Justin Timberlake Thinks Justin Bieber Should Have a Long-Term Plan for His Career
Justin Timberlake has plenty of experience in the entertainment industry, and now the multi-talented star is dishing out some sage advice to 17-year-old Justin Bieber.
"Justin's great. He's obviously a talented kid," the 'Social Network' actor said in a recent interview. "I just hope he has a good support system, because I think back on myself wearing the cornrows. It's awkward growing up in front of the public. Justin's probably dealing with that on some level now."
JT got his start as a part of the Disney Channel's 'Mickey Mouse Club,' which cultivated celebs like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. He went on to become a member of the boy band 'N Sync, and later pursued a successful career as a solo artist and actor.
"Somebody like Usher mentoring him is great because Usher is somebody who's had a lot of ups and not a down that I can remember. He'll teach him that you can't just ride this out. You need to have somewhere to go. You need to have a plan, and somebody like Justin Bieber should be thinking about that right now. Otherwise, before you know it, there's going to be some kid who's younger than you. We just live in that age."
