Bill Hader Just Spilled So Much SNL Tea, You're Going to Need a Second Cup

The funny man and Jay Pharoah dished about SNL's worst guests, and about punking and shading celebs. 

No topic was off-limits during Bill Hader's appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. On March 22, the man who brought us "Stefon" stopped by the clubhouse with fellow Saturday Night Live alum Jay Pharoah. And it turns out that the two funny men can spill the tea as well as they can impersonate celebrities. 

One juicy topic the comedians addressed was the worst-behaved musical guests on SNL. And if you're reading, Justin Bieber, you may want to look away now...

Recalling the time the musician appeared on the late-night show, Hader said: "Bieber was just in a bad place. Maybe he's in a better place [now], but then he was very rough." He later added: "He just seemed exhausted, or at the end of a rope." 

Biebs isn't the only one who had a rough moment or two at the 30 Rock soundstage. Watch the clip above to hear about the behavior Pharoah witnessed from Kanye West!    

On the topic of musical guests, Hader also dished on that one time he pranked Ashlee Simpson. Before he worked on SNL, Hader appeared on Ashton Kutcher's show Punk'd — and the singer was one of his victims. "She started crying," he shared.

During the elaborate prank, which took place in an art gallery, Punk'd producers made it look like Simpson caused the gallery to flood. Hader, in turn, told the singer that she'd ruined his deceased brother's artwork. "It was my very first professional job as an actor, and I felt so terrible," Hader said. 

In the clip below, Hader also opened up on his past working on The Surreal Life. As a 22-year-old, he worked on post-production on the show, and said that former castmate Corey Feldman had offered to pay him $2,000 to see footage of the show before it aired. "I was drunk, and I said: 'Corey, you don't have $2,000.'" Hader shared. Burn!
