11-Year-Old Student Wants Justin Bieber to Apologize

Justin Bieber needs to think about his use of the subjunctive mood. An 11-year-old U.K. student wrote a very critical note to Bieber about a grammar issue in his 2012 song "Boyfriend." In the song, Bieber tells an unnamed love interest that "if [he] was [her] boyfriend, [he'd] never let [her] go." According to the student, Bieber's verb use here is unacceptable. "Here you have clearly used the subjunctive mood incorrectly," he wrote. "The lyrics should, in fact, be 'If I were your boyfriend.'" Teacher Louise Williams posted the note to Facebook, where many commenters noted the boy's own poor grammar. Fortunately, Williams said the kid wasn't upset by the critiques.
