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.

    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.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
