Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber has finally spoken out about controversial YouTuber Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast – well, sort of.
Bieber was asked about the podcast in an interview with the Hollywood Fix on January 9 – to which he gave a fairly flippant response.
“Justin, have you had a chance to check out Logan Paul’s new podcast?” an interviewer for the Fix asked.
“This is the second time you’ve mentioned Logan Paul,” Bieber replied with a smile. “What’s your fantasy with Logan Paul? You love that kid, don’t you? You love that kid. You love him!”
While Bieber has yet to speak further on the matter, his lack of a verbose reply could hint at his opinion on the podcast, considering that he shaded the Paul brothers during a vlog in January 2018. The singer appeared to mock the boys’ YouTube intros on a snowboarding trip with YouTuber Christian Beadles – nearly a year before his latest comment on the duo.
“What’s up, vlog?,” Bieber mimicked. “It’s vlog city time, vlog time with your boys Christian and JB. It’s not what you do, it’s who you are.”
Bieber was also asked to appear in a documentary series by YouTuber Shane Dawson in early November of 2018. The celeb never responded to the request, leaving Dawson (and the rest of his fanbase) to lapse in radio silence.
While Paul never got Bieber’s official opinion about his podcast, his show has seen a slew of celebrity guests, with the likes of Drake & Josh actor Josh Peck and comedian Brendan Schaub making appearances, as well as other top YouTubers and internet personalities.
