Many tweets and Facebook posts have been made regarding Justin Bieber's tattoos, but how does the pop star's mom Pattie Mallette feel about the new ink? ET found out in a new sit-down.
"That's one of those things that I don't necessarily have to like," said Mallette, acknowledging that, at 18, her son is legally an adult. "He's going to make his own decisions."
Mallette examines heavy life decisions in a short film that she executive produced called Crescendo, which she described as being very relatable to her own life experiences.
"It's a historical piece on Beethoven's mother," said Mallette. "She actually tried to take her life when she was pregnant with Beethoven."
In Mallette's memoir, Nowhere But Up, she reveals that she attempted suicide by throwing herself in the path of an oncoming truck as a teenager. Shortly thereafter, she found out that she was pregnant with Bieber and gave birth to him despite outside pressure to have an abortion.
Mallette hopes the film will encourage those in similar situations.
"The only reason that I'm involved in this project is to help young girls," said Mallette.
Crescendo is holding 100 screenings on February 28 with the hope of raising $10 million for pregnancy centers across the country. To learn more go to CPCmovie.com.
