Bieber sings on video a racist parody of his hit single One Less Lonely Girl. Instead of “There’ll be one less lonely girl,” Bieber sings repeatedly:
There’ll be one less lonely n*****. If I kill you, I’d be a part of the KKK, and there’s gonna be one less lonely n—-r.
Bieber was fourteen years old at the time of the recording. TMZ says Bieber told both Usher and Will Smith about the videos, saying he knew almost immediately it was a stupid thing to do. Usher took him into a room and showed him historically racist videos to show him how hurtful these words can be. Bieber and his team say various people have tried to extort him over the last few years — demanding money for both this video and the one he made when he was 15. He says he will not be shaken down anymore. He says he wants people to see the video and he wants to accept responsibility.
