“Given the enforced blandness of teen stars like Disney’s Miranda Cosgrove or the transparent cash grab of Bristol Palin’s abstinence advocacy for the Candie’s Foundation, which paid her $262,500 in 2009, there’s something charming about Bieber’s awkward stabs at substance. Far too often, political organizations enlist celebrities to rope teenagers into civic participation by insisting simply that it’s cool, rather than attempting to engage their emerging political awareness. Bieber’s public stumbles into his adult political philosophy may not produce a coherent set of views, but the process he’s going through is more authentic and honest than what we get from actual political leaders.”
