In a recent interview, the 50-year-old said that if she were Bieber’s mother, she would have pulled him close and would be present in his life to talk, figure out what’s going on in his head, to find out who’s in his life and who’s not.

She said that she has personally seen with kids that they just want their mothers to be near them and want advice from them. Obama added that the Boyfriend hitmaker is still a growing kid. Bieber has faced multiple arrests, and reports of drug and alcohol use and was recently involved in an egg pelting incident, which could get him charged with felony. 

Meanwhile,  Bieber was frisked by Miami police after being taken into custody, according to a report. In a newly released video the 19-year-old popstar, who was arrested late last month for DUI, drag-racing and driving with an invalid license, was seen being patted down from top to bottom by cops.

He was dressed in a dark hoodie, baggy black shorts and red trainers, and was ordered to take off his shoes during the search. Bieber’s tests revealed that his blood alcohol level was below the limit for drivers, but he is still two years underage.
