The 90’s pop geniuses dished up some harsh words for fellow hitmaker The Biebs on Adelaide radio station Hit107 FM during a promo stop for their current ‘Middle Of Nowhere’ 25th anniversary Aussie tour, comparing the pop star and his music to a sexually transmitted disease.
Isaac, Taylor and Zac (who’re now all in their dirty 30’s — feel old yet?) played a game on-air called Who’s Song Is It Anyway?, where they (predictably) had to guess the song title & artist by listening to a few bars of each ditty.
And, after choking out on the much-flogged tune ‘Despacito’ by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, the bros were quick to express their lack of fucks-given.
“Can I just say I’m glad I didn’t know what that was,” one of the Hanson lads said.
“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.”
Then, having had their minds blown during the interview by the factual nugget that most koala’s actually have chlamydia, the lads continued their diss-a-thon by comparing Biebs to one of the iconic Aussie furballs.
“It’s like hanging out with a koala,” they said.“Chlamydia of the ear, it sucks”.
Where’s The Love, guys?
Still, when you think about it, Bieber’s music and chlamydia are both pretty catchy, so maybe Hanson are on the money after all.
