Although it’s been six years since Charlie Puth made a remark about Justin Bieber on stage, for the latter, it’s never a forgive and forget case–even if it’s just a joke.
On Monday, the singer pranked Charlie Puth by jokingly confronting him for yelling “F**K you, Justin Bieber” in a 2016 concert.
In the clip, Bieber was hanging out with Kid Laroi when he was handed a video call with Puth on the other end. After they both exchanged pleasantries, Bieber chipped in the diss. “We never really got to talk about just like years ago when you said ‘F— you’ on stage to me.”

This was hilarious to Puth, who started laughing. However, Bieber said, stoned-faced. “I don’t think it’s hilarious, to be honest.”
“What, you’re talking about that s— from six years ago?” Puth replied. “That was like a f—ing…that was a joke.”
Although the singer started to defend himself, Bieber maintained his stance.” I know, but it hurt my feelings.” However, Laroi was laughing and covering his face in the background.
“Bro, I was being facetious,” Puth said. “I was being completely sarcastic. I also can’t tell if you’re joking right now.”
Bieber eventually eased in and began to laugh. This revealed to Puth that he was pranking him all along.
This event happened during a concert in 2016 when Puth was performing “We Don’t Talk Anymore” with Bieber’s ex, Selena Gomez.
As he performed, he stopped briefly and yelled, “F— you Justin Bieber.” This caused a rousing reaction from the audience.
Shortly after, Puth apologized in a couple of tweets he put out, explaining how the comments were meant to be a joke.
“Hey everyone. I feel like I need to clear something up,” he wrote, as reported by MTV. “What I said at the concert last night about Justin was meant to be a joke. However, the way it was said, the mid-song did not sound like one. I am a massive @JustinBieber fan, and I have nothing but great things to say about him and his music always.”
Other Times He Has Addressed It
The “Light Switch” singer also spoke about the incident again in November 2017. In a podcast with the Bizarre Life, he explained that he regretted making that comment and has settled things with Bieber.
“There may have been a lot of emotion that night, a lot of thoughts going through my head and maybe just, sort of, I shouldn’t have said that. It’s not fair to him,” he said, per Teen Vogue. “We’ve come across each other since then, and he posted that he liked my song ‘Attention’ on his Instagram, so we are good.”
Bieber’s New Documentary
In a documentary titled “Justin Bieber: Our World,” the singer’s massive performances in 2020 were detailed.
Directed by Michael Ratner, it’s an excellent mix of his return to the stage after a three years hiatus and the lead-up to planning the show during last year’s covid period.
There were also plenty of self-shot montages of JB and his wife as they eased into their relationship as husband and wife.
In the documentary, he admitted his desire to start a family. One of the topics that crept in during their morning walks was kids and when to start having them.
Justin tells his surprised wife that he’s ready to start having kids. “Do you have an intention for 2021?” his wife asks, which elicits a very personal response from the pop star.
“My intention for 2021 is to continue to set goals and have fun while doing them. Make sure I put my family first… and hopefully we squish out a nugget,” he finishes with a mischievous look. “Uh – in 2021!?!” Hailey asks inquisitively. “The end of 2021? We start trying?” He replies. “I don’t know. maybe,” his wife understandably says. “We shall see.”
