Anthony Kiedis Admits Justin Bieber Movie Made Him Cry
Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis admits in a new interview that he's a "cryer" and reveals that teen pop star Justin Bieber's concert film, 'Never Say Never,' brought him to tears.
The RHCP frontman and -- until now -- all around badass shares this anecdote with the U.K.'s Q magazine: "I sat on an airplane recently, coming from Hawaii to Los Angeles, with [producer] Rick Rubin just across the aisle, watching the Justin Bieber movie, 'Never Say Never.' I cried about twice during that film and I wanted the world to know that!"
He continues, "[In one scene] they were doing this very cheesy giveaway of concert tickets to 16-year-old girls. The cheesiness didn’t matter -- it was the reaction of the kids. When you saw those little girls crying deliriously, I lost it. I decided to tell Rick afterwards and he said, 'I was also sobbing during that point in the movie.' There you have it."
Red Hot Chili Peppers are gearing up to release their first album in five years, 'I'm With You,' due Aug. 30. We here at Ultimate Classic Rock recently took a look at what can go right and wrong with the disc. The album's first single is 'The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie.'
