Is it too late now to say sorry?
I can literally only name one song by Hanson ("MMMBop" obviously, and it's still undeniably great), yet they've somehow managed to land an interview in 2017. Cool. They used their platform to trash Justin Bieber and compare him and his music to various diseases. Not cool.
The brothers, who are now in their 30s(!!!), told News.com.au they have no idea what's popular in music right now. The outlet mentioned Bieber's remix of Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi's "Despacito" went No. 1, and the rest is downhill.
“Can I just say I’m glad I didn’t know what that was,” one of the brothers said of "Despacito."
“I prefer not to get any venereal diseases so whenever Justin Bieber gets near me or near my ears ... it’s just ear infections, they’re terrible.”
Since Hanson's interview took place with an Australian website, the topic of koalas came up. Specifically, that most of them have chlamydia, which they found amusing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
“It’s like hanging out with a koala,” one of them added about listening to Bieber's music. “Chlamydia of the ear, it sucks”.
Bieber's response? Probably this...
