring some balance into your life. Find yourself the right gal that she'll have to be someone on your level, someone powerful, and famous and rich. Someone you can smoke a joint with and indulge in the occasional three-way. I'm talking about a player in the boardroom and a freak in the bedroom. So Justin, my final piece of advice is call me." — Martha Stewart

"You are the "King Joffrey" of pop. What's your rap name? Feminem?" — Jeff Ross

"Justin Bieber's asshole is like a movie ticket. It got ripped apart by an Usher." — Jeff Ross

"You so pretty that when the inmates seen your mug shot, they swipe right." — Snoop Dogg

"Let me say this to you, Justin Bieber, JB, DMB - Damn Near Black. Now see, black people, we normally hate when white people try to steal our culture and be like us, minus the discrimination, police brutality and the marching and shit. That was until Justin Bieber came along. We don't mind him smoking weed in public while sagging in the club. Pissing in a mop bucket, drunk driving, living in a mansion with loud music, and hating the neighbors for not welcoming change. Welcome to the family, my nigga." — Snoop Dogg

"Justin, he started from the bottom and he's still at bottom. I don't like your music. I'm not a big fan of it. I listen to some of it. I think it's bad, man. I hate your music more than Bill Cosby hates my comedy." — Hannibal Buress

"People refer to Mister Bieber as a kid or a boy but here's a news flash, gang: he's a man. A full-grown man who works and loves and makes things with his hands. A man who sings songs for 9-year-olds and cuts his hair like a gay figure skater." — Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell)

"What do you get when you give a teenager $200 million dollars? A bunch of has-beens calling you a lesbian for two hours." — Justin Bieber

"I will not end up broken, pathetic, bitter or sitting on the dais at somebody else's roast. But seriously, there was really no preparing me for this life. I was thrown into this when I was 12 years old. Didn't really know what I was a getting myself into. There were a lot of moments I was really proud of and moments I look back and I'm pretty disappointed at myself for. But the things I've done don't define who I am. I'm a kindhearted person who love peoples and through it all, I lost some of my best qualities. For that, I'm sorry but what I can say, I look forward to being someone you can all look at and be proud of. Someone you can smile at and see some of yourself in. Someone close to me once said, 'It's how you rise from a fall that truly defines you as a man.' I'm excited for that challenge and I wanna say thank you so much for taking this journey with me. I'm excited for you to see what's next. Thank you God for your grace and for never giving up on me." — Justin Bieber

Omar Epps Talks New Horror Film 'Trick,' His Vast Acting Roles And John Singleton's Genius

If you came of age in the ‘90s, Omar Epps may eternally be Quincy McCall playing Monica for her heart, or Malik Williams running to regain his full athletic scholarship, or high school student Q romancing a grown-ass nurse with her own apartment (I’m really stuck on that detail as an adult) and trying to avoid Bishop in project elevators. But over the last two decades, Epps has pretty consistently stayed on-screen - small and big - in roles that run the gamut from DJ to doctor, from ballplayer to police officer. He was even the Black person that gets killed in a horror movie in 1997’s Scream 2 (that franchise was thoroughly committed to maintaining slasher tropes). When Brooklyn native isn’t juggling multiple projects, he’s one-half of ‘90s Black couple goals with his wife of 13 years, Total’s Keisha (and she’s still fine). But I digress.

This Halloween, Epps returns to the slasher film subgenre in Trick, the first installment in a new horror franchise from director Patrick Lussier, whom Epps worked with on Scream 2 and Dracula 2000. Epps plays Mike Denver, a small-town detective fighting to stop a serial killer terrorizing the community every year — even though Denver already shot and killed him.

VIBE talked to Epps about the new movie (carefully, so as to not give it all away), choosing vastly different roles over the years, and predicting the future with John Singleton.

--

VIBE: Trick is kind of a full-circle moment for you; it’s been just over 20 years since you were in the last big slasher franchise, Scream. Now, you’re the one chasing the bad guy. There’s not that much we can say without giving the plot away, but talk about what attracted you to the movie and the character.

EPPS: For me, it all starts with the script. I thought it was really entertaining, I thought the role was fun, and obviously the chance to work with Patrick again. We have that trust factor there, I know he’s a really solid filmmaker. And I thought it was something unique, you know as it twists and turns you can’t really figure out what’s going to happen.

And this is one of the first new franchises in (the slasher movie) genre, which seems to be making a comeback.

We’re calling it “slasher noir”, so it’s a call back to that old school slasher movie, but a little more elevated in terms of the story and the plot. And it’s touching on some things I think that can make the mind wander in correlation to where we’re at as a society right now.

The killer’s motivations give you pause to think, for sure. In Scream, they got you up out of there pretty quickly (Epps laughs). Now, instead of being one of the “kids,” you’re the adult trying to solve the problem. You play a police officer who’s very grounded, very logical, so the idea of something paranormal and supernatural really disturbs him as he’s trying to put the pieces together. How did you place yourself in that headspace?

The keyword there is “grounded,” and that was both the challenge and the exciting part, for me, to play this character. He’s someone that, to your point, is logic-based, and he’s looking at everything from a linear point of view in that way. But as things progress, he’s basically someone who loses himself over this case; over trying to figure out what’s going on. I think part of the headspace is you have to be in the moment of that process versus having a  strategy to attack it. You have to be immersed in the moment. And again, working with Patrick, we have a shorthand, creatively, which allowed me to be malleable in that sense, and I think we pulled it off.

Later this year, you also have the movie 3022 coming, a sci-fi thriller that takes the “lost in space” theme further than usual with an extinction-level event that destroys the Earth and traps a crew of astronauts on a space station just...until.

I really love that project; I think it’s a powerful piece that every human being will be able to relate to because it touches on age-old questions: What would you do? Why are we here? It just hits on so many broad themes. And (director) John Suits, man, he did his thing with that. And I think the cast is magnificent. I’m really excited about that one.

We (Vibe and Vibe readers) think of you first as one of the core young Black actors of the ‘90s, but over the years you’ve done such a variety of work between both TV and movies. You’ve done medical dramas, you’ve done procedurals, you’ve done sci-fi, you’ve done rom-com, you even had a moment as a ‘90s video lead. You really don’t have a box, Omar, which is a beautiful thing as an actor, but how have you made your choices?

It’s been a combination of me making choices of things that I connect to, and the blessings that come down and opportunities that come my way. I think every artist is sort of a blank canvas, and no one’s in a box. You’d be surprised at how many actors can sing or rap or dance or how many musicians can act - we’re artists. I’m just thankful to — knock on wood — continue to get these opportunities, because the next path for me is writing, producing and directing.

You’ve dabbled in that a little bit already. Are you working on anything now?

Oh yeah, I’ve got a few things bubbling. I don’t want to jinx them, but we’ve definitely got some things in the works across all those fronts: as a writer, as a producer, as a director.

My favorite roles of yours are Q (Juice) because of nostalgia, and then Quincy McCall (Love & Basketball), but I really loved you as Dr. Eric Foreman (House). I thought you guys were brilliant as an ensemble. Do you have a favorite?

I honestly don’t. For me, they’re all pieces of a bigger mosaic; of a picture, when it’s all said and done, of what will be my career. But there’s nothing like your first, right? There’s nothing like that first experience. So with Juice, that movie and character will always hold a special place in my heart.

And it was such an iconic moment for the culture. When John Singleton passed, I wrote about his work, and how when Higher Learning came out (in 1995), critics said the various characters were too on the nose and stereotypical. But when you view the film from a 2019 lens, it’s almost prophetic. Have you thought about that?

That’s the thing; great storytellers all tap into that same zeitgeist of eternity in terms of the human story. And when you whittle that down to American culture or to Black culture, it’s just one of those genius things. When we were on set filming, we could feel that this was saying something bigger than our parts in it. Now, when you look back on it in 2019, it seems prophetic because it was. It’s not “seems,” it was. Look at where we are in society right now, it’s crazy, but I think that’s a testament to John Singleton and his genius.

So, you worked with Tupac in his seminal role, you worked with Singleton. Is there a person that you still want to work with that you haven’t yet, or is there a dream role that you haven’t had the opportunity to play yet?

I don’t necessarily have a dream role, although, I would love to play Frederick Douglas. But the person I want to work with is Spike Lee. I’ve never worked with him and I don’t know how that hasn’t happened. We were trying to do something a few years ago that didn’t come together, so I’m going to put that back out in the universe because I have to work with Spike.

'Trick' is now in theaters, on-demand, and on digital streaming platforms now. 3022 is expected to hit theaters, on-demand, and digital platforms on November 22nd.

Halle Berry Is #TeamZoeKravitz As Catwoman For Upcoming 'Batman' Film

Earlier this month, it was announced that actress/musician Zoe Kravitz would step into the sleuthing role of Catwoman for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Joining in on the chorus of people that are elated to see Kravitz in this role is fellow Catwoman Halle Berry.

The Oscar Award-winning actress took to Twitter to congratulate Kravitz on her new job, writing “Keep shining queen and welcome to the family!” Kravitz will star opposite Twilight’s Robert Pattinson who’ll play the Dark Knight.

Special shout-out to your new #CatWoman, the eternally graceful & extremely bad ass @ZoeKravitz. Keep shining Queen & welcome to the family! ♥️✨ pic.twitter.com/9YJ2EekcNG

— Halle Berry (@halleberry) October 17, 2019

In 2004, Berry starred as Catwoman in the film of the same name. Directed by Pitof, the movie also starred Alex Borstein, Benjamin Bratt, Frances Conroy, and Sharon Stone. Although the movie wasn't a box office success, Berry said it opened up a world of opportunities in Hollywood.

"Everybody around me said, 'Girl, don't do it. It's going to be the death of you. It's going to end your career.' But guess what I did? I followed my intuition and I did a movie called Catwoman and it bombed miserably," Berry said at 2004's Matrix Awards, per Glamour. "While it failed to most people, it wasn't a failure for me because I met so many interesting people that I wouldn't have met otherwise, I learned two forms of martial arts and I learned not what to do."

A Tekashi 6ix9ine Documentary Series Is In The Works

Showtime is set to debut a new project about Tekashi 6ix9ine.  Supervillain, a three-part limited docuseries produced by Imagine Documentaries, Rolling Stone  and Lightbox, will explore the rise of the New York native.

“The bizarre and complicated rise of Tekashi 6six9ine is a story of our times,” said Vinnie Malhotra, EVP, Nonfiction Programming, Showtime Networks. “Beyond becoming one of the most notorious hip hop artists of this generation, his story speaks volumes of the impact of social media and manufactured celebrity in our society. We’re excited to be partnering with such heavy hitters in the world of music and documentary to bring Supervillain to life.”

The series is inspired by the Rolling Stone article, Tekashi 6ix9ine: The Rise and Fall of a Hip Hop Supervillain, released earlier in the year.

“Tekashi 6ix9ine is one of the most enigmatic music artists of a generation,” said Gus Wenner, President and COO of Rolling Stone. “Rolling Stone is thrilled to work with Showtime and our other partners to bring the gripping story of Tekashi’s meteoric rise to stardom and infamy to viewers around the world.”

Supervillain isn't the only Tekashi-inspired project on the way. Snapchat is working on a doc about the 23-year-old recording artist, and 50 Cent is reportedly producing a biopic about him.

Tekashi, whose birth name is Daniel Hernandez, testified against former gang affiliates in federal court last month in exchange for a lowered prison sentence.  Though it’s unclear when he will be freed, the “FeFe” rapper -- who was facing up to life in prison -- recently signed a record deal worth a reported $10 million.
