In a wide-ranging interview with ace Rolling Stone reporter Vanessa Grigoriadis, the Biebs was asked (and, shockingly, decided to answer) the kinds of questions that are generally reserved for politicians running for office, not 16 year-old pop stars. When asked about a woman’s right to choose, the “Baby” singer clearly stated that “I really don’t believe in abortion.” Being the savvy reporter that she is, Grigoriadis sensed she was onto something and pushed him further, asking him if he felt the same way in the case of a woman being raped. That prompted the following reply from Bieber: “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
Quicker than you can say “Baby, baby, baby ohhh,” Bieber opened up an industrial-sized can of worms, possibly altering the trajectory of the rest of his career. Or will it? Does it make you more likely to boo Justin Bieber knowing that his political views skew to the right? Or, perhaps, does it make you find him even more attractive, knowing he’s down with conservatives? Or do the views of pop stars — particularly those who may or may not already have pubes — not matter one iota to you when their mp3 comes up on shuffle?
