Hey Taylor Swift…you just got BIEBER’D! All joking aside, Justin Bieber has assumed his duties as Ashton Kutcher’s replacement on the MTV prank show “Punk’d” and his first celebrity punk is Taylor Swift.
Bieber convinced Swift that she had set fire to a boat and ruined someone’s wedding.
In the episode, Justin invites Taylor over to his house to help him write a song for Selena Gomez and while they are hanging out and writing at his beach house he’s like “Hey Taylor, wanna set off some fireworks into the ocean where boats are sailing?” Because when you’re a celebrity, that’s a normal fun thing for 17-year-old boys to do, right after throwing grenades and piloting airplanes blindfolded.
So they are setting off fireworks into the ocean when one “accidentally” lands on a boat that a couple is having their wedding on. The boat, which was staged by the show, catches on fire and the wedding party (all actors) have to swim to shore while Swift panics because she just thinks she had set someone’s wedding on fire.
"I'm on a Boat! That's on fire!"
Taylor was distraught until Bieber revealed that she “just got Punk’d.” A source tells Hollywoodlife.com “Taylor didn’t start crying but was very freaked out and was like ‘OMG I’m so sorry! Justin was trying to downplay the situation, when he said she’d been punk’d she started laughing and said, ‘How could you do this to me?’”
To which Bieber responded, “Because MTV is paying me a sh-t ton of money to do this.” KIDDING. I have no idea what Bieber said.
Afterwards, all was well in the Swift/Bieber union as Bieber joined Taylor onstage that same night at the Staples Center in LA for a surprise performance of Bieber’s hit song “Baby,” during Taylor’s sold out show last week.
Justin Bieber replacing Ashton on Punk’d makes perfect sense. Other than the fact that Bieber could easily play Ashton if “Two and a Half Men” ever needs to do a flashback from when Ashton was a fetus, but Bieber is feisty and sneaky and does crazy stunts like bring a pet snake to the VMA’s and name it after his penis! Whoa, chill story bro!
Back when it was announced that Bieber would be the new punkster, Ashton said, “"He's a nice kid and he's a funny kid - and people don't know he's a funny kid yet... and he's sneaky."
