Justin Bieber didn't make any talk show appearances on Thursday, Jan. 23, but his presence was felt.
Earlier that day, the "Beauty and a Beat" singer give late-night host's the perfect material for their opening monologues after he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, operating a motor vehicle with an expired license and resisting arrest without violence. Comedians Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon poked fun at the pop star's bad boy behavior on their respective TV programs.
"Just when the streets are finally safe from Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach early this morning...and he's in trouble with his grandparents for not stopping by to visit while he was in town," Kimmel cracked on ABCs Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "No word yet on whether Justin will be charged with a felony or a misde-bieber. But that is pending."
Kimmel then referenced disgraced politician Rob Ford, saying that Bieber "admitted to police that he drank alcohol, smoked pot, and took prescription drugs that night. Which, I think that's may have just been his way of announcing that he's running for mayor of Toronto."
"He failed a field sobriety test. Well, of course he failed a field sobriety test—the kid's pants are halfway down around his ankles! How's he supposed to walk a straight line?" Kimmel, 46, quipped.
"Justin was booked, and then he had a big event, a major life milestone: he took his very first mug shot! There you go. That's the smile of a boy who does not need to call his mommy for bail money."
Kimmel then wondered, "I wonder where it all went wrong for Justin Bieber? Just a few years ago, he was a cute little kid with a bowl haircut. Now he's a drunk-driving, egg throwing, drag racing hooligan."
Fallon, 39, went a bit easier on the Canadian crooner. "Poor guy. I don't know. He's in some trouble, man. He was arrested today in Miami for drag racing and drunk driving in a rented Lamborghini, which is pretty surprising when you hear that the only race car he'd been in before that was his bed," he said on NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. "He's facing a pretty stiff penalty. They're saying he could get up to two years of being his own neighbor, which is just awful. It's just awful. You don't want that."
"I don't know if I'm looking at a mug shot or a Proactiv commercial," he joked. "He's so excited to be arrested!"
