Justin Bieber doesn't believe in Santa Claus
Teen singer Justin Bieber says his mother Pattie Mallette never allowed him to believe in Santa Claus.
"My mom always told me there wasn't a Santa. This was her logic - she thought if I grew up knowing about Santa, then finding out he wasn't real, that it would be like she was lying to me.
And then when she told me about god, I maybe wouldn't believe her," Bieber told AOL Music. However, the 17-year-old is happy that his mother was "straight-up and honest with me all the time".
Bieber said he kept the holiday spirit alive for his childhood pals. "I didn't tell my friends or ruin it for anyone -- I was a good kid!"
