Olivia Wilde, the actress and filmmaker, just ended a debate about the greatest singer. From portraying Remy “Thirteen” Hadley in the medical-drama series House, to directing a film, Don’t Worry Darling, the American filmmaker has come a long way. Apart from having a successful career in Hollywood, the actress has 2 beautiful children as well. Being a prestigious award-winning actress-director herself, she dated One Direction alumnus, Harry Styles, before calling it quits.

Despite being together for 2 years with Styles, the 39-year-old actress considered a $300 million worth of singer to be the greatest singer. Well, if it is not the 3-time Grammy Award-winning British star, who is it?

Despite liking her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, she thought Justin Bieber was the best singer. She further talked about her karaoke experience. The mother of two admitted she was not a great singer and had also been booed. However, that was the point, according to Wilde, that she would not sit for a cover song as karaoke was for the terrible singers.

Taking pride in her not-so-good singing skills, Wilde said vocally blessed singers could earn money with their gifted voices and perfect singing. However, she also revealed she was a great karaoke partner, as she was not a music artist. While Olivia Wilde cleared her take on karaoke, Justin Bieber has made notable appearances on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. On the one hand, the Booksmart director expressed her admiration for Bieber. But on the other hand, in 2013, she faced backlash for a comment about the young singer.

In 2013, the People Like Us actress offered advice to the ‘Love Yourself’ singer as he removed his shirt in London and the whole world watched. The actress took it to her X (then Twitter) and wrote, “Bieber, put your f–king shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt)”.

While she meant no harm as she admitted on Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Bieber fans took it as a hate tweet. She admitted she said it with love as it was freezing in London. Therefore, her tweet was misunderstood. Well, it seems her admiration for the 29-year-old singer is still the same as her major statement revealed.
