Usually when non-British pop stars adopt a British accent, they’re either feigning aristocracy a la Madonna, or they’re battling some inner demons a la Britney Spears circa 2008. But we’re pretty sure Justin Bieber was just fooling around when he decided to conduct an entire interview with Capital FM before his set at Summertime Ball while speaking like a Englishman. All he’s missing is a plate of bangers and mash and a Sherlock Holmes cape and we would have sworn he was born in Jolly Ole London Town.
Once you get past the accent, you’ll be able to focus on what Bieber is actually saying: he discusses the success of his label signee Carly Rae Jepsen, admits that he wants to transition into action and comedy films, and says he has a black belt — “It’s a Louis Vuttoin black belt”. Most horrifying is his confession that he lost a Rolex while in Las Vegas, and that misplacing the incredibly expensive timepiece is even more terrible than you’d think it is since it was a gift. From Selena Gomez, perhaps? If so, he’s going to have to make it up to her with another Staples Center screening of Titanic, this time for the 3-D re-release.
