Justin Bieber always seems to get the media buzzing with his antics, but are they too hard on the X Factor mentor? We know that Bieber thinks so, but apparently, he’s not the only one! In fact, Bieber’s good friend, Carly Rae Jepsen recently spoke out about the buzz surrounding Justin.
Who knew that Carly Rae Jepsen would be one to defend Justin Bieber? Apparently, the pair are friends, and in a new interview, Jepsen did just that.
When questioned recently for an interview with Billboard about the drama that is constantly surrounding Justin Bieber, Jespen was quick to defend her friend. “I feel like Justin’s a guy who’s working hard every day, and I think the media can sometimes be a little brutal with stuff and over-exaggerate things. But I stand by him. I support him. I think he’s a good guy, and he’s doing the best he can,” Jespen explained, adding that she is so busy, she doesn’t get much of a chance to keep up with all the headlines.
Justin Bieber has making headlines all year long, from drinking, reckless driving, and being attacked on stage, to his on again-off again relationship with Selena Gomez. Recently, when fans booed him at the Billboard Music Awards, Bieber told the crowd: “I’m 19 years old. I’m an artist, and I should be taken seriously. This other bull should not be spoken of.”
