Last month she allowed her kids to go back to Washington as she extended her lavish Hawaiian vacation for a couple of weeks. Now she’s dispensing parenting advice.
America’s self-proclaimed ‘mom-in-chief’ has some advice for the parents of perpetually troubled pop star Justin Bieber, who in the last month has been charged with multiple crimes in several different states as critics blast the child star as ‘going off the rails.’
Michele Obama – in an interview released Friday – says she would advise Bieber’s parents to play a more active role in the young star’s chaotic life.
‘I would pull him close,” Obama said of the 19-year-old pop singer in an interview with Univision, when asked how she’d treat the troubled star if she were his mother.
‘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,’ she continued.
The first lady added that she’s noticed with her own teen children that they ‘just want you near, you know, they want that advice from a parent. They want to see you on a daily basis.’
If that’s the case, why did she stay in Hawaii by herself? Talk about a lack of self-awareness.
