Michelle Obama Gives Advice to Justin Bieber’s Mom Pattie: ‘Pull Him Close, Be Around Him’


First lady Michelle Obama‘s advice to Justin Bieber’s mother Pattie Mallette is to spend lots of time with her son and get to know who he’s hanging out with. She said in an interview with Univision released Friday.

When asked how she’d guide Justin Bieber right now if she were his mom, Michelle Obama said:

I would pull him close. 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.

Kids just want you near, you know, they want that advice from a parent. They want to see you on a daily basis and because Bieber is still a kid, he’s still growing up.

  1. Yes she is he really needs to be close to his parents and he needs to be loved and all the haters need to shut up because they’re making him worst

  2. If she’s around him, she’d essentially be condoning his behavior.Tough love is a better choice. She should love and support him unconditionally, but let him lie in the bed he’s made. I have 4 sisters. My mom always let me fall hard, not so much for the other 3. I have resentment for it, but I’m independent. My mom is 80 years old and is currently loaning her car to my sister, so her carless boyfriend can use my sister’s car. She raised 4 grandkids, and still has one at home. Augh. As a Christian, it would be hard to watch Justin smoke pot, drink, and use drugs recreationally. He has so much potential…it must be breaking her heart. I watched my daughter make some choices I didn’t agree with. Very hard, I grieved…ever watch the parents on Breaking Amish, when the kid’s leave??

      • How does he not need tough love. He’s been getting in trouble, has been charged with assault, DUI, felony vandalism and driving with a expired license. Even his record bosses wanted him to go to rehab.

  3. I agree with Michelle, Pattie should be spending more time with him now. I bet you right as soon as Justin sees his mom again, he will look back & realize that he made huge mistakes & will never go through them again. Also, Justin was re-baptized so obviously he already has been forgiven by God & hopefully ppl will lay off him by the time he turns 20. I will always love Justin no matter what happens.<3

  4. That’s great advice to Justin’s mom. She needs to stay close to Justin during this time. Help him to get his head straightened out.

  5. i agree with her.pattie as a mother needs to watch what hes doing and spend time with him bcuzz his devil friends and jeremy sure isnt doing any help

  6. It is good advice, but in all honesty, he is 19 years old.
    He’s obviously not wanting to listen to her and as he has full control over his life and money, she can’t insist that she is with him all the time because he obviously doesn’t want that.
    Until he realises he has issues himself, no one can do anything for him.

  7. Who ever tryna give you advice is the one who love you, justin has alot of lovers both adult and matured, fans and celebrities, whites and niggas, biebs live your life right.
