The hit band 5 Seconds of Summer or known as 5SOS (pronounced 5-sauce) to their fans, entered the history books as the only band ever to debut their first two albums in the #1 spot on the charts this year and it seems that their sudden rise to fame may be ruffling a few feathers. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine that will be released in print January 2016, the band talks about how they think pop-music star Justin Bieber hates them.
The band divulges that they and friend Nick Jonas had to sneak into Justin Bieber’s American Music Awards after-party that was hosted at Los Angeles hot-spot Mr Nice Guy last month. The band made sure to steer clear of Bieber himself though because in the words of 5SOS band member Michael Clifford “I think he hates us”. He then went on to give a few lurid details about the after-party:
“It was fucking crazy, people standing on tables and shit… I probably shouldn’t say this, but he had his own album on loop for, like, two or three hours.”
This is the second time that 5 Seconds of Summer has publicly stated they think Justin Bieber hates them. The band outed the celebrity beef to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet of the American Music Awards. They think it all started because of an earlier ET interview they did backstage at the iHeartRadio music festival in the summer where band mates all jokingly teased that front-man Luke Hemmings had a massive crush on Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. The whole interview did seem like a big joke but apparently it was enough to make Bieber jealous. Here are some choice quotes from the first 5SOS interview about Hemmings’ unhealthy obsession with Selena Gomez along with a video excerpt:
“He writes fan mail! And he actually writes poems as well — My Dear Selena”
“He has a love shrine in the kitchen!”
“Yeah, that love shrine is so weird!”

Last month on the red carpet of the American Music Awards 5 Seconds of Summer let it be known that they think Justin didn’t like them after that interview and wanted to set the record straight that was joke.
“We think that Justin Bieber actually hates us and we’re actually worried that it’s because of this strange rumor”
“I just wanna be friends with Justin Bieber, I’ve only met her once”
“We want to cut the beef – we want to slice it into thing thin-cut beef”
