In a sheer moment of shock this morning, I was floored to see Justin Bieber’s mom on The Today Show this morning being interviewed by Matt Lauer. Why would she be on the program? We do not see other pop parents out there on morning talk, so needless to say it grabbed my attention enough to watch. Instead of promoting her kid’s latest album, Pattie Mallette is out promoting a book she wrote called Nowhere But Up that chronicles her uphill battles before giving birth to the Biebs at the age of 18. It is a fascinating story for those of you who never heard of this before thus why I encourage the view. Oh, and the other revelation from this interview: Justin Bieber is so famous that his mom has 1 million Twitter followers. Wow.
