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