Canadian superstar Michael Buble has stated that he thinks fellow countryman Justin Bieber has dealt with his fame ‘with dignity’, amidst a load of claims that Bieber is losing the plot and reaching boiling point.
Bieber has attracted a lot of controversy in the past couple of months, from saying that he hoped Anne Frank would have been a Belieber, to picking fights with paparazzi – and this has resulted in a lot of stories in the press questioning whether he’s cracking. But, singer-songwriter Michael Buble has showed his support for Bieber – describing him as ‘remarkable’.
Buble told The Daily Star:
“I’m glad I didn’t achieve fame until I was almost 30. I had become the man I am, the man I was going to be. If it had happened when I was 17 I would have been a prick. I think, for what Justin Bieber has been through, he is remarkable. He has handled it with dignity.”
“I am a fan of the way he handles himself. They should give him a medal for smoking a joint; it made him human – he’s just a kid.”
