There’s a lot of cross pollination between pop and mainstream EDM at the moment. Skrillex and Diplo are collaboration with Justin Bieber, The Chainsmokers are playing with Halsey, Martin Garrix is producing with Bebe Rexha, the list goes on. So it’s really not a surprise to see a lot of these people hanging out.

Well Bieber and The Chainsmokers were hanging out sometime recently backstage at a show and Bieber absolutely laid into Drew and Alex with a pep talk that MTV says “would make Shia LaBeouf proud.”

“You want to win tonight?” Bieber yells at Drew Taggart and Alex Pall, the DJs who make up the EDM duo.

“Absolutely!” Pall responds.

Bieber keeps going on his #winning rant: “Here’s the thing. There’s winners and there’s losers. What kind of man do you want to be?”
