Justin Bieber has made the news for peeing in a mop bucket while yelling "[expletive] Bill Clinton!", spitting in a DJ's face, drinking at clubs underage, stepping on the Blackhawks logo and flooring sports cars through his gated family neighborhood.
His sweet, naive maternal grandmother Diane Dale said she pities the attention he is getting.
"It's totally crazy. I feel sorry for Justin all the time because paparazzi pick on him all the time."
Bless his heart.
"Anybody else's kids have done the same thing but nobody says anything," Dale said. "He's a 19-year-old boy. And before you criticize him, say, 'What is my 19-year-old boy doing?'"
Dale also says her grandson has not changed, despite his success and wealth. On Twitter, the tech-savvy granny said "'Well the kid hasn't changed much' is one of the biggest compliments we have received.''
Dale has had more to say than Bieber's mother, Pattie Mallette, who has distanced herself from her son's actions. As a 19-year-old, she says he is responsible for his own actions, and that she cannot be held responsible for them since he lives alone and is legally an adult.
