How does Justin Bieber handle his insane level of fame? Nash Grier, a close buddy of JB, has looked to The Biebs for the secrets to success — and he’s let them spill! Get the details on what Justin told Nash right here!
Nash Grier got his start by posting videos on the Web, so naturally he’s pals with the ultimate YouTube sensation, Justin Bieber. The 18-year-old Vine star has used his friendship with Justin as a mentorship too, gaining valuable insight into the world of being a superstar. So what did The Biebs have to say about dealing with fame and the haters that come with it? Let Nash tell you!
“I’ll go and talk with [Justin] and I’ll have one of the most normal, great conversations man-to-man and it’s just normal,” Nash told J-14. “He is famous, but I don’t see him as that. I just see him as a person….He’s just got a lot of knowledge and wisdom.”
Okay, so Nash didn’t quite let us in on Justin’s deepest secrets, but just hearing that JB is so down to earth tells us that Justin is doing something right — it’s not easy to stay humble when you’re as famous as The Biebs! Plus, Nash is on his way to superstardom himself, so clearly Justin’s advice is working!
But Justin would probably be willing to admit that he hasn’t always been the prime role model. He has gotten into his fair share of trouble, whether it was a DUI, a vandalism charge, or even just getting moody with the paparazzi. After having a realization about that, though, Justin now insists that he has a better head on his shoulders, which makes for a much more mature approach to dealing with the ups and downs of fame. Nash could certainly learn a lot from JB, and it sounds like he’s taking full advantage of that!
Although Nash didn’t mention how long he and Justin have been friends, we first saw them hanging out together at Coachella last year, goofing around with some hilarious man ponies. Even if they haven’t been pals much longer than that, Nash knows all about Justin’s rise to fame, and he can’t help admiring what Justin has done all on his own — and heck, we can’t blame him!
