Justin Bieber Doesn't Believe in Abortion

In the new issue of Rolling Stone - on stands and online in the digital archives on February 18th (subscription required) - Justin Bieber takes Rolling Stone contributing editor Vanessa Grigoriadis for a spin around Atlanta in his Range Rover. Along the way they discuss girls, politics, music, Will Ferrell movies – and sex.

"I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them," Bieber says. When asked if he believes in abstinence until marriage, Bieber – who is reportedly dating fellow teen star Selena Gomez – seems wary: "I think you should just wait for the person you're...in love with."

Near the end of their time together Grigoriadis caught a glimpse of Bieber's desktop image on his laptop: It was him and Gomez against an orange sunset. Bieber quickly closed the computer when he noticed that Grigoriadis had seen the picture.

Other highlights from the story:

- The Canadian-born Bieber never plans on becoming an American citizen. "You guys are evil," he says with a laugh. "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."

- He isn't sure what political party he'd support if he was old enough to vote. "I'm not sure about the parties," Bieber says. "But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad." He does have a solid opinion on abortion. "I really don't believe in abortion," Bieber says. "It's like killing a baby?" How about in cases of rape? "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."

- Bieber's voice began to change on his last tour. He's now working with a vocal couch, which involves doing 20 push-ups before before a session to warm up his chest. "He's got a nice tone tone to his voice now," says his vocal coach Jan Smith. "It's a good texture, but it doesn't sound like what his fans think he sounds like. He'll get four octaves eventually. He's still young."

Tell that to a rape victim, Biebs. I think they will have a different opinion.

i think he was dumb for approaching this subject, however, i think he was talking about being raped and getting pregnant happens for a reason, not the rape itself.

idkidk i don't agree with it but i think that he should just say idk and move on.
sincerely_moi 16th-Feb-2011 09:31 pm (UTC)
To be fair I honestly don't think he meant that rape happens for a reason. I think he means that the baby would have been concived for a reason, i.e. all babies are in god's plan.

I really don't think he is in any way a victim-blamer when it comes to rape.
luvthatdrtywata 16th-Feb-2011 04:59 pm (UTC)
whatever, you weren't even listening to him. maybe if he put it in song, you'd 'get' it.


Are we pregnant? Girl quit playing
We'll just abort it, What are you saying?
Said "I don't want to Bristol Palin, all dead in the eyes"
My baby momma broke my heart for the first time,

And I was like
Keep the baby, baby, baby ohhh
Keep the baby, baby, baby noo
Keep the baby, baby, baby ohh
I thought you'd never go to Planned Parenthood, hood

Keep the baby, baby, baby ohhh
Keep the baby, baby, baby noo
Keep the baby, baby, baby ohh
Even though I raped you, it happened for a reason


For you, I would have birthed the baby in a manger
And I just can't believe you stole all my hangers
And I play it cool but I'm dragging you
To Canada, you psycho slut, time for free rehab like that Demi cunt


I'm going down, down, down, down
Like our aborted fetus down the drain into the ground

And I was like
Keep the baby, baby, baby ohhh
Keep the baby, baby, baby noo
Keep the baby, baby, baby ohh
Jordin Sparks thinks your being a slut

Keep the baby, baby, baby ohhh
Keep the baby, baby, baby noo
Keep the baby, baby, baby ohh
Death to America, long live the Biebz!

He's like 5 years removed from being a fetus himself so he probably feels threatened by that question.

I was with him until he applied everything happens for a reason to rape.

He can fuck off.

Yep, came here (late) to say that.

He will never ever be pregnant and he will never ever be pregnant as a result of a rape. Therefore he needs to shut the fuck up.
xmint 16th-Feb-2011 04:07 pm (UTC)
Going to have to disagree with you Justin, rape doesn't happen for a reason.
magnolianight 16th-Feb-2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
Pretty sure he meant pregnancy via rape can happen for a reason.

I know they seem similar, but I can understand what he means by that.
x_butterfly19_x 16th-Feb-2011 04:17 pm (UTC)
I hope he was referring to the getting pregnant by chance part and not the rape part.

Awkward phrasing.
xmint 16th-Feb-2011 04:21 pm (UTC)
Which makes the statement worse, imo
takingthewalk 16th-Feb-2011 04:45 pm (UTC)
Also, you know, the kid is 16. Give him a little time to live before you judge him about stuff like this.
klutzy_girl 16th-Feb-2011 04:07 pm (UTC)
How about in cases of rape? "Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason.

getoutofmyhair 17th-Feb-2011 01:07 am (UTC)
From last year's X Factor auditions, I think. I think it was actually on The Xtra Factor, this old guy had like HUGE WEIRD LOOKING BULGE or boner idk and the judges were freaking out and he didn't seem to notice. I think if you youtube "x factor boner" or something you'll get the video.

Why do I know this? :|

"Pro-lifers" care about "babies" from conception to birth. After that, you're fucked in their books.

To make him sound like a stupid person.
Which he is.
takingthewalk 16th-Feb-2011 04:47 pm (UTC)
They want to ask him about serious issues to make him look stupid. It's just shitty journalism. If they were good, they'd ask him about stuff his audience actually cares about. My cousins are 7 and 10 and they are mad for him and they don't even know what abortion is.
highd 16th-Feb-2011 05:21 pm (UTC)
They are trying to make him look older. Justin is going to have issues with baby face for probably 5 to 10 years. So they are trying to make him sound worldly and mature. I get why they are doing this but I think it's really risky asking him these types of questions. Mostly because his target audience are young teen girls and I don't think they need to hear this utter shit.

It's not a unicorn you stupid fuck, they do exist. PET PEEVE WHEN PEOPLE SAY THIS. Say that you don't believe they are right instead, ffs.

Also, he is a 16 year old boy. His opinion on the matter is invalid, but sadly powerful. Remember how yesterday I was saying I kinda liked him for some reason? Well, that went away in one fell swoop.

I hate when people use believe when it doesn't really make sense, like when talking about evolution, it's not a belief.
artvandellay Re: I really don't believe in abortion16th-Feb-2011 05:10 pm (UTC)
whenever I say I don't believe in something I always follow it with "I don't believe it exists." Like "I don't believe in organized religion...I don't believe it exists." lol idk it's just a habit

I do like him but I disagree for obvious reasons. Hes entitled to believe what he wants, however, I think he is a dip for fucking talking about it to the press!

When I was 16, I was anti gay marriage, so ppls opinions can change, I dont see any reason to hate on him for this.

That is one of my biggest pet peeves as well! Uhhhh my favorite is "I don't believe in homosexuality." lolz
