    No surprise, Justin Bieber's mom Pattie Mallette is the singer's biggest fan.

    So, of course, the loving mother couldn't help but slam the Recording Academy when asked about her son's much-buzzed-about Grammy snub.

    "I think they blew it," the super star's mama said with a smile in an interview with Fuse News. "It's my boy, I'm a little biased, but yeah, I just heard that he's had five No.1 albums, so I think his music is speaking for himself."

    You tell ‘em, mama Mallette!

    Although the "As Long As You Love Me" crooner has also expressed disappointment over his Grammy snub, the Bieb's mom believes it only makes the 18-year-old work harder:

    "I think it's kind of good in a way," she admitted. "It gives him something to strive for and a goal to go for."

    Someone else who agrees with Pattie's opinion? Grammy nominee Flo Rida, who's nominated for best Rap/Sung collaboration for his hit single "Wild Ones" featuring Sia.

    Although the rap star stayed mum when the topic of Grammy snubs came up last night at OK! magazine's pre-Grammy party presented by CIROC at Sound Nightclub in Hollywood, he immediately had an opinion when Bieber's name was added to the mix.

    "Oh yeah, definitely," the hit maker said. "You definitely reminded me of that. I think he definitely should have been nominated." 

    Biebs is also the most-followed person on Twitter

    As for the secret to Flo's success?

    "I realize as an artist in the business almost seven years that staying in the studio, making the sacrifices, being there, you know, gets you these nominations."

    The Bieb's new Believe Acoustic album skyrocketed to the top of the music charts, and he just became the first singer with five No.1 albums before his 19th birthday.
