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."
