Justin Bieber and his mom Pattie Mallette arriving at the Roast of Justin Bieber – Sony Studios
Mother knows best.
In (a belated) honor of his 21st birthday, Justin Bieber was mercilessly roasted by the likes of Hannibal Buress, Pete Davidson, Ludacris and even Martha Stewart with host Kevin Hart at the helm.
JB’s mom, Patti Mallette, knew before the festivities kicked off in Los Angeles on Saturday that they would proceed exactly as they did.
Asked by reporters on the red carpet at what point it was decided that this was a good idea, Pattie said:
“I personally don’t think that this is. I personally think, as a mom, that no mom wants to see their kid get roasted, so I don’t love the idea of a roast.”
“I’m going to be a good sport. It is what it is. I know what I’m coming into; we know what we’re expecting, so it’s all good.”
If Pattie could make fun of her son for one thing, it would be for his saggy pants.
“I think that’s about the extent of it for me, obviously, [because] moms want to be encouraging to their kids, but definitely. Pull up those pants!”
“It’s always tough to watch anybody that you care about go through any sort of scrutiny in public.
“I think it’s a tough thing to grow up under the world’s judging eyes, and everybody goes through their stages, everybody learns differently, everybody looks at things differently and I’m proud of him. He’s making a lot of great choices lately.”
As for her son’s Calvin Klein ads, she said:
“I still can’t believe that my son is the Calvin Klein model. It’s crazy to me! I really don’t have an opinion either way, I’m just kind of in shock.”
