“Beyond the Fever, I have Bieber Diarrhea.”

In Part II of my interview with director Jon M. Chu of Justin Bieber's inspiring true tale NEVER SAY NEVER (see Part I HERE), we chat about Jon's experience on the sold-out MY WORLD tour, his favorite celebrity encounters, and how he has truly gone beyond "Bieber Fever".

Jon shares with us about his tour experience: "I felt like I was that kid in ALMOST FAMOUS where you're just sort of observing and you see all the people around him and you're becoming friends with them and the closer you become, it gets a little scary because you're not supposed to be a part of it, but you are and they're embracing and welcoming you into their community."

The rockstar lifestyle became so "addicting" for Jon, that when I asked if he had caught the "Bieber Fever" I was told: "Beyond the fever, I have the Bieber Diarrhea and am still in recovery"! But don't feel too bad, Jon further explains just how tough the Bieber lifestyle is and gives much credit to Biebs and his team for succeeding in the way that they have and for being a part a living, breathing part of it.

Check out the video after the break to hear more, and stay tuned throughout the week as we unravel more details leading up to the theatrical release of NEVER SAY NEVER opening this Friday, February 11th!
