Justin Bieber took a u-turn last year but we never took him serious until his roast on Comedy Central last weekend.

The Bieber we saw getting roast on Comedy Central is a far cry from the one we saw over the last few years.

With stars including Kevin Hart, Martha Stewart, Snoop Dogg, Shaquille O’Neal, Ludacris, and Jeffrey Ross.

“Tonight we’re gonna do what his parents and the legal system should have done a long time ago,” Kevin Hart said. “We’re about to give this boy an ass-whoopin’ that he deserves.”

In his defense, Justin Bieber says that he has turned a new page in his life and career.

“I turned a lot of people off the past few years,” the pop star said. “There was no preparing me for this life. I got thrown into this, 12 years old. There are moments I’m proud of and things I’ve done that don’t define who I am. I look forward to being someone you’re proud of. … I’m excited to see what’s next. You have my word — I will not end up broken, pathetic, bitter or sitting on someone else’s roast. I’m at a moment of change. This is a new day.”
