Teen pop stars are notorious for touting abstinence only to backpedal on their vows as they grow older — Britney Spears and the Jonas Brothers all began their careers flashing purity rings.
Justin Bieber, however, was never part of the wait-until-marriage brigade. It’s no surprise that he took a slightly more liberal stance on sex when asked about it for his recent cover of Rolling Stone.
“I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them,” he said. When further pressed about whether he thought people should wait until marriage to have sex, he simply reiterated, “I think you should just wait for the person you’re… in love with.”
Bieber, of course, was recently part of a bogus paternity scandal when a fan named Mariah Yeater — who he says he never met — claimed to have given birth to his child. Bieber even included a “Billie Jean”-esque song about the media firestorm on his latest album.
