When Justin Bieber flirted with superstar vixen Kim Kardashian last summer, his fans lobbed tons of e-hate her way. But luckily for Christina Milian, she got off easy when she tweeted a picture of her smooching the teen superstar on the cheek.
MTV News recently caught up with the singer/actress, and she dished about meeting the "Baby" crooner — and giving the Biebs some sugar — while both were shooting separate episodes of the crime drama "CSI."
"When I walked in the trailer, I didn't know Justin was gonna be there. And I was like, 'Oh my gosh, you're here!' I guess he was waiting in the trailer, in the makeup trailer — not mine, but the makeup trailer — and I got to meet him for a second. I was like, 'Hey, do you mind after I get my makeup and hair done, let's take a picture after we're done shooting?' He was like, 'Of course,' " she said. The "Dip It Low" songstress said she was upfront with Bieber about sharing her affection. "So I hunted him down after lunch because I was done working for the day, and I was like, 'I was thinking of planting a kiss on you. Do you mind?' I went with the cheek."
Milian quickly laughed off any idea that the two are canoodling full-time.
"I did it for fun, anyway, and the whole hype and everybody always talking about this whole thing that happened at New Year's with Justin," Milian said of the major attention the teen star got when he was spotted vacationing with Selena Gomez. "So I was like, 'How fun would it be if I actually just kissed him on the cheek?' I had a little humor to go with it and tweeted it, like, immediately, and I got a billion responses."
However, unlike Kardashian, Bieber's legions of fans didn't rip the starlet apart.
"So far, no death threats. Everybody was really nice. I made sure to say, 'Hey, ladies, don't be mad. Guys, don't hate,' " she said. "But I think everybody knows I'm a lightweight. I like to have fun. It's not serious; I'm not trying to take your man. And he's, hello, 16 or something? So let's keep it really real. But he is a cutie pie. But yeah, all the girls handled it pretty well. They were like, 'Oh my gosh, how cute! You're so lucky!' And I was like, 'Well, maybe it'll be you too,' and I even wrote back to a couple of them. They were really nice."
