Justin Bieber - Justin Bieber Ribbed By David Letterman Over New Tattoo
When Justin Bieber agreed to appear on the David Letterman show last night (June 21, 2012), he probably wasn't expecting to be on the receiving end of a lecture about his new tattoo. To celebrate the release of his 'Believe' album, Bieber had gone out and got himself inked with the album title across his arm. And you could tell that it was a fresh one because when Letterman decided to grab hold of it - obviously not an owner of any tattoos himself and oblivious to the pain he was probably causing, Bieber was in obvious pain. "Hey - this is brand new!" shouted Bieber.
Justin jokingly referred to Letterman as 'gramps' as he refused to give up on the lecture, after asking him if it was the last one that he was going to get. Bieber remained non-committal, explaining that he'd got the tattoo to celebrate the important release of the album. In an attempt to get one over one him, Letterman continued, asking him if his mother approved. "Has your mother got tattoos?" he asked, at which point Bieber shook his head. He then asked "has your father got tattoos?" and his argument fell down at that point, as the 'Baby' singer said that yes, he has.
Letterman was not prepared to give it up though and finally had the last laugh, when he warned Bieber that he shouldn't get covered in murals, like the Sistine chapel. Bieber's response? "I'm not going for the Sixteenth Chapel look." Oh dear.
