Justin Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, credits music for keeping Justin out of the mayhem that usually befalls teenagers. Idle hands, you know!
Pattie routinely goes out on the road with the fetus and believes that the structure of his career gives him the means to stay away from teenage temptations.
His manager, Scooter Braun, said, “I think his mother – she and I have talked about this – at times, she struggles with how protective we have to be of him. But I also think, and she’s said this in interviews, that she feels safer with him living this life because it’s structured and we know where he is all the time. She feels that if they were still in Stratford, Ontario, he’d be getting himself into a lot of trouble.”
Scooter went on to reveal that Justin has been studying those who haven’t made it in their careers, as opposed to those who have. He added, “Justin doesn’t study the people who made it. He studies the people who haven’t. The general feeling we get is that it had nothing to do with their talent and everything to do with their personal life. Like the kids who fall into drugs and destroy their own trajectory. I think by watching that, he’s very conscious of it. He realizes that if he grows up to be a good man, he’s going to be able to handle the pressures that come with a position like this.”
But what about girls???
