Glazer: Scribe & Comic Chris Franjola Stick Up for Justin Bieber

041111_justin_bieber_53426pcn_bieberfever20110411132249.jpg?w=544Justin Bieber – fondly known as Biebs – has finally attained a big boy/bad boy status…

Everybody’s seen the news from Florida way where the Biebs got arrested for DUI, resisting arrest, speeding and drug possession, etc., etc..  Outside of this being his official announcement that – I’m a bad ass – nothing much will come of it.  Oh yeah, he also had an expired driver license, a rented $10,000 a day Ferrari and in the passenger seat, a gorgeous young model.

What to make of all this?

The Bieb’s kinda-sortas counterpart – superstar Miley Cyrus – better planned her breakout with her tongue and groove twerk tirade on international television.  Miley needed to make the jump to being an adult star and leave Hannah Montana behind and she did.  Like it or not, Cyrus calculations worked out just fine.

The Biebs, on the other hand, will now be under the Lindsey Lohan microscope, which is not where you want to be. For better and for worse, his mega-million dollar paydays and sense of entitlement handed to him by an adoring public led to this behavior. 

Now the Biebs has entered the Charlie Sheen school of Look at me, Look at me.

The world now anxiously awaits the Bieb’s next run in with law enforcement, drugs or illegal act. 

Hopefully, as was the case with Sheen, this will come to an end soon and the Biebs will go back to singing, dancing and maybe even acting.  That would be nice.

Chris Franjola at Stanford's this weekend

at Stanford’s this weekend

A good pal of Bieber’s, Chris Franjola, is playing Stanford’s this weekend.

He’s the comedian and star of After Lately and can also be seen on Chelsea Lately and hosting the Sons of Anarchy after show.  Franjola told me that he lives near Miley Cyrus in Studio City, California and he befriended the Biebs several years ago.

“Yeah, I’ve hung out with Justin,” Franjola says. “He’s a pretty good kid, a hard worker, and he’s been a superstar since he was a tween-ager working 300+ nights a year. That gets to you.

“Hey, look, he’s a bored nineteen year old superstar who will hopefully come back to earth soon before he causes himself real damage.  My guess is he’ll snap out of it in the next few months.  I mean, how badass is it to be in jail overnight in your own private cell knowing nothing is going to happen to you once the dust clears?”

Speaking of Franjola, I hope you caught today’s television interview here – which you can still see on FOX 4’s website.  After a very funny interview, the anchor thanked Chris and encouraged the audience to see him at the show this weekend.

Then Franjola replied, “I just love Stanford’s, Kansas City and doing NBC News.” At which point the interviewer told him, “You are at FOX, not NBC.”

Then with a big smile on his face, Chris said, “Oh Shit, I’m sorry” and my heart sank as I thought, “Here we go again.” Luckily, everyone on the set was laughing, even the producers.  I apologized for the s-bomb being dropped, but they assured me they were not upset and thought it was very funny. In fact, they even replayed it later in the show.

Keep the Biebs in your thoughts and if you’d like to see his friend Chris, call Stanford’s at (913)400-7500 for tickets to the shows tonight or tomorrow at 7:45 and 9:45 nightly.  Some of the shows are already sold out, so grab tickets while you can.

    As a fellow alum, are you proud of him?

    • CG says:

      No not proud, just get it. I think he will fall back to Earth soon. It’s a phase. I don’t agree with it but happens. Hey he’s one of the most recognized people on the planet, it takes its toll. Hope he lands on his feet, I’m not a hater.

    Wtf? You are a bad ass if you get a DUI? Jesus you are a loser

    • CG says:

      Jess why am I a loser cause of Beibs? Huh?

        ” Outside of this being his official announcement that – I’m a bad ass”

        This quote is why….

        The kid is a douche bag, and he got popped for driving drunk. It is his official announcement that he is a douche bag, not of being a bad ass.

    Chelsea Handler screwed her way to the middle of the pack of basic cable. Women just aren’t funny, sorry.

    • CG says:

      Odd I was quoted saying some of this to the Pitch a couple years back. There are some very funny ladies in comedy but not nearly as many as the guys. Ten to one men. Chelsea is not middle of pack, she is huge in the biz. She says she banged her way up. She’s funny, no Ellen but solid. We have about 7 or 8 women a year that I like and have good followings but you are right in a way, few and far between. Women come from a whole other place with their view of life. “IT’S A MAN’S WORLD and we suck”…I get it.

      • hot harley says:

        according to nick cannon…no one watches Chelsea…
        I’d like to know if she has an audience…I don’t even
        hear anything about her….she probably needs to move
        to a bigger network with all the late night switches.
        yes…most comediansare male…but there have been some
        great women….lisa lamp isa riot…but most never hit it
        really big….
        whens bobby slayton coming in glaze? We go way back.

        It is like how you will never hear a (10) be able to tell a really interesting story or have a really cool hobby. They just don’t ever have to exercise those muscles.

        Although the Sarah Silverman gynocologist joke is kinda funny…

    Harley Bobby Slayton is NEXT WEEK, THURS-SAT..YOU CAN HAVE FOUR VIP SEATS ON ME..IF YOU LIKE…Thurs at 8, Fri/Sat 745/945..let me know

  5. Kerouac says:

    Pick your poison, weapon of choice: if Cyrus is a road map of ‘how to get there’, Bieber with a gun instead a microphone would be Starkweather (beyond role models, if these represent ‘entertainment’ 21st century & music of renown, those long summer days a young Kerouac spent a jackhammer in hands auditory impingement was well worth it.

  6. Craig,
    Anyone who listens to you must be as messed up as you are! Not hating , just feel sorry for you! Always searching for something you will never find……inner peace……not likely for an atheists…Jack believed in a higher power….always said look at what God has created…how can you not believe?…..too bad you can’t see it. What a pity! I feel so sorry for you.

    • CG says:

      We all miss Jack Candy. Every day. We all have our faults. Believing in God is up to each person’s choice. If you don’t it certainly doesn’t make you a bad person or messed up. To each his own. Jack was a sweet person, who chose to believe in God late in life and that was his wish. I respect that about him and hope Jack has found peace, we all search for that in life and after.
