Belieb that this just happened! Justin Bieber debuted a very Kate Gosselin circa 2009 hairstyle at the VMAs on Sunday, Aug. 30, and the former Kate Plus 8 reality star is speaking out about the hilarious comparisons.
"I do see some resemblance to my former hairstyle—Justin's is a current take on it, yes!" Gosselin, 40, told Cosmopolitan.com. She then quipped, "And it's okay, he can have it!"
She's not the only one who sees it. Once web commenters started to note the twinning, Bieber took to his Instagram page, where he posted side-by-side photos of himself and Gosselin rocking the same floppy blonde 'do.
Hair jokes aside, the Dancing With the Stars alum, who famously shares eight children with ex-husband Jon Gosselin, believes that his sense of humor is a step in the right direction for the troubled pop singer. "I love the fact that he's willing to laugh at himself with this post because that shows signs of maturity," she mused. "You have to be comfortable enough to take what people say about you and laugh. He did, and so thumbs-up, Justin!"
Gosselin went on to say that she remembers meeting Bieber when he was "younger…really polite and sweet!" "Everyone makes mistakes, and they never go unnoticed when you're in the public eye," she said, "but as a mom, I wish him the very best in everything he does in life."
She also thanks him for the cool-mom points the association has won her at home. "My girls are beyond thrilled that he Instagrammed pics of us," Gosselin shared. "To top it off, Mady found his Instagram at the same time as I did this morning—on the bus on the way to school, no less. Her response was, 'MOTHER, WHAT THE HECK?' in all caps, which I interpreted as approval and excitement!"
