Remember Justin Bieber’s no-goodnik days? Between 2012 and 2014, the now 28-year-old was accused of reckless driving, charged with vandalism for egging a neighbor’s house, arrested for a DUI in Miami, charged with assault and dangerous driving in Canada, and was caught on film saying a bunch of racist shit. After Justin’s 2014 drunk driving arrest, his then-neighbor, stinking rich hard-ass Judge Judy, publicly shit-talked him, telling CBS Los Angeles that a teenage Biebs was doing “a very good job of making a fool out of himself.” Nearly a decade later, 80-year-old Judy tells Access Hollywood that, after that, the Biebs was “scared to death” of her. OK, so he did have some sense!
“He’s scared to death of me,” she told Access Hollywood. “There was a period of time before he grew up — when he was foolish, and doing foolish things.”
Then Judy laughs and claims Justin allegedly had his security alert him every time she was outside, so he wouldn’t accidentally run into her and have to make terrifying small talk:
“I must have said something about it, and then, I understood that he was paying the front door people to let them know when I was there, coming and going, so he wouldn’t have to bump into me,” she said.
This is exactly what Judy said about Justin back in 2014:
“Being a celebrity is a gift,” she told the station. “You could either treat it reverently or you could make a fool out of yourself. And he’s doing a very good job of making a fool out of himself.”
She added, “I think it’s sad. And nobody’s going to remember that he was a marginal singer. But they’re going to remember a young kid who had a chance to have it all and who is blowing it by acting like a fool.”
Here’s Judy’s interview with Access Hollywood. The Justin bit is around the 1:55 mark:
Last year Justin faced backlash after including soundbites of Martin Luther King talking about racism on his album Justice. People called the choice tone deaf and out-of-place. In retrospect, the Biebs should’ve faced his Judy-phobia and asked if he could sample some of her classic one-liners. The album was literally called Justice! How much better would that “Peaches” song be with an intro like, “Don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining”?
