Miley Cyrus knows a thing or two about growing up in the public eye and she has a few words of wisdom for her pal Justin Bieber, who has done more than his share of acting out in bizarre ways this past year.
“I told Justin to take a bit of time out and people aren’t so obsessed with you and nitpick," the 20-year-old singer told the U.K. paper The Sun. "When you’re not around, all they want is your music. They want to see what the next thing is. But when your music is out they just want to talk shit about you."
It's a conversation Cyrus and Bieber seem to have had on more than one occasion, since Cyrus says she "always [tells] him just to be cool and not talk about it because when you talk it fuels the fire."
It doesn't sound as though Bieber is very good at taking advice, since in the next breath Cyrus admits:
"He's still stupid though. But everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up, and he’s done dumb stuff. If it was your friend pissing into a mop box then you would be laughing, but because it’s Justin Bieber, then it’s really bad.”
Cyrus is, of course, referring to Bieber's latest debacle, which involved video footage of him peeing into a bucket in the back of a restaurant, and swearing at a photo of Bill Clinton that was hanging on the wall.
