“Saturday Night Live” took on CNN’s Piers Morgan and pop star Justin Bieber — among others — last night in the iconic comedy show’s first 2014 episode.

Bieber, portrayed by Kate McKinnon, appeared at the very end of the skit to address controversy over an alleged egg-throwing incident. The teenage heartthrob deployed multiple excuses to satisfy questions from “Piers” over the scandal, at one point declaring that it is a Canadian tradition to throw eggs at homes.

“Justin, Justin, I don’t understand what that means,” a confused “Piers” countered.

Other public figures appeared earlier in the skit to issue apologies.

Chris Christie, played by Bobby Moynihan, said he had been too worried to notice any traffic jams, contending he has “budgets to balance, teachers to yell at” and the gym to attend to.

MLB star Alex Rodriguez, played by musical artist Drake, blamed everyone but himself for the steroids controversy that has engulfed his career.
