On Sunday night, Lady Gaga arrived at the Grammy Awards in a giant egg. Her stylist, Nicola Formichetti, explained that the star was “incubating” for her performance later that night. But fellow Grammy performer [artist id=”3187077″]Justin Bieber[/artist], for one, didn’t really get what the point of it was.
“People say it’s artistic and stuff. I’m just like, ’You’re an egg,’ ” he said about Gaga’s over-the-top Grammy arrival when he stopped by “Chelsea Lately” on Monday night. “She was probably just trying to save her voice or something. She didn’t want to talk to a lot of people. She was trying to do something creative.”
That wasn’t the only Gaga fashion statement that Bieber was scratching his head at. Recalling an encounter with her infamous meat dress, he explained, “She went for a hug [at the 2010 VMAs] and I was like, ’Oh, let’s hold up on that. You have meat on you!’ I thought both [the egg and the meat dress] were weird.”
Also during his chat with host Chelsea Handler, Bieber mirrored his sentiments about his Grammy loss in the Best New Artist category that he had shared with MTV News on Sunday night. “Yeah. I’m not going to lie. People were expecting me to say something else, but I’m disappointed,” he admitted, while adding, “I’m really excited for [winner Esperanza Spalding]. She worked hard.”
Bieber also was a guest on “Conan” on Monday night, where he further commented on the Grammy loss. “It was definitely disappointing,” he explained. “It’s great to even be nominated and have that — it’s amazing. We’ll get ’em next year.”
In between the serious Grammy talk, the teen star allowed himself to be the brunt of a little sight gag. After Bieber explained to O’Brien that fans throw Sour Patch Kids at him since he once shared that he likes them, he reluctantly dished on a new confection that he enjoys.
“I have a new favorite candy … Promise you won’t tell anyone. You know those marshmallow Peeps?” he announced before a whole bunch of the fluffy sweets were dropped on him.
