On this route, though, the duo have developed better chemistry and Bieber turned up the charm as they talked tatts, got chased by paparazzi and sang their hearts out (“Never Say Never” and Purpose tracks “What Do You Mean” and “Sorry” all get a blast).
The Canadian pop singer admitted to crying in The Notebook (“I’m an emotional guy, man”) and their friendship blossomed briefly into a bromance when Corden cranked up Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic.”
In a scene that could be an outtake from the upcoming Zoolander 2, Bieber offered to take Corden clothes shopping in Beverly Hills. It’s all a set up for Corden to dress like his guest, and for Bieber to emerge in a ridiculous outfit selected by his host.

Corden also probed the heartthrob for his thoughts on his nude photo being leaked online. “It definitely felt, like, really invasive,” Bieber explained. “It’s funny to joke about it now because what else can you do…when I first saw the picture, it was covered, it had censorship on it. I thought, 'oh my god, I could have just got out of the water. I could have had shrinkage.' I finally find the unedited thing, and I’m still pissed because there’s shrinkage.”
