Justin Bieber’s the kind of guy who parties on Saturday and attends church on Sunday – and he thinks there’s nothing wrong with that. The ‘Sorry’ singer made no apologies for his wild lifestyle during a new interview, saying he can ‘love God’ and still ‘have fun and enjoy’ himself.
When it comes to being a good Christian or having a good time, Justin Bieber, 21, doesn’t see why he can be both! Justin defended his wild lifestyle and his spirituality, arguing that his “love of God” is completely separate from how he loves to party.
“I am a Christian. I’m a believer and often people are, maybe, too conservative,” Justin said during the second part of his interview with The Bert Show, released on Jan. 7. “I’m stumbling over my words because I don’t want to offend anybody.”
This intimate conversation about Justin’s faith came after the hosts asked if Biebs was celebrating the success of his album, Purpose. Justin flashed a smile and said, “I’m 21 now – just being able to go out with your friends and be responsible and — be able to have a good time and still have fun.”
“I do believe you can go out and have a good time – you can enjoy yourself and get a few drinks, and you can be with girls,” Justin said. “I don’t think you need to be so serious about it. I think loving God is a separate thing. You can still be obedient and still love him.” Justin is openly involved with the Hillsong Church and he has always stressed how important spirituality is to his life.
However, the “What Do You Mean?” singer quickly realized that some might see his deep spiritual faith being at odds with his choices to get naked while on vacation, party into the late hours of the night and date multiple women — like Hailey Baldwin and Kourtney Kardashian — at the same time. While Kourtney may not like how Justin bounces from one woman to another, Justin sees no problem with it at all.
“I don’t think you have to love God and not go out and have fun,” Justin said at the end, arguing he and anyone can go out and “enjoy yourself, as long as it’s not provocative or intent or mean or evil. If you’re living life based on love, then I think that’s what life is.”
What do you think about Justin’s thoughts, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree with him that he can “love God” and still go out and party the way he does?
