Justin Bieber is being a bit of a nightmare lately: Friends racing his Ferrari through a residential neighborhood where kids play in the street, trying to fight paparazzi, peeing in a mop bucket in a restaurant, spitting in the face of a DJ, dissing Bill Clinton, the list goes on.
One person trying to get him to calm the hell down is another former teen idol who is no stranger to controversy: Miley Cyrus. The celebrated twerker told The Sun that she has tried to get Bieber to knock it off, but he’s “still stupid.”
“I told Justin to take a bit of time out and people aren’t so obsessed with you and nitpick,” she said.
“When you’re not around, all they want is your music. They want to see what the next thing is. But when your music is out they just want to talk s**t about you. When you’re a worldwide star, everyone sees everything. Lots of people make a video and put it on Instagram, some people might think it’s funny but because it’s Justin Bieber, it’s really bad.”
“I always tell him just to be cool and not talk about it because when you talk it fuels the fire. He’s still stupid though. But everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up, and he’s done dumb stuff.”
“If it was your friend p***ing into a mop box then you would be laughing, but because it’s Justin Bieber, then it’s really bad.”
No, we’re pretty sure if it was anyone it would be really bad.
Cyrus’ willingness to discuss Bieber’s bad behavior stands in stark contrast to his on-again, off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez, who fled an interview when asked about that very subject earlier this week.
