Yes, you read that headline correctly – JUSTIN BIEBER MADE ANTHONY KIEDIS CRY!!!
Now, if it were the other way around and Kiedis made Bieber cry (due to a punch in the dome or something), that would be understandable. Maybe not socially acceptable, but understandable. So what exactly is the story behind this odd occurrence?
In an interview with Q Magazine, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Red Hot Chili Peppers[/lastfm] frontman, Anthony Kiedis, made a shocking confession about how he was moved by the young pop star’s documentary.
“I sat on an airplane recently, coming from Hawaii to Los Angeles, with [producer] Rick Rubin just across the aisle, watching the [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] movie, Never Say Never,” Anthony shared “I cried twice during that film and I want the world to know that!”
What??? Seriously??? I mean, there’s times where we have no idea what Kiedis is saying, but this seems to be stated loud and clear (well, in print form, but still)! He followed by explaining the scene that really got to him.
“They were doing this very cheesy giveaway of concert tickets to 16-year-old girls,” Anthony said. “The cheesiness didn’t matter — it was the reaction of the kids. When you saw those little girls crying deliriously, I lost it.”
A wonderful Kevin & Bean listener thought it’s be a great idea to have Kiedis talk to Bieber, so this morning came this awesome INSTANT REQUEST!
