One of the biggest stars in the world is only 16, which means he still has to listen to his mom. Or else! Have you punished your kids by taking away their cell phone?
He may be worth millions but even Justin Bieber can’t get away with talking back to his mom. The super-famous teen star admitted recently that, after her got into a fight with his mom, Pattie Mallette, she demanded that he surrender his cell phone. When he wouldn’t do it, she just went ahead and canceled his whole service plan! Way to go, Pattie!
“Mom travels with me,” Justin, 16, told BBC Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton. “We argue yes, I think every parent and son argue, but I love my mom. I think it’s good she travels me, but sometimes I need a break because I’m with her 24/7 but I love her, I like being with her. The other day she canceled my phone plan. We got into an argument about something stupid, and she was like, ‘Give me the phone’ and I was like, ‘No’, so she just went and canceled it.”
But what if someone wants to get in touch with him? Someone like, say, his mentor, Usher? “If Usher wants to get in touch with me? Then it’s tough.”
It sure is, Justin. Maybe next time you’ll realize that Mom knows best!
