Like any other teen his age, he's starting to form his own opinions on big issues! For him, though, it's in front a massive audience!
Check out Justin Bieber's new spread in Rolling Stone magazine (above), in which the young pop star questions his thoughts on sex, politics, and such hot button issues as rape and abortion!
Here are some HIGHlights:
On sex before marriage:
"I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them. I think you should just wait for the person you're…in love with."
On being Canuck:
"You guys are evil. 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."
"I'm not sure about the parties. But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad."
"I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby? [In instances where the pregnancy is from 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."
Wow! Those are some tough topics!
Obviously, not everyone may agree with all of his opinions, but we think it's wonderful that he's thinking about these things, and actively trying to understand why he feels the way he does about them! Such an important part of maturing!
Keep it up, bb! Too many people float through life without ever investing time or thought into these kind of topics!
What you say carries a lot of pull with a lot of people; it's important that you educate yourself as much as you can, so when you do speak out, you believe 100% in what you're saying!
