Justin Bieber hasn’t exactly been putting his best foot forward in recent months. The pop star gets in fights, is disrespectful and hangs out with all the wrong people, and also just sort of acts like a little punk.
Considering he’s only 19 years old, Bieber should listen to his elders — especially when it comes to having a successful career in Hollywood. In this case, that elder is Mark Wahlberg. The pair has long talked about making a basketball movie together (and that plan is supposedly still a go), and Wahlberg also has a good deal of experience with being a young musician with a bad attitude. Surprisingly enough, even Wahlberg seems to be sick of Bieber’s behavior.
“Justin, are you listening? Don’t be so naughty,” Wahlberg says during a web chat with The Sun. “Be a nice boy, pull your trousers up, make your mom proud and stop smoking weed you little b**tard.”
“He’s a teenager living in a different day and age. I was in prison before I got a record out and I don’t think he’s been to prison,” Wahlberg continues. “He’s a nice enough kid and you’re going to be a teenager. But if you’re being a teen in the spotlight you’re going to be criticized for it. This career can be short-lived– you might as well be the best you can while you’re doing it.”
Do you think Bieber should take Wahlberg’s advice?
