The kids got a voice and he’s going to use it. During a recent radio interview, JB lashed out at Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and her sponsorship of the Commercial Felony Streaming Act, which would make it a felony to illegally stream copyrighted content online. Hit the jump to read the rest of the story.

Klobuchar “needs to know that I’m saying she needs to be locked up, put away in cuffs!” the pop star said. “People need to have the freedoms … People need to be able to sing songs. I just think that’s ridiculous.”

For personal reasons, Bieber has strong feelings on the subject.

The 17-year-old first rose to fame when videos of him singing popular artists’ songs, including those of his mentor Usher, went viral online. And he just broke a major record by becoming the first person to score 2 billion views on a YouTube channel. Even with all the success, Bieber wants to remain the humble kid from Canada and he insists he’s more than willing to let other struggling performers use his work for free.

“I check YouTube all the time and watch people singing my songs,” said Bieber. “I think it’s awesome.”

Despite his enthusiasm on the subject, a spokeswoman for Klobuchar told USA Today in a statement that Bieber has it all wrong.

“Justin Bieber must have been misled about the content of this bill,” the rep said. “It’s not about people posting their personal work on the Web. This is common sense legislation that passed through the Judiciary Committee with no objection from either party. The bill only covers the intentional commercial theft of things like books, commercial music and movies, including foreign piracy.

Perhaps Biebs should stay out of politics and stick to making music.
