Yikes. Apparently, Justin Bieber wasn’t very happy with Morgan Stewart from Rich Kids of Beverly Hills calling out his Coachella performance with Ariana Grande, where many fans believed he was lip-synching. He took to Twitter to call her out after Morgan, 30, addressed the performance on Nightly Pop, her late-night talk show. Check out the video above to see what Morgan had to say.
His surprise appearance at the festival was Justin’s first time performing in about two years, and other people on Morgan’s show gave him a pass. But the host was more critical as a clip of the performance played, and Justin, 25, was not happy with Morgan for her comments. “@Morgan_Stewart just saw a video of you ripping me to shreds saying I was lip-[synching],” he first tweeted about the topic on April 24. “They played the song and I just sang over top of it … regardless, why spend your time tearing people down[?] It’s people like you that are bullies at school that are making kids suicidal.”
The performer later added, “@Morgan_Stewart imagine if you spent even half the time you spend laughing at other peoples expense actually building people up and encouraging people how much positivity you could bring. What hurts about this is the fact that you have a platform to make a difference.”
The singer continued in subsequent tweets, “And rather than being positive you belittle people. Think about how awesome it felt for me to be on that stage after being away for so long the excitement and joy it gave me doing the thing I love the most, I sang to backtrack like most cameos do this is a normal thing, and rather than try and make people feel accepted and loved you find things to pick apart like the world isn’t full of that already.
Justin concluded, “We can find something negative to say about anything or anyone. When are we gonna be the kind of people that find joy in adding value to one another and not tearing each other apart … ”
To be fair, though, Morgan was far from the only person who called out Justin for his apparent lip-synching. “Did Justin Bieber really come out to lip-synch to his own song? Lmao way to bring the energy down, mate,” one person tweeted. Another wrote on the social media platform, “Oh …… Justin Bieber …… lip [synching] at Coachella …….. why …… why …… oh no.” Do you think Justin will call out anyone else for their commentary?
