Channing Tatum Has Some Advice For Bieber
It seems like every celebrity has some kind of advice for Justin Bieber. Pretty soon Amanda Bynes is going to be giving advice to the 19-year-old wild child. You know, celebrities always hate on the media for getting too involved in their lives, but here they are gossiping about one of their own. Interesting, huh? It just proves that everyone secretly likes to gossip.
Anyway, Channing talked to Vanity Fair recently and he explained why he thinks he has stayed so grounded,
“I don’t remember who said it, but I do believe that whatever age you become famous, you end up staying that age. Because from that point you’re not asked to be a normal citizen. I broke through at 24 or 25. I had lived a pretty diverse life. When I was finally making money, I knew exactly what I needed…$5.67. I’d have one meal a day. I would go to Checkers and get the No. 1 with everything.”
And then he started to talk about Mr. Bieber…
“I worry about Bieber, man. That kid’s wildly talented. I hope he doesn’t fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it’s so hard for someone to be responsible when they’re not asked to be. We’re not asked to do things ourselves. You have someone there with a coffee. ‘You want food? I’ll get you food.’ I put my bag in the trunk yesterday – I can’t drive here – so my driver, great guy, Terry, amazing, I call him T-Bone, I drop my bag in and left the trunk open. And I get around to my door, and I’m like, ‘What the f–k am I doing? That’s not my behavior.’”
You know, that’s really a smart way to look at the Bieber situation. Justin Bieber went from this little kid tucked away in Canada, to the most popular teenager in the world in just a few short years. He can really do almost anything he wants, and I am sure he feels like he will never get in trouble. He’s above the law. The rules don’t apply to him because he is f–king Justin Bieber! He has money, fame, a hot girlfriend and expensive cars.
I think he’ll be alright, though. I’m sure he’ll cross the line pretty soon and learn the hard way, but I think that is what he needs. He needs to get into some serious trouble to realize that he really can’t do anything he wants. There are limits! And I am not just talking about all the speed limits he seems to enjoy breaking.
