Rolling Stone Does Damage Control on Justin Bieber Article

On Wednesday, a Rolling Stone released an interview with Justin Bieber where they asked him serious questions that required him to think for himself. One of them was about abortion and whether or not he thought rape victims should be allowed them. Bieber said he didn’t agree with abortions and that everything happens for a reason. Rolling Stone since edited the original quote claiming it was incomplete due to an editing error. New quote below:

“I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber says. “It’s like killing a baby.” How about in cases of rape? “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don’t know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”

Contributing editor Vanessa Grigoriadis says the quote is being misconstrued.

“I think he meant that God has a plan,” she told PopEater. “Even for the most die-hard Christian, it’s hard to justify rape as part of God’s plan, and harder to justify rape that leads to pregnancy and abortion. I think he was wrestling with that in his answer, which I found to be solid and logical. I think it is being widely misunderstood. He did not say that rape was part of God’s plan.”

I think the real struggle happened when he regurgitated what he’s been taught and then realized how it might offend a few of his fans. This controversy could have all been avoid if he’d just put his finger to the reporter’s lips and said, “Shh. Let’s talk about my hair.”
