Justin Bieber’s grandparents recently told obscure UK Tabloid Sunday Express that they are very worried about the way he’s been acting lately, but the rest of Hollywood has apparently caught Bieber fever, because everyone is jumping to his defense like a 13-year-old Belieber with a twitter account and low self-esteem.
From shirtless romps, to delayed shows, to paparazzi beatdowns, Bieber is on a one way track to crazy town, population: Lindsay Lohan.
Will.i.am, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and some of the dudes from One Direction are all offering up their support to Bieber, like he’s got a terminal illness or something.
Bieber is really good friends with Jaden Smith and reportedly had a “good talk” with Smith patriarch Will Smith the other day, when Bieber tweeted, “love to big man Will Smith for the great talk yesterday. We know the truth and we must stand tall. Love u man! Thanks!”
Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith also wrote an entire blog post about the hazards of bullying teen celebrities (oy vey, amiright?) and while she didn’t name Bieber, it’s clear she’s referring to him.
“Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19-year-old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of supporting his family as well as providing the paychecks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well?" Jada wrote.
The other Will (Will.i.am) also called up the pop star to give him advice, “I already gave [advice] to him on the phone, he’s good, he’s a good kid. When you’re 17, 18, 19, 20 the world can get you off course but he’s gonna be alright. He has a good family, good people around him. Just every once in a while there’s a bump in the road.”
Other people leaping to Bieber’s defense (what exactly are they defending him from? H8rz?) include the dudes of One Direction.
“Although I don’t know him personally, I do wish the press would take it easy on @justinbieber,” wrote Louis Tomlinson.
Zayn Malik wrote, “@Louis_Tomlinson what a dude man : D ha got your back bro!! @justinbieber.”
In the words of one famous Youtube persona, “LEAVE BRITNEY JUSTIN ALONE!”
