They say no press is bad press, but Justin Bieber might have actually turned his baby daddy drama into good press.
Bieber has been "staying positive" in the middle of the media frenzy, showing that he's more level-headed than most Hollywood superstars. Also, this whole thing has been great for promoting his upcoming Christmas album.
On Tuesday, Justin appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman to talk about all this paternity nonsense. Oh, and don't forget, he has a new album.
"It's pretty crazy. People make up false accusations. It's gonna happen, being in the spotlight," the seventeen year-old pop star told Letterman.
Letterman said that he never believed the accusations, saying he "saw red" when he heard about them.
"I could smell a weasel," Letterman told him.
And Bieber agreed: "I can smell a weasel, too."
Justin confirmed on the show that he did indeed take that DNA test to prove that he's not the father of Mariah Yeater's baby. Of course, Letterman just had to know how he gave up his DNA, and Bieber revealed that the doctors swabbed his mouth.
Letterman joked: "Is there disrobing?"
David Letterman needs a bonus for having to ask that question.
Bieber replied: "No, no, I don't think so!"
Bieber hasn't been slowing down. After his appearance on Letterman, he had a huge concert on the Today show, which involved special guest Usher. And after that, Justin appeared on The View. On the show, Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t help but notice the hair growing on her guest's upper lip. And I can't decide whether to make a joke about Justin Bieber finally hitting puberty or Whoopi Goldberg having her own mustache, so I'll just let you pick.
Anyway, Justin explained: "It's for Movember."
Movember is a movement that happens each November, where men grow facial hair to raise awareness for men's health issues. I usually skip the waxing and let mine run wild, too. According to the Movember website, the goal is to raise awareness to the cancers that affect men:
“The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember."
In cooperation with the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the movement is supposed to support "a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.”
