Justin Bieber: “By 25 or 26 I want to be… married, I want to be a young dad”


A few months ago, we discussed the frantic worry streaming from both Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s camps over the possibility of an accidental pregnancy. The fretting is quite understandable, for Justin is 17-years-old while his “cougar” girlfriend is still only 19-years-old, and both Justin’s mother and Selena’s mom spawned their respective little pop nightmares at the age of 16. Almost everyone who has been exposed to this story has crossed their fingers that Selena is smart enough to take the pill. However, the rumors keeps rearing their disturbing little heads, for this week’s edition of Star floated the idea that Bieber was actively seeking to make a little Bieber. Now, Bieber sits down with Women’s Wear Daily to discuss fashion and baby making. Really.

On His Future In Fashion: Definitely, I want to eventually start a clothing line or a shoe line, something like that. But nothing is in the works right now. I’m just focusing on my music now.

On His Style Icons: Kanye West. Usher’s real cool. He knows way more about fashion than I do. I’m learning from him. He helps me put stuff together and find different designers who I’ve never heard of. I just got a pair of Fendi sunglasses. I’d never heard of them before. I like Louis [as in Vuitton]. I started wearing their belts and stuff, which I really like [lifting his jacket to reveal an "LV" belt buckle].

On His Style: I try not to do too much. I try to keep it, I’m not sure what the word is – I don’t get too dressy. I don’t like to dress up. I really like to keep it casual.

On His Career: I never really thought I was going to be like this. I did it for fun at first. Now that it’s gotten so crazy, sometimes I look back and think, “Wow! This is crazy.” I performed for the President of the United States. That was a wild moment. Winning a VMA, that was a big moment.

On Charitable Causes: I love what I do but I think it’s important to give back, especially for me. I was less fortunate. I didn’t have a lot. I grew up in geared-to-income housing. It was always rough for me. We went to the food drive all the time. I always thought, “If I ever get rich or famous, I will help people who are less fortunate than me.” This year I’m helping with the food drive in my hometown. I’m just trying to do as much as I can with everything I do. With Pencil of Power, we gave $1 for every ticket sold on my tour, which was amazing.

On Where He’ll Be In Five Years: [Visibly counting] Well, by 25 or 26, I want to see myself, like, married or start looking for a family. I want to be a young dad. I want to be able to have done what I wanted to do — to be successful, to do a movie or whatever. But if the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25. One thing — I’m not looking to get married now.

[From WWD]

Well, as insufferable as a Bieber fashion line sounds, it would undoubtedly sell very well just like his already existing perfume and nail polish lines and keep him afloat a little longer before Justin becomes the next MC Hammer. A Bieber clothing line would be especially feasible alongside Selena’s line at K-Mart if not necessarily aesthetically pleasing, much like the way that the Bieb chooses to wear his pants already:


Now onto the baby stuff. Apparently, the Bieber can’t count terribly well, which is evident by the fact that WWD grilled him about “five years out,” and he jumped ahead eight years or so. While it’s not exactly controversial for him to express the desire to be a father at age 25, these are definitely unusual words to hear come out of a teenager’s mouth. To put it simply, he’s got babies on the brain, which is something that we usually come to expect from, you know, the mouths of females. I guess Justin’s not only thinking with his Johnson but also desiring the potential after effects? Let’s just hope that Bieber’s intention to keep “focusing on my music” is genuine. Yes, I’m imagining that a “baby Bieber” sounds just about as annoying as the Bieber himself. Perish the thought.

    his mascara just throws it off for me every time.

  2. gee says:

    I always thought I wanted to be a young mothers until I turned about 20. Then it hit me that I am nowhere near ready to be even close to a child. I mean, I’m also not a popstar, so there’s that.

    I think people generally end up doing as their parents did. Like, he might not have a baby right now, but if his mother was 16, 26 is 10 years later, that isn’t wildly young for him like it seems for some.

  3. atlantapug says:

    Yeah, before making broad statements to the media, maybe you should at least turn 18.

    He’s going the way of Britney when she announced she’d be a virgin until marriage.

    Keep your private, personal thoughts to yourself please. Then you don’t have to look like such an ignorant douchenugget when you grow up and circumstances change.

  4. Monique says:

    Please,Someone tell him to pull uphis dam pants.

  5. Monique says:

    Ms.Gomez pop his cherry,lol got him thinking about kids.She has him sprung already.

  6. ShanKat says:

    I hope this kid is saving his money.

    The defense calls Exhibit A: Aaron Carter.

  7. Erinn says:

    And if he’s not saving his money, he can be like the rest of the world and get a job. It’s not like he’s too old that he can’t go to school or anything. He has plenty of time. If he burns through his money too fast, it will suck, but he could just do what the rest of the world does every day. It’s not like his life would be over. His extravagant life, yes, but not his whole life.

  8. Jayna says:

    He is so not cute with his short new hairstyle the way he combs it. He looks like an older skinny woman.

  9. normades says:

    Wow, he really looks the lesbien in the first pic

  10. Calli Pygian says:


  11. Amanda says:

    he said that he’s not looking to be married now, well no sh*t. He’s 17. And if he says he wants to be married at 25, well it’s not 17 now is it? *rolls eyes*

  12. Liz says:

    25 or 26 is not that young to be a parent – particularly if the parties involved are in a financially stable situation. total non-story

  13. meilamon says:

    I’m jealous! I wish I could count 5 years ahead in time and ONLY be 22!!!!

  14. Dany says:

    Those glasses look ridiculous. And the poor little snake he carried around in the first picture… I hate it when people are using animals as accessories (helloooooo Paris Hilton *yuck) – as long as this kid is still wet behind the ears he shouldn’t even THINK of reproducing…!

  15. neve says:

    arrrrrrrgh save us from the rise of the baby biebers.

  16. Sillyone says:

    I just want to say if he were my future husband (which I would never even think about considering), but there is no way in hell I would go anywhere with him with the clothes he is wearing in that top pic, those shoes and red skinny pants OMFG! If I found that $hit in my husbands closet I would honestly believe he was gay.

  17. littleFATme says:

    I rather like the idea of him and Selena, they have the Nicole and Joel feel to them and I love that couple. I would like to see them married when he’s 20-21 and babied up like 3 years later. Go ahead little Bieb – I approve. Now, as far as his math goes, I do not approve. Someone fire the math “teacher” on tour and buy the Bieb a few flashcards!

  18. Str8Shooter says:

    Hmmm. I wonder if she or her lesbian partner are going to go the in-vitro route, or adopt from Africa?

    I wish Carey Mulligan all the best! LOL

  19. Phoenix says:

    As others have said, 25 or 26 really isn’t young to have kids, especially in his situation. IF (that’s a pretty massive if) he was still working when he was 25 he’d have been in the industry for 10 years and be absolutely loaded, he’d easily be in a position to have children.

  20. wunderkindt says:

    He should definitely make a few little Biebs. They’d be cute just like puppies.

  21. mia girl says:

    This is not snark, this is an honest question… Why are they styling him to look like Ellen Degeneres? That hair, those eyebrows, the jackets…

    Does his team not see it?

  22. Kelly says:

    @Str8shooter, I did the classic coffee spit-take at the Carey Mulligan comment!

    Also, is that Chris Brown? Either he is a giant, or the Biebs is a midget. Or they have been Photoshopped next to each other for some nefarious reason. They’re doing a Kardashian right there.

  23. Quest says:

    OMG, the sound and pitta patta of little Biebs around a house scares me.

  24. tripmom says:

    This kid is revolting. He honestly has no concept that he is only 17 years old, he is still a minor, and that a parent should still be making his decisions for him. HE IS NOT A GROWN UP. But really that’s not his fault. It’s his parents’ fault for enabling this little monster. Where are his parents, and why do they allow him to do stupid things like spend $25,000 on a Family Guy necklace? It infuriates me when you see young Hollywood blow through their money but at least I can say to myself, “hey, they earned it, it’s theirs, they can do what they want with it and it will be their fault if they end up bankrupt.” In his case, it will be his parents’ fault for not stepping in and simply teling the little creep “no!”

  25. Sarah says:

    I feel like when you’re that young that you do’t have a concept of how fast times goes. Like, when I was 17-18 I thought I would start having babies in my mid-20′s. Well, now that I’m 24 I feel like I probably won’t have kids until my 30′s. It’s easy to say you’ll have kids in 8 years because it is so far away but once he gets there he’ll realize that 25 is still pretty young.

  26. april says:

    I think he needs to sow his wild oats first and wait until his late 20s or around 30 to get married. Otherwise he will end up divorced.

  27. jover says:

    I agree tripmom, and shankat we can’t forget milli vinilli, danny bonadunce (sic), leif garrett, etc. I think he’s already on the downslide; he has little talent and who over the age of 18 with any taste in music wants to listen to him warble Baby,Baby and all that disposable fast food music written for him. Not to be gross, but I think he’s shot his wad sooner than most child “stars”. Oh well, next. And why does he look like Rachel Maddow’s little sister (not to insult Rachel, though).

  28. Kellie says:

    He looks like puberty is still 15 years away, I swear everytime I see this kid I think of a 12 year old girl. It was cool for people to get married in their 20′s during the 70′s, now not so much.

  29. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    It’s one thing to be bad at math when you’re still under the age of majority, but it’s a sadder sight in adulthood, so: 17 is not the same number as 26. I don’t recall having been asked by anyone if I also like a side order of 17 years old to go with my 26 at either of those ages. To tell the truth, starry-eyed prophecies are no more delusional than that five year plan bullshit that I’ve seen so many women foisting upon the world that have wisdom of a round of Dream Date and involve little more than ‘Marry the duke who owns France–BEFORE I’M 30, AHHHHHHH’. Screeching and screeching like Sam Kinison’s death was a bad thing. No impressions please.

    Kids say dumb things because kids are dumb, I remember Jennifer Love Hewitt already being wedding and baby crazy at the ripe old age of 18. Yup, she was going to get married and have babies when she was 22 or 23 and Carson Daly was going to be the one to stuff his dough-faced babies in her womb. Avril Lavigne couldn’t wait for age 20 or 21 to arrive, so she could retire from the business, come back to southern Ontario and start having babies right away.

    I don’t understand what’s infuriating about a kid waxing, waxing what I don’t know about the future. So he ends up being wrong about the wedding date, what of it? He’s irritating, but there a lot of parents who assume that their own demon spawn is above the pettiness of his age when in truth that dirt-lipped little Mamon is dragging us all down.

    If you’re committed to being angry, however, I’m very familiar with his hometown of Stratford, ON. I know from terrible fathers whose boxers are more substantial than their minds and take the phrase ‘thief in the night’ on as a guide for living. But Stratford? Imagine Stars Hollow on Gilmore Girls, but more quaint and with several prestigious classical music and theatre festivals. If you have to be underpriviledged, do it where your mum and grandparents can live with you and feed homemade ice cream and handmade furniture to the swans, take a left at those 25 inexpensive bakeries and cafes, pass the antique and surprisingly cheap giant toy store, and if your heart can handle the horror of the newborn baby silverware, bedding and hygiene store, go play in the shade at a giant park and have one of the seasonal natural trumpeters give you a push in his full regalia.

  30. Coucou says:

    Grow your hair out and then maybe i’ll start listenting to anything you have to say again.

    Until then, BASTA BIEBER. Have you looked in the mirror lately? Sorry, but without the long locks, you’re lost.

  31. Amanda G says:

    God, I feel so old. I just can’t see what tweens see in him. Not that talented, he’s average looking, he’s short and he talks like an idiot. Oh and he dresses like one too. I. Don’t. Get. It.

  32. Jolene says:

    Please Selena, don’t have sex with him. If you “oops”, he’ll make you keep the baby.

  33. eternalcanadian says:


    Aw bugger, I peed my trousers from laughing so much.


  34. aloe juice says:

    this article is too funny

  35. Sahidul says:

    Bieber nail polish? How does that even work? He’s a boy! World is ending.

  36. Cleo says:

    OMG, he’s prettier than Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry.

  37. Cleo says:

    He looks 12 to me and Selena Gomez looks 4 and 1/2.

  38. Claire78 says:

    He is awful. Luckily I don’t think he will be around too long (although I thought the same of Katy Perry and she proved me wrong). He does seem to be modeled on Ellen G. I feel like the whole relationship wit Selena seems fake

  39. bettyrose says:

    My parents were young, irresponsible, and poor. At least these little poplets would only have two of those strikes against them.

  40. crazycatlady says:

    Is it just me, or is he looking more and more like a woman the older he gets?

  41. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    Great, with his fashion line more boys can look like lesbians. Also he is 17 and this is really strange talk from a boy his age. I get that his life is unusual but still.

  42. Phil says:

    He looks like a 14 year old Ellen.

    His short haircut emphasizes his tiny, female-looking neck. He needs to grow his hair thick and long around his neck to make his neck look thicker and more masculine.

    Bieber needs to start dressing like a normal, near adult man. Stop with the clownish outfits.

    And most important- Start lifting weights. Justin looks so young because he has no muscles on his body. A 17 year old boy should be developing a muscular body. Or at least a small amount of muscle. Justin looks like he has no muscles or mass on his body. That is the biggest reason why he looks so feminine.

  43. Isata Kanu says:

    Justin it is your choice to decide when you want to start having kids but please remove that thought from your head for the main time and focus on your career and please Selena dont allow him to have sex with you yet our else you will be soon be having children out of wedlock and that is a very bad disgrace for a celebrity.Please am begging you two to stop thinking about kids for now how bout when you guys are in the mid 20′s then you can start deciding when to wed and to have kids.If you guys have kids out of wedlock then believe me you will lose a lot of your fans.
