Justin Bieber's mother thinks he is "getting a bad rap".
The 19-year-old popstar, whose latest indiscretions involve peeing in a mop bucket and shouting "F*** Bill Clinton" [the former President of the United States] and partying at an over-21 nightclub, doesn't always make the best decision according to his mother Pattie Mallette, but she believes he is still a good person.
She told Bravo's Watch What Happens Live: "I definitely think he's getting a bad rap, but I'm also not naive to think that my child is perfect and making all the best decisions of his life. He knows what I disagree with, and he knows all the things that I'm really proud of him for, too. I mean, people don't talk about all the great things he does every day."
"Every night before a show, he meets with Make-a-Wish kids. He goes to sick kids' hospitals. He visits with them [and] takes his time. He gives back to charities."
She previously revealed that she thinks Justin will grow up and eventually get his life back on track.
She recently said: "My son is not a public figure to me, he is my son. I can't predict what's going to be in the headlines. Justin has always been someone who has to do things his way. And I have to be able to believe he will do the right thing and he will come out on top."
