Justin Bieber recently sat for an interview with AOL Music in which the teen heartthrob discussed all things Christmas, including his disbelief in Santa, the worst present he ever received and the Bieber family’s holiday traditions.
Surprisingly, Bieber’s mother avoided telling her son about Santa. “This was her logic: She thought if I grew up knowing about Santa then finding out he wasn’t real, that it would be like she was lying to me,” he explained. “And then when she told me about God, I maybe wouldn’t believe her. So she just wanted to be straight-up and honest with me all the time. But I didn’t tell my friends or ruin it for anyone — I was a good kid!”
Bieber also said that, due to poor luck during a gift-exchange game, he once received pots and pans for Christmas instead of the Game Boy he’d hoped for. His best present ever, though, was his first bicycle without training wheels.
