Justin Bieber’s Mom’s Book Is the Worst Idea Since His Haircut (VIDEO)

justin bieber momBecause of course she would, Justin Bieber's mom just got herself a book deal. Pattie Mallette, the lucky lady whose womb was chosen to carry the world's biggest pop star, gave birth to Bieber when she was only 18 years old in Ontario, Canada. Now, at 35, Ms. Mallette is ready to share with the world what it was like to be a troubled teen turned reluctant stage mom turned one of the richest people on Earth. Her memoir is called Nowhere But Up: The Story of Justin Bieber's Mom and will be released on September 18.

Nowhere but up, indeed, Pattie. Sounds like she's ready to ride that Bieber fever wave all the way to the top by earning some of her own money, and her own fame, off of her son. It's nothing new -- Britney Spears' mom wrote a book, and so did Nick Carter's. But, hmm. Does she really want to be in the same category as those two parents?

I mean, it's not like those two women raised the pinnacle of healthy teenage stars. We all know Britney's problems, and Nick Carter became desperate enough for attention after the Backstreet Boys glow wore off that he starred in a B-list reality show with his degenerate siblings. Where were their mothers when all that shit went down? Too busy writing their books, blogs, what have you, perhaps?

And the similarities between Pattie and Britney's mom, Lynne Spears, aren't lost on me. They all seem so wholesome at first -- blowing kisses from the crowd when their famous child waves to them on stage, giving interviews about how God keeps them grounded, showing up in the background of documentaries of their star kid's lives carrying a water bottle and a tote bag, looking concerned, and frankly, a bit lost, hiding their heads in sweatshirts when the paparazzi tries to snap their photo leaving a courthouse. In this day and age, it's a tale as old as time.

Listen. Lynne was just a down-home Louisiana Christian woman who only wanted the best for her daughter. Pattie's just a kind Canadian Christian woman who only wants the best for her son. But do parents who only want the best for their children write books about what it's like raising their legendary child, thereby exploiting their family and their kid to degree no outsider could come close to?

I don't think so. Do you?
