Justin Bieber - Justin Bieber Offended By Timberlake Comparison

Justin Bieber ended a telephone interview with a radio show host after his music was compared to that of Justin Timberlake's.

Bieber seemed to be annoyed that the 'Mojo in the Morning' presenter had mentioned how similar the style of his track 'Boyfriend' is to the music of Timberlake's - who had a hit as part of the group 'N Sync with 'Girlfriend'.

He responded: ''Man, that's crazy because our voices sound nothing alike. I mean, I'm not trying to sound like anyone. Saying I sound like someone else is not really a compliment.

''I think if you were to say I heard some Justin Timberlake-esque things in your sound I would take that as a compliment.''

The 18-year-old pop star then went on to mirror a comment his manager Scooter Braun recently made about the frequent comparison.

He continued: ''Justin Timberlake is definitely really talented and is similar because he's white and he's singing pop, R&B. I think we both have the type of edge. I definitely want to have my own lane and not be compared. But I think he is super, super-talented.''

The questioning came to an abrupt end when Mojo asked whether he was worried about One Direction's Harry Style's dating his young mother. After the host revealed that his own parent had passed away, Justin disconnected the call.

He retorted: ''I don't think you should worry about me - worry about your mum, bro.''
