Justin Bieber: being gay is a decision and abortion is wrong
Fresh from winning a Brit award, teenage pop sensation Justin Bieber has suggested that homosexuality is a choice and that abortion is wrong even when pregnancy is caused by rape.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, he appeared to label homosexuality as a choice rather than something that is uncontrollable.
He also spoke out against abortion even when pregnancy is caused by rape, saying “everything happens for a reason.”
The interview for next month’s Rolling Stone magazine has been distributed via blogs.
When asked what his views on homosexuality are, Bieber responded: “It’s everyone’s own decision to do that. It doesn’t affect me and shouldn’t affect anyone else.”
It is not clear whether he intended to label homosexuality as a lifestyle choice.
Bieber’s position stands in contrast with that of Lady Gaga who last year said: “there are some people in this world that believe being gay is a choice. It’s not a choice, we’re born this way.” Her single ‘Born This Way’ has been described as the new gay anthem by Sir Elton John.
In his interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Bieber went on to say “I think you should just wait for the person you’re … in love with,” when asked about abstinence.
Despite his strong Christian background he did not argue against pre-martial sex.
“I really don’t believe in abortion,” he told the magazine “I think [an embryo] is a human. It’s like killing a baby.”
He added that while it is “really sad” for a woman to become pregnant after being raped, he claimed that “everything happens for a reason.”
“I don’t know how that would be a reason,” he added. “I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
I had to ruminate for 3 days before writing this. You obviously have a problem with Gay Men. During Prince Poppycock’s final performance you could not resist the urge to sabotage his chance to finish on a high note. It was as disgraceful display – even for you. It was unnecessary to “X” him because he did not stand a snowball’s chance in hell of winning up against Michael Grimm and Jackie Evancho. He was, however, proud to perform before millions of viewers one last time and you had to piss on his parade. If you wanted to humiliate him I’m afraid you failed.
I’m unaware of your personal history but I would guess you come from a wealthy family and you have been pampered and coddled your entire life. You have a sense of superiority and entitlement. Your arrogance is overshadowed by your callousness. You have no common sense whatsoever.
I would not have felt betrayed by your actions if you had also “X” Fighting Gravity for their flawed performance which you yourself pointed out to them in their post performance exchange with the judges. Had you given them the “X” in the middle of their performance I could have said you were only being an ass. As it stands your are a pompous ass and a homophobe.
I have usually agreed with your assessments over the years. We share a similar sense of what talent really is. I am critical of those who put themselves out there and fall short of my expectations. Prince Poppycock did not disappoint me with his performance and Fighting Gravity did. They were flat with the NASA performance and had a couple of mistakes during it. They were downright awful with their last performance and made mistakes. You never gave them the “X” – never. They deserved it and you did not give it to them. It’s disgraceful and you should be ashamed.
Prince Poppycock was a valiant performer even during his illness. He stood on stage and gave his all. His originality was obvious. His voice was beautiful. His talent is undeniable. Beneath that flamboyant facade of make-up and outlandish costumes is a gentle, beautiful young man who has overcome many challenges throughout his life. He never let others curb his pursuit of happiness through performance.
In the end, the result would have been the same. He would have been in fourth place. In the end, Michael Grimm would have won anyway. That is not the point. The point is you tried to humiliate him for no good reason.
Shame on you Piers Morgan.
Lady Gaga’s Grand MTV VMAs Entrance

Gaga Wows VMAs Red Carpet
Leave it to Lady Gaga to make sure the 2010 MTV VMA Awards got off to a fashion-forward start-the new Queen of Pop brought a new look to the red carpet and, of course, a touch of political controversy.
The inimitable Lady Gaga arrived in a dress by the late Alexander McQueen: the flowing regal gown wrapped her body in royal shades of gold, dark reds and deep greens. The whole look brought to mind a medieval monarch — only most ancient queens didn’t wear metallic golden feathers on their heads that looked like a Mohawk crossed with a Trojan helmet of war.
Naturally, like any royalty worth her weight in gold, Gaga arrived with military protectors. In Gaga’s case, her Ladyship was flanked by servicemen and servicewomen who had been discharged from the military for refusing to go along with the US’ controversial “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Gaga even directly dissed the policy in her red carpet interview and vocalized her support for SDN.org, a 17-year-old organization formed in reaction to DADT policies.
All in all, Gaga’s unforgettable entrance brought to mind her “Alejandro” video by combining commentary about gays in the military with religious iconography. The religious element to Gaga’s dress was less noticeable but still present-there appeared to be the face of a saint sewn onto the décolletage of her dress, bringing to mind Renaissance-era religious paintings.
