Justin Bieber:

Look what the cat dragged back from the dead!

Man, it looks like Chewbacca wiped his ass on your head!

I'm the next Michael Jackson! You smell like Betty White!

Here's some aspirin: You're catching Bieber Fever tonight!

Because my voice is incredible and your music is terrible.

Who even listens to Classical, anyway?

Even Elise wants to do me, and now that you're right next to me,

I can understand why they used a dog to play you in the movies!

Ludwig van Beethoven:

Sit down, son, and let me give you a music lesson!

Ask Bach: I've got more cock than Smith and Wesson!

Never say never? You'll never be forgetting!

I've crafted masterpieces that will last throughout the ages!

Your music gets you bitches on your Facebook pages!

I'm committing verbal murder in the major third degree!

My name is Beethoven, mother fucker! Maybe you've heard of me!

Not the Saint Bernard version; I'm the real O.G.!

You wanna trade blows? You can't even hit puberty!

Justin Bieber:

I got Kim Kardashian in my bed backstage.

When's the last time your music got anybody laid?

I've got a concert in five, so there's not much time left.

What else can I say? Your own music made you deaf!

Ludwig van Beethoven:

I would smack you, but in Germany, we don't hit little girls,

And I'm glad I'm deaf, so I can't hear that piece of shit, "My World"!

There's a crowd of millions waiting to hear my symphonies!

You wanna be a little white Usher? Here, show them to their seats!
