While he didn't have the world's biggest pop star on his show, Andy Cohen did invite Justin Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette, into the "Watch What Happens: Live" clubhouse. During her visit, she addressed her son's recent public indiscretions and defended him.
"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," she said. "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."
Cohen didn't get into any specifics with Mallette, but some of those poor decisions might include a video posted on TMZ featuring Bieber urinating into a mop bucket in the kitchen of a nightclub and then spraying a bottle of cleaning fluid at a picture of Bill Clinton while saying, "F*ck the former president!"
Mallette tried to focus on the positive, pointing out that Bieber meets with Make-A-Wish Foundation kids before every concert. And he's on pace for a rather impressive record. At only 19-years-old, he's on track to be the celebrity who's granted the most wishes ever in the history of the foundation.
While visiting "The View" on Wednesday, Mallette admitted that for his 18th birthday, Bieber asked for space. So, she no longer travels with him. Is it coincidence that his more outlandish behavior started after his 18th birthday? Still, she does talk to her son all the time and tries to give him advice.
And for anyone wanting to know the advice, she shares it in the new teen edition of her autobiography, "Nowhere But Up."
