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.

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

I love his attitude. HAHAHA.

He knows the lawyer defending him is elite representation, commanding millions, whereas the clown asking him questions was probably acquired by the photog through 1 800 hire a lawyer.

I wonder how most would respond to someone who is asking questions in order to "Get them good". Knowing full-well this would end up on a trashy gossip website, how nice would I be? Okay whats the deal with the sound and the light crew? Perhaps it looked like 60 minutes.

He is trying way too hard to be what he considers cool. I will laugh when he offs himself.

It was awful when they kept pushing the Selena questions, they knew just what to say to upset him. That way he seems unstable and easily upset and not in control of his temper. They made it seem like if he answered yes then she would be questioned in the case and he knows that would hurt her to be involved in this. His lawyer should have prepped him for Selena questions. Taught him what and what not to say. This part of the videos made me sick. They went straight for his heart.

To all the people defending this deplorable attitude with takes of charity work; Why do you think celebrities do charity work? Some give a crap. Others, like this no mark do it because they are told to. Scooter Braun and the other hundred managers he has work out the finer details of the hundreds, upon thousands of things he does on his career. Does his attitude give you any sense of empathy?

You gotta put yourself in his shoes. Nobody wants to deal with 'the man', why should he be any different?

sorry, but I would have been worse. Those questions about Selena and Usher were so irrelevant to the situation. They asked knowing they'd get a reaction, and they got it. I would have punched that lawyer right in the face if it was me.
