Someone actually sticking up for Justin Bieber’s bad behavior on national television?!
That’s a first!
Bieb’s good bud Kevin Hart dropped by Ellen DeGeneres’ show this week to discuss the 4 dozen movies he’s had come out so far this year.
OK, maybe not 4 dozen but this guy seems to be in everything lately, right?!
Maybe the only guy getting more media attention right now is the Big Bieberoni!
Ellen asked Kevin if he had chatted with Justin since his many troubles of 2014. Kevin did not hold back and admitted to not only talking with Biebs, he defended Justin’s actions!
"I’m a friend, OK? If I say, 'I’m your friend,’ I’m your friend, regardless of what it is you’re going through. The media has a way of pouring things on people when they’re in a bad place. Justin’s a teenager. I called him, I told him, ‘Look, when I was a teenager, I did stupid stuff too. That’s what you’re supposed to do as a teenager. The job is to learn from the stupid mistakes that you make. Now you’re about to become an adult. You can’t make the same mistakes that you’ve made now. Learn from it, grow up, move on.’ But don’t keep giving him ammunition. And he understands that. He’s putting himself in a position for them to keep on finding him and doing things. But ultimately, he’s a kid!”
Ellen told Kevin that she’s glad he’s been there for Justin during this time in his life, and we agree. It’s nice to have someone in your corner when it feels like it’s you against the world.
But just because you’re a teenager doesn’t give you carte blanche to make the world your own personal playground!
There’s being a stupid teenager and then there’s being a menace to society.
We’re not exactly sure where JB lies on that spectrum - that’s for a judge to decide. But either way, he’s gotta clean up his act!
Be his friend, Kev. But sometimes, friends need to give each other some tough love and sound advice!
