Michelle Obama recently talked to Spanish radio host Enrique Santos on Univision Radio about how she would mother Justin Bieber.

The 19-year-old pop star has made headlines for his recent legal troubles, and a petition to deport Bieber has been signed by more than 255,000. In the interview with Santos, the first lady answered a question about what advice she would give the young star.

"I would pull him close. You know, I don’t know if it would be advice as much as action," Obama said in the interview with Santos.

"I would be very present in his life right now. And I would be probably with him a good chunk of the time, just there to talk, to figure out what’s going on in his head, to figure out who’s in his life and who’s not, you know.”
