HOLLYWOOD, March 10 (UPI) — Andy Samberg plays a Justin Bieber-like character in the latest film from the Lonely Island trio, “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.”

The mockumentary’s first red band trailer, released Thursday, follows Samberg’s larger-than-life, mostly clueless character Connor 4 Real and his overtly lavish and outrageous lifestyle.

“My fans and me,” Samberg is heard saying during the trailer. “We’re in love. The arena is our bedroom, and the stage, the stage is where we [expletive].”

Produced by Judd Apatow and directed by both Schaffer and Taccone, “Popstar” also sees cameos from Usher, Snoop Dogg, Sara Silverman, DJ Khaled and Carrie Underwood.

“I’d love to get Connor to the point where he’s just kind of everywhere, like oxygen or gravity or clinical depression,” Silverman, who plays Connor’s publicist, tells the camera during a talking head interview. “He’s just everywhere.”

Please be advised, the red band trailer consists of nudity and profanity. “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” bows in theaters June 3.
