Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber . . .
Oh, such journalese!
Anyway, teen heartthrob Justin Bieber has shown that he's as naïve as he is cute by saying that being gay is a matter of choice – a decision.
Oh, Justin, you've got a bit of growing up to do. Sorry if that sounds patronising, coming from an old git, but, Jesus, there are times when you just gotta tell a kid he's a dumbass motherfucker.
Pink News says: "When asked [by Rolling Stone mag] what his views on homosexuality are, Bieber responded: 'It’s everyone’s own decision to do that. It doesn’t affect me and shouldn’t affect anyone else.'
"It is not clear whether he intended to label homosexuality as a lifestyle choice."
Sounds like it to this humble blogger. Either his views will mature and he'll regret his childish outburst, or he'll reach adulthood thinking like this – and then sensible people can really have a go at him.
Mind you, this is the young man who told the Guardian in November last year: "I pray all the time. I pray two to three times a day. When I wake up I thank him for my blessings. I thank him for putting me in this position. And at the end of the day I get out my Bible. At home-school my tutor is Christian, so we go over Bible verses. It's something that keeps me grounded."
Pass the sick bucket, somebody.
