Late-night hosts owe a debt of gratitude to Justin Bieber this week for supplying them with a multitude of monologue fodder. Bieber was arrested in Florida for drag racing this week and was, as a result, the starring subject of many a joke last night. Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan O'Brien all brought up the young singer's misdeeds, and despite the severity of the situation, I'm not going to say I didn't laugh at their clever cracks. Take a look last night's monologues:
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Fallon made fun of the already-infamous smiling Bieber mug shot, saying, "I don't know if I'm looking at a mug shot or a Proactiv commercial. He's so excited to be arrested."
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno
Leno joked, "Justin was caught going 60 miles an hour in a Lamborghini. Hey, Justin, it's called second gear; try it some time. But to be fair, it is Florida, so anything over 20 miles an hour is considered drag racing."
Jimmy Kimmel Live
Kimmel didn't spare the troubled singer, either: "Just when the streets are finally safe from Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber comes out of nowhere, arrested in Miami Beach . . . and he's in trouble with his grandparents for not stopping by to visit."
Conan O'Brien showed footage of Bieber's court appearance, parodying it with a side-by-side picture of the singer fanning himself with money.
