A video posted on the Internet of Justin Bieber shows the pop singer at his worst, oozing arrogance in his response to questions from a lawyer representing a photographer allegedly beaten up by the entertainer's bodyguard.

Celebrity gossip Web site TMZ described Bieber as "arrogant," "contentious," "lovesick" and "disrespectful" on the more than four-hour video.

Bieber was asked about a June 2013 incident in which his bodyguards allegedly attacked a photographer who was waiting to take pictures of the singer outside the Hit Factory recording studio in Miami.

The 20-year-old Bieber compared the deposition to a grilling by journalists and lost his temper when the lawyer mentioned ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Bieber downplays the role that other artists, such as Usher, had in helping his career take off.

The deposition video is just the latest incident involving Bieber, who was arrested in Miami Beach in January for drag racing. EFE
