Question: But I wasn’t going to ask you that?

Bieber: Oh, you didn’t have to.

Question: Right, I was just going to ask you how many times a day does someone ask you about Justin Bieber?

Question: What’s your favorite song of his? Do you have one?

Bieber: His new stuff is pretty catchy. I don’t have a favorite song, but people tend to, every time I’m walking through the clubhouse and Cookie (Carlos Carrasco) is feeling a little frisky or whatever, he’ll start humming “Baby” and stuff like that. All the guys like to have fun with it and I play along with it. It’s a good time.
