There’s no doubt that Justin Bieber is making history with his millions of fans and bountiful success in such a short time. Of all his music producers, video editors, voice coaches, and managers that have been attributed to Justin’s success, he continues to credit one person above all – his mother, Pattie Mallette, and the important role she and family played in helping shape and raising Justin Bieber.
After much anticipation, Pattie Mallette, known only to most as Justin Bieber’s mom, has finally completed her biography “Nowhere But Up,” documenting her struggles as a young woman and a single mom, overcoming unimaginable obstacles and fighting hard to rise above a life of poverty. Through hardship and turmoil, Pattie said she was “full of shame” over sex abuse and drug abuse, before giving birth to the pop superstar when she was only 18.
During a compelling interview on The Today Show, Pattie discusses the emotional triumph of taking her life to the written page while sharing her journey with others. Watch below:
