Justin Bieber: ‘I’ve Had a Beer’ Before

ALTWhether he’s speeding down the freeway in his Batmobile or making out with Selena Gomez at an IHOP, Justin Bieber has made it pretty clear he doesn’t care what other people think of him. But now, protective moms and dads of the world might have reason to raise an eyebrow at their teen’s idol: The 18-year-old singer has admitted to drinking alcohol in the June 2012 issue of GQ. “For me, it’s just like, I like to be in control of myself,” the singer says. “I mean, I’ve had a beer, like, before … But I never get out of control.”

Now, let’s not judge immediately — it’s possible that the young jet-setting pop star sipped on the beer in another country where the drinking age is lower than the U.S.’s 21. (If he had sipped a boot in Germany, for example, where the drinking age is 16, das ist gut!). And Bieber’s likely to have one supporter — Kim Kardashian, especially after the pop star shared kind sentiments about the pop star to the  magazine: “People say she doesn’t do anything; she actually does do stuff … She works hard.” That’s so not Hamm.

News Editor Lindsey DiMattina started her career writing for a series of interior design magazines in South Florida, but moved to NYC on a whim. She dabbled in fashion PR, then took a job doing celebrity reporting.
