Justin Bieber

Videotaped Deposition

Like You've Never Seen Him ... And It's Bad

3/10/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber can be insulting, arrogant, snotty, ignorant and disrespectful ... and all in one sitting -- because that's exactly what he was like during his deposition last week in the lawsuit where his bodyguard allegedly beat up a photog.

TMZ obtained a copy of the entire 4 1/2 hour, videotaped depo ... and it's just unreal.  We've boiled it down to what we think are the best 4 clips.

1.  ARROGANT BIEBER -- He just can't hide his contempt for the photog's lawyer, and it comes out in pretty awful ways.  We put some snippets together and you'll get the idea.  It represents his attitude throughout the depo.

2.  LOVESICK BIEBER -- Selena Gomez is clearly a hot button, because when the lawyer asks about her, everyone goes nuclear.  Bieber eventually rips his mic off and he and his lawyer storm out.

3.  CONTENTIOUS BIEBER -- He compares his interrogation to being grilled by Katie Couric or "60 Minutes."  Simply hilarious.

4.  DISRESPECTFUL BIEBER -- When asked if Usher discovered him, Bieber disses his mentor and says he was actually discovered on YouTube.  The best part ... he clearly was trying to say he himself was instrumental in his success, but instead he says, "I was detrimental to my own career."
Truer words have never been spoken.

Of course people will call him names and try to ignore the fact that this stupid lawyer was asking him the OBVIOUS questions.Beside no matter what he does hes always wrong so why not fully be a jerk cause thats what people want from him, yall wish come true! Lil wayne has done the same attitude but of course hes cool and is not a stupid ******* because hes not bieber.

He is a jerk and I think he should lose his money and fame. He is letting all his fame and money go tohis head. He thinks his Shi* dont stink and he is greater to god. Kids needs to be put in jail and lose it all. Thats why most the kids that get rich at a young age think when they turn 18 they can be bad influences on other kids that look up to them. I won't let my kids listen to his music cus I'm dont want my children looking up to a low life loser.

Both guys are being jerks, the interviewer asking the most random questions that have nothing to do w the topic at hand, he's just looking for an opportunity to piss Justin off and get him to talk about personal things - AND Justin who is being arrogant and ****y like many guys his age. Unfortunately, I can just say oh it's his age when I know he bullies people using his bodyguards like a coward. Ugh.

Yea Justin be a dumb arse and see how far that gets you. If ignorance is are full of it. You need to humble yourself and get over the hype you believe of yourself. Keep acting like this and when...not if but when you do go to jail your tears will only force Bubba to slam into your sweet cheeks that much harder.

A master post of all the GOOD things Justin Bieber has done He often visits children from the Make A Wish foundation, which dedicates to making the dreams of children battling life threatening diseases come true Many of these visits he has asked to make without cameras to make it more special for the kids He is involved and/or supports many charities such as Pencils of Promise, Make A Wish, Boys and Girls Club of America, Project Medishare for Haiti, City of Hope, Musicians on Call, and the Grammy Foundation (read more about this here) He started the Believe Charity Drive which raises money from all of his album sales (which are a lot) to give to each of these charities In total that is $119,2004 for charity (x) He visited victims from the Tsunami in Japan and invited them to his show to give them a break from all the disaster (video) On his 17th and 18th birthday Justin asked his fans to help bring clean water to those in need by donating to Charity Water He donates $1 from each ticket he sells from his shows to Pencils of Promise He donates a portion of all his fragrance sales to charity He donated a portion of his Christmas Album Under the Mistletoe to charity. This album later became #1 in the US with 1,245,000 copies sold. But that’s just in the US He supports WETOPIA, a game on Facebook that helps donate clean water, meals, and other things to people in need just by playing (learn more here) He visited a needy school in Las Vegas which is a school that supports homeless children or children on the verge of being homeless. Justin donated $100,000 to the school for supplies and food plus and additional $100,000 in toys for the kids. To top it all off, in December he went to the school to do an acoustic performance of his #1 album, Under the Mistletoe ( watch the videos here and here) When he cut his hair wich came to a shock to his fans and the media, he auctioned a lock of his hair on eBay for charity. His hair sold for $40,668. (watch video here) He recently joined the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign Justin donated portions of his single Turn To You, a dedication to his mom on Mother’s Day, to Save Bethesda Centre for pregnant teens He donated $10,000 to a food bank in Canada He visited a 7 year old cancer patient who is also a huge fan of his, and made her entire day by singing to her He auctioned his motorcycle off to give money to the Rob Dyrdek Foundation (x) In 2011, he flew out to meet one of his biggest fans, Avalanna Routh who was suffering from a rare brain cancer. In the hospital she was in, she was known as ‘Mrs. Bieber”. After the first meeting, Justin became attached to this little girl and he later flew her out to meet him several times and even made her his ‘One Less Lonely Girl’ in one of his concert. Justin did whatever he could to make this little girl happy until she unfortunately passed away in 2013. (watch a video of Justin and Avalanna here) Apart from all the charity work, Justin also does anything he can to make his fans happy. This includes following his fans on twitter, DMing them, tweeting them, putting out silly pictures and videos for them, and simply interacting with them. At a recent concert in Iowa, Justin went out of his way to give three fans tickets when didn’t have tickets to his show, chatted with them a bit, bought all three of them McDonalds, and later tweeted and followed him after the show. At one of his concerts, fans tried to sneak into his meet and greet and, upon hearing this, Justin told security to let them in even if it meant running late for his show. On the day of his 18th birthday, he stayed in the studio all day to finish his album Believe for his fans Justin is actually not a bad person. He is probably one of the kindest, most charitable celebrities out there. The media likes to break him down based on false and absurd rumors so don’t believe everything they tell you. UPDATE He went to Guatemala and hands on built a school for children in need with the money from his concert tickets He gave a kid with no shoes the shoes off his feet Later he made a video expressing his gratitude for being able to help out and make a difference and bring smiles to children’s faces. (VIDEO) He went out to meet a fan who got into a car accident on her way to his concert and gave her a private show. (VIDEO) He raised over 3 million dollars for the damages in the Philippines and went out to perform or them (VIDEO) He was awarded a star on the Philippine Walk of Fame for his Typhoon Haiyan Relief Effort Justin does enjoy doing these things, it makes him happy. why doesn't tmz post this stuff?

This is ****ing ridiculous. The lawyer was asking the most stupidest questions to him. **** the 'lawyer' was trying to get justin mad and he responded. The lawyer shouldn't have done that. Because the questions were irrelevant to the topic

Why is Ellen taking a deposition, anyway?

Everytime he avoids prosecution his ego grows by leaps and bounds. WHEN he is finally forced to be accountable for his actions and the actions of his staff, THEN we'll see the tears and woe is me! Step into the big house pretty boy! they're gonna LOVE you there!
