Sad Story Santa Clause Never Visited Jusin
If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Justin Bieber this year, it’s that the kid loves Christmas. He loves singing about Christmas, and spending time with “shorties” at Christmas and more than anything else, selling records about Christmas. Still, despite these facts, and our lingering suspicion that Bieber is not actually a 17-year-old pop phenom but a refugee elf from Santa’s toy-making sweatshop, Bieber recently revealed that there is one element of the season he’s never held dear.
Yes, Virginia (Virginia being the name of approximately 17,000 Beliebers worldwide), there is a Santa Claus. Justin Bieber, however, doesn’t believe in him. Never has, actually.
“My mom always told me there wasn’t a Santa,” Bieber told AOL Music. “This was her logic: She thought if I grew up knowing about Santa thenfinding 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.”
Is your heart melting into a puddle of sad-faced rainbows right about now? Are you simultaneously swooning and kick-starting a Twitter campaign to buy Justin Bieber enough presents to make up for 17 years of Santa-neglect?
Well, stop it. Bieber doesn’t want your sympathy. He might still want your swooning (we’ll get back to you on that one), but the singer says his family’s non-Santa tradition is one he holds dear, and told AOL Music he’s happy his mom was “straight-up and honest with me all the time.” He continued: “I didn’t tell my friends or ruin it for anyone — I was a good kid!”
And while that little Bieber interview has cast some uncertainty on whether or not Santa will be dropping in on the pop star’s Stratford, ON household this Christmas, there is one very-special holiday visit that was recently confirmed. Bieber will be in Toronto Wednesday, Dec. 21 to play a Christmas concert at Massey Hall. Tickets, which went on sale Sunday, sold out in minutes, CTV reports, but for those unwilling to cash out their RESPs for scalped passes (we found two tickets to the show on eBay for $3,999) the whole thing is being taped, and will be broadcast the next day as an excessively punctuated concert special, MuchMusic Presents: Justin Bieber: Home for the Holidays. Look for it Thursday, Dec. 22 on MuchMusic (6 p.m. ET/PT) and CTV (7:30 p.m. ET).
