Rachel Maddow kicked off a segment on her Thursday night MSNBC show by mocking Justin Bieber's fancy (and incredibly shiny) car.
Bieber has been photographed driving his $100,000 chrome Fisker around Los Angeles. Recently, he was pulled over for going over 100 mph on a freeway. Bieber was reportedly trying to lose a team of paparazzi, but was pulled over for reckless driving.
Maddow said that the chrome car kind of looks like "a high-end kitchen implement." She added, "It looks like it should have a granite dashboard and a cold draft ice machine in the glove compartment." She pointed out that the car does not usually come in chrome, "but if you're Justin Bieber and you're eighteen and you want the whole world to know you're old enough to drive now, you can have whatever you want."
Maddow said that Bieber's car was an example of the teen transitioning to adulthood. Maddow said the "child star becomes an adult thing" is an awkward phase, "an unsettling and difficult transition." As Maddow described how Bieber wants the world to know that he's "gone through puberty," images of the pop star's recent Rolling Stone magazine cover filled the screen. On the cover, Bieber wears a ribbed tank top behind the headline "HOT READY LEGAL."
