Justin Bieber on Sen. Klobuchar: "she needs to be locked up"

Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber may be throwing his flat bill hat into American politics- at least as a commentator.
Author:

Justin Bieber doesn't care much for a bill proposed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)

Lucky for her, the majority of Bieber's constituency is likely too young to vote.

During a radio interview with Washington D.C.'s HOT 99.5, Bieber criticized a proposed bill by Klobuchar making it a felony to stream copyrighted material.

According to Bieber: "Thay guy (sic) needs to be locked up."

The radio snippet, courtesy of HOT 99.5's website, is below:

Bieber gained fame himself after viral videos of him performing copyrighted material appeared on YouTube.
