On Wednesday’s edition of Three For All on Middays With MFB, Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz discussed the latest celebrity to be ticked off by musician Justin Bieber and tried to differentiate the Canadian pop singer from Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. To listen to the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.
“It’s pretty embarrassing that we’re both on the same wavelength on that. … As soon as we see some Bieber stuff, we’re all over it,” Fauria said.
Bieber and actor Orlando Bloom allegedly got into a fight early Wednesday morning outside of a restaurant on the Spanish island of Ibiza. After Bieber and Bloom exchanged words., the 37-year-old actor is said to have thrown a punch at Bieber.
“How old is Orlando Bloom anyway, isn’t he like 50? … He’s beating up a kid,” Fauria said.
“I’m in favor of anybody who goes after Justin Bieber,” Merloni responded.
Said Fauria: “If two guys needed to be punched, Justin Bieber would be No. 1. No. 2, slowly bringing up the ranks, would be Johnny Manziel.”
Fauria then brought up an online quiz offered on SI.com, which lists quotes that were said by either Bieber or Manziel, and offered the challenge to Benz and Merloni.
The first quote: “I want my world to be fun, no parents, no nothing. Like no one can stop me. No one can stop me.” It was guessed correctly by both Benz and Merloni, who said it was Bieber.
“Is that a song?” Fauria asked.
“I don’t know, it sounds like lyrics,” Merloni answered.
“I don’t think Johnny, for all of his faults, is still bringing Daddy into the picture,” Benz said. “That was the tip-off for me there.”
The next quote: “I can’t hear you. There’s too much money in my [expletive] hands.” This was a challenge for the duo, as both Merloni and Benz incorrectly guessed that Bieber said it.
“Do you see how these two worlds are merging?” Fauria said. “This guy, Johnny Manziel is being compared to Justin Bieber, who no one can stand right now.”
“What if Johnny Manziel has a good year this year, are you going to be OK?” Merloni asked Fauria.
“I might have a Mr. Furious moment like you’re about to have tomorrow. I might just go crazy,” Fauria said. “The guy is becoming irritating. Now when I see stuff like this, it just makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. But he’s not going to have a great year. When he does play, he’s going to make some awesome plays, he’s going to make some plays where you’re like, ‘Whoa, how did he do that, how did he get out of that situation,’ but then he’s going to have so many colossal meltdowns where he’s throwing the ball into the wrong direction, just carelessly just going crazy. That’s more of what you’re going to see with Manziel.”
