Sting On Justin Bieber: 'It's Like He's In Free Fall'


Sting is the latest seasoned musician to raise questions about Justin Bieber's stability, saying the 19-year-old singer is in "free fall."

"Fame and ego and money can do terrible things. I know it's a cliche, but you still see people going through it," Sting, 61, told The Guardian. "Look at Justin Bieber -- it's like he's in free fall. I just hope he survives it because a lot of people don't. If I could give any advice to young musicians, it would be this: Just try and enjoy it, because that truly explosive bit doesn't last forever."

Sting's comments seem to come more from a place of concern than one of admonishment, unlike, perhaps, Jon Bon Jovi's or Olivia Wilde's remarks about the singer.

In addition to calling Bieber an "a--hole" for starting concerts late, Bon Jovi offered this advice to the singer: "Take him home, get out of the media, go sit home on a beach somewhere, get your head back together and know that your world will still exist when you're rested."
