Miley Cyrus is offering advice to fellow pop star Justin Bieber after his erratic behavior of the past few months. The 20-year-old singer, who, like Bieber, grew up in the spotlight, told British tabloid The Sun, “I told Justin to take a bit of time out and people aren’t so obsessed with you and nitpick."
"He’s still stupid though,” she added. “But everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up, and he’s done dumb stuff. If it was your friend pissing into a mop box then you would be laughing, but because it’s Justin Bieber, then it’s really bad.”
Earlier this month, the 19-year-old singer faced backlash after a video surfaced of him urinating in a restaurant’s mop bucket while he was in New York City. With his friends around him, Bieber proceed to grab a spray gun filled with cleaning liquid and spray a photo of Bill Clinton on the wall. “F-ck Bill Clinton!” Bieber yelled, before heading back into the bar with his friends.
He later apologized to the former president. Aside from being caught urinating, Bieber has also gotten in trouble with paparazzi and fans. In March, for example, Bieber cursed out paparazzi and his bodyguards had to hold him back as he lunged towards the cameramen.
That same month, he reportedly showed up two hours late to a performance in London, angering his “Beliebers.” Scheduled to begin his performance at 8:30 p.m., Bieber did not hit the stage until 10:20 p.m. forcing many young fans -- whose parents had arrived to ferry them back home -- to leave without watching the show.
Even rocker Bon Jovi had something to say about Bieber’s antics. "Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool — you’re an a--hole. Go to [expletive] work!” the 51-year-old artist told the London Evening Standard.
Cyrus proceeded to explain why Bieber should take time away from the limelight. “When you’re not around, all they want is your music. They want to see what the next thing is,” she told The Sun. “But when your music is out they just want to talk s--t about you.”
