The Biebs has Kylie’s back! When Justin Bieber opened up about teen stardom in a new interview, naturally Kylie Jenner came up. After admitting that Kylie has been ‘tainted’ by the spotlight, Justin made a plea for people to cut her a little slack!
Both Kylie Jenner, 18, and Justin Bieber, 21, have spent a majority of their lives in the spotlight, which means they have dealt with plenty of haters. In a new interview with Billboard, Justin declared that Hollywood can be damaging to young celebs, and he specifically cited Kylie for being tainted by fame! But he wasn’t playing hater — Justin was actually defending Kylie! See what he said below!
“I want people to be more kind to young celebrities,” Justin said to Billboard. “Like Kylie. Look at her world: She has been living on TV since she was a kid. Every time she’s looking around she sees a camera, and that’s affecting how she’s thinking and how she’s perceiving people and why she has to do certain things…Situations that happen taint your mind, especially in this industry. Especially for girls.”
We have to say, we can’t argue with JB! Kylie has been on TV since she was first featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians at just 10 years old in 2007, so the public has literally watched her grow up — even in the awkward years! As Kylie mentioned when she admitted to getting lip fillers on an episode of KUWTK, she faces immediate judgement on everything because her life is constantly on camera. If looming cameras don’t mess with someone’s head enough, the public’s harsh comments definitely don’t help anything!
Justin even commented on that as well, adding that the pressure to look good just adds to the tainting! “Everything is so [based] on people’s looks and stuff … Look at the statistics on how many child stars have crumbled and turned out to be wack jobs. It’s because — it’s f***** up, bro, this lifestyle.”
You tell ’em, Justin! Although Justin and Kylie probably won’t be out of the spotlight anytime soon, hopefully people will hear the Biebs’ plea for people to be nicer to young celebs. Who knows…if the haters go away, maybe the camera won’t be so tainting anymore! Either way, it’s so nice to see one young star stand up for another!
