Justin Bieber has not been able to stay out of the headlines for some time now, and many different people have been weighing in on his troublesome lifestyle. Now, First Lady Michelle Obama is speaking out on his behavior, and HollywoodLife.com very much agrees with what she has to say!
When Michelle Obama, 50, speaks out publicly about your poor life choices, you know you have probably gone too far. Justin Bieber, 19, might be finding himself in hot water with the First Lady of the United States of America, and she is not afraid to share how she would be reacting — and more importantly, stepping in — right now if she was one of Justin’s parents.
Michelle Obama Has Parenting Advice for Justin Bieber’s Parents
The First Lady has a thing or two to say about Justin’s troublemaking ways, and she made sure to voice them during a recent interview with Univision Radio host Enrique Santos. Michelle made it very clear that she thinks Justin needs adult supervision at all times, and that that would be her first plan of attack if he were her son. Maybe that’s why her girls Natasha and Malia are so well behaved!
“I would pull him close,” the First Lady explained during the interview. “You know, I don’t know if it would be advice as much as action. I would be very present in his life right now. And I would be probably with him a good chunk of the time, just there to talk, to figure out what’s going on in his head, to figure out who’s in his life and who’s not, you know.”
First Lady Says ‘Kids Just Want You Near’
While Michelle was careful not to touch on any of Justin’s specific legal issues — especially whether or not he could be deported if found guilty of felony charges — she was more than happy to chat about the lack of a parental presence in his life.
Here are Michelle’s final thoughts on the troubled young star’s drama: “[Kids] just want you near, you know — they want that advice from a parent. They want to see you on a daily basis, because the thing is he’s still a kid. He’s still growing up. So, I would pull him close.”
