Justin Bieber's bad behavior as of late has not gone unnoticed by his mom.

Urinating in a bucket while insulting former President Clinton, showing up to one of his concerts two hours late, continuing to loan friend Lil Twist his cars to abuse — this hasn't exactly been Bieber's finest hour.

So naturally, while hitting the talk show circuit this week to talk about the new teen edition of her book, "Nowhere but Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom," Pattie Mallette, 38, was barraged with questions about her teen idol son.

Here are a few of her choice quotes:

"I definitely think he's getting a bad rap, but I'm also not naive to think that my child is perfect and making all the best decisions of his life. He knows what I disagree with, and he knows all the things that I'm really proud of him for, too. I mean, people don't talk about all the great things he does every day."
