Justin Bieber (or Bizzle as his recent Instagram name change would suggest) has been through a lot lately. He’s been arrested for a DUI, had a quarter of a million people sign a petition to deport him, and most recently caught egging his neighbor on surveillance. Needless to say, the 19 year old has made some poor choices and his parents don’t appear to be doing all that much parenting.
In light of his recent shenanigans, PtB’s compiled a list of the best sage advice for the pop star from fellow celebs to even the FLOTUS herself:
From one golden-boy-turned-bad-boy to another, “Selena is a keeper…[S]top bullsh–ting with her…[You] belong together.” Awkward.
Considering he grew up in the spotlight as well, Joe shared some wisdom for the budding adult. “‘Watch the people around you and learn from their mistakes so you don’t make the same.” Hindsight can really be a pain sometimes…
Despite all the controversy regarding Miley (Wrecking Ball, Unitards, and Tongue Wags oh my), she did have a point when she noted that she doesn’t have a mug shot. On a recent interview with Jay Leno, she suggested the Biebs should “party at [his] house. Buy a house, and add a club to it” to avoid paparazzi and other troubles. Touché, Miley. Touché.
Justin, you really must have screwed up big time. Even the FLOTUS has something to say! The self-proclaimed Mom-in-Chief said, “I would pull him close…[and] be very present in his life right now. And I would probably be with him a good chunk of the time, just there to talk, to figure out what’s going on in his head, to figure out who’s in his life and who’s not.” Granted, Michelle’s advice may be geared more toward his parents, but the motherly concern is undeniable.
Ah, makes you wish for a simpler time, doesn’t it? Hard to believe that the punk we see in the news today used to be a Canadian kid with a hit song that now has almost ONE BILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE:
