After Justin Bieber debuted his fancy up-duo at the 2015 MTV VMAs, the Internet was quick to point out that it resembled Kate Gosselin’s mid-2000’s hairstyle. Now the 40-year-old “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ mom candidly discusses the comparison.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan, Gosselin admits she recognizes the resemblance to her former coif — and The Biebs can have it!
In fact, Gosselin admits her former hairdo had more to do with necessity than style.
“It was more of a way to avoid having all-day bed head when my focus was on eight kids, all of whom were 5 years old and younger! I got up and it looked the same as when I went to sleep!”; she says. “With this style, I think Justin may have more time to focus on his music and less on his hair!”;
As for whether she’s a Belieber, Gosselin says she is simply proud of everything the 21-year-old star has overcome under such a watchful eye — so basically, yes she is.
“We met a few years ago when he was a lot younger and all I remember was that he was really polite and sweet. I applaud him for a whirlwind, successful career that began when he was very young,”; she says. “Everyone makes mistakes, and they never go unnoticed when you’re in the public eye, but as a mom, I wish him the very best in everything he does in life!”;
