How Would First Lady Michelle Obama Handle Justin Bieber?

Even the First Lady of the United States has an opinion on Justin Bieber’s behavior of late. Michelle Obama says if the pop sensation were her son she’d “pull him close.”

Justin is at the center of a slew of personal dramas at the moment; including criminal charges in the U.S. — for a drunken drag-racing stunt in Miami last month — and in Canada, where he’s under investigation for a New Year’s Eve assault on a limo driver. Well, Mrs. O has a thing…or three…to say about that. And she has a special word of “advice” for Justin’s allegedly lenient parents, Jeremy and Pattie.

She told Univision over the weekend:

“I don’t know if it would be advice as much as action. I would be very present in his life right now. And I would be probably with him a good chunk of the time, just there to talk, to figure out what’s going on in his head, to figure out who’s in his life and who’s not, you know.”

The First Lady has noticed that her own daughters, Malia and Sasha, respond well to this kind of of parenting.

“[They] just want you near… They want to see you on a daily basis.”
