During his appearance on Ellen, Kevin Hart openly weighed in on what some consider the self destruction of pop singer, Justin Bieber. While some of us point the finger at the fact that the singer has little self-discipline, the ‘About Last Night‘ singer feels different. He explained:

I’m a friend. If I say I’m your friend. I’m your friend. Regardless of what you’re going through. Uhhh, you know, the media has a way of pouring things on people, when they’re in a bad place. Justin’s a teenager. I called him. I said, ‘Look, when I was a teenager, I did stupid stuff too. That’s what you’re 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 that you made now. Learn from it. Grow up. Move on, but don’t keep giving them ammunition. And he understands that but you know, he’s 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 whose been in this position for his whole life so people don’t understand that.
