LOS ANGELES — A 11-year-old boy has called attention to a grammatical error in singer Justin Bieber’s song ‘ Boyfriend’. The boy particularly takes issue with the line, ‘If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go’.

The boy from Cornwall wrote a letter to the ‘Sorry’ singer to pick him up on the grammatical mistake he repeatedly made in the 2012 hit, Boyfriend.

In his letter, posted on Facebook by his teacher, he called attention to that the particular line ‘used subjunctive mood incorrectly’, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“The correct lyrics should, in fact be, ‘If I were your boyfriend’. This is a very common mistake made by the general public today; however, if role models (and popular singer/song-writers) such as you cannot use it, why should we make the effort to study and use such grammatical forms correctly?”

The boy added that he is disappointed that Bieber is ‘unable to follow what is considered to be the basics of the English language’.
