Rolling Stone wants us to know Justin Bieber's opinion on abortion, Korea and other stuff
I've asked my 16-year-old nephew about matters of import and, aside from the 98 percent of the time when he has absolutely no idea what I'm talking about, his pronouncements come off as ill-informed sanctimony tinged with a healthy dose of naiveté and a dash of parroting whatever his parents think. Which is why I would never sit my nephew down for an interview, ask him about stuff like health care and abortion and then publish those quotes here.
Granted, my nephew is not Justin Bieber, so maybe Rolling Stone is absolutely right to have published the Bieb's musings on all of the above and more. Since he's got a lot of money and a trademark haircut, he's probably way more qualified than the average teenager. Somehow, we're thinking his publicist called in sick the day this interview was done and is now looking for work.
Some choice quotes after the jump...
On pre-marital sex:
"I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them."
On his biggest market:
"You guys [Americans] 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."
On political belief systems:
"I'm not sure about the parties. But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad."
On the abortion debate:
"I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby."
Even in cases of rape?
"Um. 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."
