Justin Bieber Announces Donation, Acoustic Concert for School Kids on 'Ellen' (Video)
Justin Bieber stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday to promote his new Christmas album and while he was there, he announced he was donating $100,000 to a Las Vegas elementary school and will perform an acoustic concert for the students in December.
Ellen DeGeneres has been highlighting Whitney Elementary School since the beginning of the season. Over 70 percent of the student population is currently without a permanent home and DeGeneres has vowed to help them, including the donation of a $100,000 check from Target.
Bieber announced he would match DeGeneres' gift and also travel to the school to perform songs from Under the Mistletoe, which was released Tuesday.
DeGeneres also talked to Bieber about all the photos of the tween singer kissing girlfriend Selena Gomez on the cheek.
"It seems that you and Selena find mistletoe everywhere you go," DeGeneres said. "First of all, it must be nice to finally not have to hide and run away. It must be nice you can be open about your relationship."
"She has very kissable cheeks," Bieber replied.
"I think that's really sweet," DeGeneres said. "Is that easier that you don't have to hide and do stuff like that anymore?"
"You know I feel like I only live once. It sucks to always have to hide it. I just kind of do me, I guess," Bieber said.
"You should do you," DeGeneres said. "You're a good person to do."
