Justin Bieber, 16, opened up to Rolling Stone Magazine in an interview that has been called ‘scandalous’ and ‘misquoted.’
First of all, I got to say that I was shocked by the kinds of questions they were asking this kid, including ones on health care, sex, drugs, rape and abortion.
Um, yes. Rape and Abortion.
In specific, Bieber was asked whether or not he was still anti-abortion in cases of rape.
“Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason,” said Bieber. “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.”
That was his full answer even though Rolling Stone Magazine originally printed his reply as simply being, “I don’t know how that would be a reason” causing a lot of people to get pretty pissed at the young star.
They have since printed his full quote but the damage has been done. As a result of their ‘mistake,’ they’ve sold a few more copies of their mag and have added themselves to the long list of people and companies who have exploited the hell out of this 16-year-old kid.
Anyway, further along in the interview “The Biebs’” view on healthcare was much more interesting and informative, proving that even a kid can tell that our system is f***ed up.
When asked if he would ever become an American, Bieber nixed the idea claiming, “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.”
And of course Rolling Stone didn’t stop there but also tried to delve into the teen’s sex life with Selena Gomez.
Bieber had this to say, “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them.”
For those of you who think that’s a sickly sweet answer, all I can say is go watch an episode of MTV’S ‘16 and Pregnant’ or ‘Teen Mom’ and start praying that more 16-year-olds start having his view of sex instead.Tags: health care, interview, Justin Bieber, misquote, Rolling Stone Magazine
