Fresh off his Brit Award wins, Justin Bieber’s cover and interview with mega-magazine Rolling Stone has been released. Interviewed by Vanessa Grigoriadis, a contributing editor for the mag, she explains how she rode around in his Range Rover in Atlanta and talked about girls, sex and politics. Really? With a sixteen year old?
So obviously, some of the questions are way too involved for someone like Bieber. Not saying he isn’t a smart kid, but I’m saying in such a candid scenario, he was left a little vulnerable and the answers well, speak for themselves. Vanessa asks Justin about having sex. His response? “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them”. Well said Justin. Not quite waiting for marriage but not quite I’m already have sex. We get it.
Next, the two begin to talk about the difference between health care in Canada and the US in which Justin immediately explains how great free health care in Canada is. He tells a story about how his bodyguard’s baby was premature and now has to pay for it with tons of medical bills. In Canada, he explains that if your baby is premature, it stays in the hospital until things are fine and then you go home. No worries.
Then, Vanessa asks Justin about abortion. Quite a heavy topic to ask a 16 year old boy. His response is that he thinks its wrong. He states “its like killing a baby”. Then, to even further the inappropriate discussion, she asks him what about abortions after rape? REALLY?! Are you serious? What ever possessed you to think these were appropriate questions? How about asking him about his new movie, Selena Gomez, crazy fans, anything appropriate for his age category.
I also want to know where the hell his publicist was for this entire interview? Who pre-approved these questions? I’m sure there is going to be some retaliation from Bieber’s people and a little bit of ‘apology’ from Rolling Stone even though they will state that they did not misquote. Apparently, its floating around that Bieber also says in the interview that homosexuality is a choice. I can’t find a direct quote on that but you can check out the mag and find out for yourself when it hits stands tomorrow.
What do you think of the interview? Appropriate or way too far?
