Justin Bieber is a Class A twat and doesn’t look like he’s going to outgrow that anytime soon, which is a tad disappointing since he’s started to make really good music. Alas, his empty apologies have done nothing to actually whip his ass into gear/being a decent human being, so instead he just continues to act like an idiot. No surprises there, since he has no guidance in his life, other than what he gets from a grown ass man named Scooter. In fact, he barely even talks to his own mother anymore! He also thinks his dad Jeremy, who walked out on the family for years and was basically a total deadbeat until JB got rich, is the bee’s knees!
Bieber admits that during the last two years his connection with Mallette became, in his words, “pretty nonexisting. I was distant because I was ashamed. I never wanted my mom to be disappointed in me and I knew she was. We spent some time not talking, so it takes time to rebuild that trust. She’s living in Hawaii now, so it’s hard, but getting better. She’s an amazing woman and I love her.”
He also dotes on his father in a way that feels like role reversal. Bieber sometimes posts Instagram videos (to 42.5 million followers) of Jeremy playing guitar, and at one point in our talk he opens a notes app on his phone. “My dad told me this the other day,” he begins, reading from the screen. “He said, ‘Pride is your worst enemy. It’ll pull greatness out of you.’ I just thought that’s so great, because he’s a prideful man — he has always known what’s best — and it has taken him this long to see that.”
Look, we don’t know Justin’s life and it’s not my place to tell the kid how he should view his parents, especially since Patti Mallette is a nut. But she also had him at 17 and raised him as a single mother for years, working a bunch of jobs to make sure he was provided for… but his dickhead dad is the cool one? God help us all.
In fact, remember a few weeks back, when his dad commented on Justin’s leaked dick pics with some gross Twitter quip about how he doesn’t know what Justin’s been “feeding that thing”? Everyone was like, “Uhhhhh….” even down to Bette Midler, who snatched Jeremy’s wig on the social network. Justin thinks Bette needs to shut up, though, especially since he doesn’t even know who she is!
“This Britt Meddler,” says Justin, unintentionally mangling the stage-and-screen legend’s name. “I don’t even know who that is, honestly. I wanted to immediately say ‘Who is this lady?’, but then I’m just fueling this negativity. I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads.”
Yes, Justin, dads are going to be dads… unless they’re not actually dads at all until their kids get rich and famous and they want to siphon money and notoriety out of them. Then they’ll totally be “dads”! Gross ones, at that!
