So, I don’t have anything against this young man. He generally amuses me and elicits some deep rooted envy and maybe puzzle. Like what drug are your fans on? and how could someone sooo young be making soo much money? What does he know about life????
When asked if he believes in abstinence until marriage, Bieber says "I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them". Cliche but acceptable!
Do you plan on becoming an American citizen? The Canadian-born Bieber chuckles "You guys are evil". "Canada's the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don't need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you're broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard's baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby's premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home."
Well, that’s telling you Americans! A very simple view of your health system. *Insert my own evil cackle here*
What political party would you support if you were old enough to vote? "I'm not sure about the parties," Bieber says. "But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad."
Huh? we're back to baby-talk?
But his solid opinion on abortion which I applaud him for (well, for even knowing what it is and having an opinion) is probably costing him some fans right now. "I really don't believe in abortion," Bieber says. "It's like killing a baby?"
How about in cases of rape? "Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."
I don’t know if I should laugh, cry or hug him. It’s the phrase “but everything happens for a reason” that is pissing feminists off right left and centre. Though I think they really should take it easy on a 16 yr old.Well to save his burning pants, Rolling stone has clarified his comment with a missing phrase -
“Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don’t know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
Huh? Not sure how that changes the meaning.
I do think Rolling Stone’ Gregoriadis was rather rash if not evil for putting this young man on the hot seat like that. What happened to age appropriate questions like latest crushes, who do you fancy more, favourite party places, family, school. Cringe worthy for Rolling stones but yeah you are interviewing a teen pop idol. For zanny comments go talk to Katy Perry..
Kudos to him for handling his questions well. I never thought I would say this out "Bieber, you Rock!
p.s.I am trying to write age-appropriate material here. Mom told everyone (well Uncle Mike's page is as worldly as it gets) I was only 14 :)
