Despite all that "swag, swag, swag" talk, we always knew Justin Bieber was soft. But now we know he's a totally wimpy, blubbering mess of a mama's boy.
And last night, he released a saccharinely sweet love song to his single mom, titled "Turn to You," just in time for us all to grab it up and pass it off as our own excuse for a gift.
But c'mon, Bieber, how can you write a heartfelt song when you don't even read?
The song's lyrics are painful. They're so full of unabashed mommy admiration that you gotta wonder whether the Biebz is still breastfeeding. It talks about his young mother's struggle to support the two, and how she found God and stuff. All the nice things a son should say ... At a private Mother's Day brunch or something.
"So when you're lost and you're tired/When you're broken in two/Let my love take you higher/'Cause I still turn to you," goes the chorus.
And there goes that message we wrote in our Hallmark card. Thanks a lot, Bieber.
