Justin Bieber made headlines for reasons beyond his haircut and dance moves this week.

The 16-year old gave an interview to Rolling Stone in which he touched on Canada's health care system; his opinion on sex; and, most controversially of all, abortion.

Following Bieber's insinuation that he'd be against terminating a pregnancy that was the result of rape - because "everything happens for a reason" - many critics took the singer to task for his word choice.

But "I think he meant that God has a plan," said the article's author, Vanessa Grigoriadis. "Even for the most die-hard Christian, it's hard to justify rape as part of God's plan, and harder to justify rape that leads to pregnancy and abortion. I think he was wrestling with that in his answer, which I found to be solid and logical. I think it is being widely misunderstood. He did not say that rape was part of God's plan."

Somewhere between funny talk show interviews and award ceremonies, Justin Bieber found time this month to sit down with Rolling Stone.

Aside from quickly closing his computer as soon as the reporter commented on a wallpaper photo of himself and Selena Gomez in front of a sunset (AWWW!), Justin touched on a number of topics. Many of them controversial. Check out his views on sex, abortion and Canada below.

Justin Bieber for Rolling Stone

On intercourse: "I don't think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them. I think you should just wait for the person you're... in love with."

On abortion: "I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby?"

What if it's the result of rape? "Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."

On health care: "Canada's the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don't need to worry about paying him, but here [America], your whole life, you're broke because of medical bills. My bodyguard's baby was premature, and now he has to pay for it. In Canada, if your baby's premature, he stays in the hospital as long as he needs to, and then you go home."

UPDATE: Rolling Stone admits to leaving out a key sentence. Justin actually answered one of the questions above with:

"Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don't know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."

We underestimated the power of the Biebs.
He's clearly a mini God. - Puck to Mike, on the Glee episode "Comeback"

Dressing up four of its characters in a hooded sweatshirt and parting their hair over their eyes, Glee created The Justin Bieber Experience last night, a tribute group that covered this young icon's most beloved singles.

The mission of these fictional high school students? To win over their girlfriends with "a sugary sweet dose of the Biebs" in order to ignite the flames of passion that had burned out after Valentine's Day. The results? Hilarious.

Visit our friends at TV Fanatic for a sample of Glee covering this artist, and check out the fun scene below, as The Justin Bieber Experience is formed:

Over on E!, meanwhile, Bieber talked to Handler about his Grammy loss to Esperanza Spalding ("I’m not gonna lie. People are expecting me to say something else, but I’m disappointed.") and Lady Gaga's unusual event entrance (“People say it’s artistic and stuff, and I’m, like, ‘You’re an egg.’”).

Once again, Justin Bieber fans have taken their love of this artist to a disturbing extreme.

For the third time - first, regarding Kim Kardashian; then, in reaction to Justin's relationship with Selena Gomez - Beliebers have actually issued death threats against someone with whom they take issue.

In response to Esperanza Spalding taking home the Best New Artist Grammy last night, Bieber followers edited the singer's Wikipedia page to include such horrific entries as "JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE." The page has since been scrubbed clean, but here's a look at it from last night:

Fans would do well to follow the reaction of their idol, who Tweeted after the event:

Its been & still is a dream to win a grammy. Was I upset...yes. But I was happy for her also. Someone said to me tonight its not your successes that define u but your failures. I lost..but I don't plan on this being my last chance.

It's also difficult to argue with Spalding's talent. Just listen to THIS PERFORMANCE she gave at the White House. Rather incredible, isn't she?

Justin Bieber may not have walked away with the Grammy for Best New Artist - Esperanza Spalding? Seriously?!? - but the young singer may have left the event last night with the most impressive live performance.

A three-part saga, Bieber kicked things off with an acoustic version of "Baby." He then transitioned into a high-energy duet with Jaden Smith on “Never Say Never.”

To wrap up the nearly eight-minute montage, Justin was joined by Usher, who came out to start the set by telling his protege it was "your time," as the pair danced around to "OMG." That's exactly what readers will be uttering as they watch this cutie in action...
