Oh isn’t that ironic? Things have gotten so bad for Justin Bieber lately that even Chris Brown is praying for the kid.
Via Page Six reports:
In a sign that we might have entered some bizarre celebrity parallel universe, Chris Brown said that he’s praying for Justin Bieber.
“I pray for him, I pray for myself. I think we both go through it because we’re great artists and he’s a big artist to his fans,” Brown told Power 105.1.
Brown continued on the radio show saying that he and the young singer have something else in common: their treatment in the media.
When the R&B singer was asked about how he deals with the paparazzi, he said “It’s sorta like what Justin Bieber’s going through right now.”
Brown, 23, also tried to explain why the 19-year-old pop sensation might be acting out. “Being young, having a limitless amount of income, whatever you wanna do as a young guy, and then at the same time, you don’t have nobody that’s gonna say, ‘Hey, bro, you look wack right now.'”
Brown then credited his team for helping him change for the better. “For me, I had the people that said it and it got through eventually, but I think right now, his team is wonderful.”
Brown, however, does not agree with how Bieber’s pal, Lil Twist, has been cast as a negative influence.
“I feel like the mainstream media—and I don’t care, I ain’t in it, this my own thing I’m gonna say about it—I just feel like they’re gonna target the little black boys around him and say, ‘Hey, so this is why he’s doing it,'” Brown said. He added that if he was the one hanging out with Bieber, the blame would have been put on him.
Breezy makes some good points but he still has a ways to go before he’s out of the woods himself. Riiiiight?
