Bye Bieber Bunting rocks the cover of Rolling Stone next month, looking as bad-ass as his infant-face is capable of. The Stone is teasing out its Biebernterview by releasing all the salacious bits, and the PITCHFORKS ARE A-GATHERIN. Particularly around the Bieb’s stance on abortion which, though RStone calls it a “solid opinion,” he feels the need to end in a question mark. “It’s like killing a baby?”
Heedless comments like that are interview-bait gold, and RStone knows how to capitalize on an interviewee who has not yet learned to curb his tongue by asking him about abortion in cases of rape. Clearly disconcerted, the teenlette stammers, “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason.” REMARKABLY INSENSITIVE THING TO SAY, yes, even when followed by the admission that, never having been in that position, he “wouldn’t be able to judge.” But what 16-year old pampered boy-child has a well-balanced, reasoned view of rape and abortion? This is how we develop informed decisions, y’all, by saying really ignorant things and then having someone correct us.
Unfortunately for the Biebling, his learning is done on the pages of Rolling Stone and all the idiotic teenaged remarks that usually go reprimanded by parents are being SLATHERED on the intertubes. His wranglers need to wrangle him better, because following his abortion comments he goes on to comment on the political situation in Korea. Come ON, RStone! That’s like letting a puppy talk about universal health care! I’m hesitant to call shenanigans on an interview not yet released in full, but perhaps we should be hollering for the Bieber’s education before his blood.
