The “Baby” singer (who actually taped the interview on Wednesday) was proud to show off his new ‘Believe’ tattoo, though Dave was none too impressed.
Letterman asked, “Is that a new tattoo?” and Justin fired back, “This is a new tattoo.” Dave replied, “Oh God how many do you have?” to which Bieber answered, “I have just a couple.”
Pleading with the pop star, David begged, “Tell me that’s the last one.” But Justin wasn’t about to bend to Letterman’s will- “It might be.”
Concerned for his young friend, Letterman asked, “How does that help how you look- to have a tattoo?” Justin responded, “It doesn’t not help the way I look. Yesterday my album came out and it was an important day for me, so I got ‘Believe’....”
Then Dave moved in on him and tried to wipe the tattoo off of his arm, prompting Justin to shout, “Eh! Eh! Eh! This is brand new!” He added, “Grandpas!”
