Justin Bieber Rolling Stone Interview Raises Eyebrows
I don’t know what it is about Rolling Stone magazine interviews but, if there’s something even remotely sketchy bouncing around inside of an artist’s mind, they seem to find a way to bring it out (John Mayer knows this all too well).
This time, it’s Justin Bieber who is in the hot seat. It was bad enough that the mag chose to put a scantily clad picture of the Canadian teen on the cover along with the words “Hot, Ready, Legal” (can you say inappropriate?) but what he said inside was even worse.
He talked about meeting President Obama and choosing to greet the Commander-In-Chief with "What up, my dude!" (fortunately, Obama replied with "What up, Biebs!") and then, because of the lyrics in his single “Boyfriend” the 18-year-old was asked about what type of fondue he likes to which he replied "who eats the cheese kind unless you're old and from Paris?"
Here’s where it gets even more ridiculous. While describing his Canadian ancestry he said: "I'm actually part Indian. I think Inuit or something? I'm enough per cent that in Canada I can get free gas."
So, apparently he is a descendant of the Cree tribe but almost everything about how he said that was so wrong. The use of the term Indian is usually considered insensitive and, as someone who grew up in Canada, I can say that the Natives definitely don’t get free gas.
Someone needs to educate this kid about life, his own heritage, how his country manages Native American affairs…
