Kevin Hart Defends Justin Bieber’s Unruly Behavior: “He’s A Kid!”

By  | 

Justin Bieber has had a rough year, from multiple arrests to unruly behavior, the pop star just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. But according to Kevin Hart, the 19-year-old is just being a kid.

The comedian appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and during the interview, the Think Like a Man star defended his friend’s behavior. “I’m a friend. If I say I’m your friend, I’m your friend regardless of what you’re going through,” he told Ellen.

“The media has a way of pouring things on people when they are in a bad place. Justin is a teenager. I called him, I said ‘look, when I was a teenager I did stupid stuff too. That’s what your 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. Learn from it, grow up, move on,'” Hart explained.

“He is putting himself in position right now for them to keep on finding him and doing things. But ultimately he’s a kid. He’s a kid who’s been in this position his whole life. People don’t understand that,” he said.

“If I had Justin’s money at his age, and ya’ll cut me loose … Justin bought a monkey at one point in time. I was like ‘I probably would’ve done the same thing,” Kevin joked.

    This has become a cliche. How about if Bieber or anyone who is thrown into the real world when they are 10 of 15 yrs deal with it, and start to learn what to do and what not to do. If they are still a kid and or teenager at heart doing stupid things, just remain a kid or a teenager instead of entering the real world. When one enters a profession, able to earn money, buy a house and all that stuff. That’s basically what adults do and Bieber or anyone should obviously take those situations and adapt to it. If they don’t know how to cope with that, then just stay in school and live a normal life. Unfortunately, Bieber and his parents could not do that, when the opportunity of being a potential star and earning millions is staring right in their face. So, they made a decision to exchange a normal life for being a commodity in the music industry and everything that comes with the territory of being a celebrity.
