Hanson calls Justin Bieber’s music ‘chlamydia of the ear,’ seem unclear on how chlamydia works
Here’s a rude thing: Hanson — of “MMMBop” fame — ineloquently compared Justin Bieber’s music to a sexually transmitted disease during an appearance on an Australian radio program.
On Monday, the band visited Adelaide’s hit107 studio to chat about their Australian tour and play a round of “Whose Song Is It Anyway,” in which guests listen to a music clip and must guess the artist behind the song.
The conversation turned to Bieber after the Hanson brothers failed to identify “Despacito,” the Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee song on which Bieber guests.
Turns out, the Hanson brothers aren’t huge fans:
Hanson brother 1: “I prefer not to get any venereal diseases. Whenever Justin Bieber gets sort of near me or near my ears…It’s just, ear infections they’re terrible.”
Hanson brother 2: “Chlamydia of the ear. It sucks.”
This is, perhaps, an unfair comparison coming from a band who’s only claim to fame is a song with few actual words in its chorus. This is also not how chlamydia works.
Take this insult back to the drawing board, Hanson.
