I thought this story contained more than a little irony, or perhaps egregious doublethink?

“My mom always told me there wasn’t a Santa,” Bieber said in a new interview…“This was her logic: She thought if I grew up knowing about Santa then finding out he wasn’t real, that it would be like she was lying to me. And then when she told me about God, I maybe wouldn’t believe her,” he explained. “So she just wanted to be straight-up and honest with me all the time.”

smirk  It is a little confusing, but he’s adorable and rich so he doesn’t have to show much cognitive ability to get by.

Irony, yes, but I agree with the mom’s underlying logic.  (She wanted him to wind up believing in God, and he, apparently does.)
