Unlike Justin Bieber, when we mere mortals are having a rough day, we turn to our friends, alcohol or maybe if we’re lucky an expensive therapist offering happy-pills. Fortunately for Bieber, he doesn’t have to resort to such things because he has Will Smith to turn to.
Believe it or not, there’s been days where Bieber has been so depressed (one can naturally see how money and fame is continually doing this to celebrities) that he just couldn’t possibly get out of bed. The most recent time, Smith showed up to Bieber’s house, dragged him out of bed and took him out for some serious man-to-boy chatting. In all fairness, no one would blame anybody for holding out for Smith to drag them out of bed, if that were a realistic option. Bieber told friends later on that week, “Man, that makes me feel so loved. I woke up, and there’s Will Smith” Since that day, close friends have both confirmed that the two celebrities go for regular outings to hash out some of the emotions distressed Bieber might be going through. Smith is a very likely person for the young star to turn to. Having had to go through the rigours of fame at a young age as well, Smith is a sympathetic ear to the woes of Bieber. Rest assured everyone, confirmation has come through that apparently “Scientology” has yet to come up in any of these meetings.
What troubles could poor billion dollar Bieber be going through, one might ask. Well, the struggle from boyhood into being viewed as a full-fledged adult is frustrating enough for your average teenager, let alone someone trying to prove themselves to an entire planet rather than just their over protective parents. Even Smith commented that “he’d be some kind of weird robot” if he wasn’t displaying these growing pains. But of course, lest it not be forgotten, a teenager’s grieving process from a break-up can also take more time than would seem logical. The song “All That Matters” could quite easily be interpreted as a prime example that maybe Bieber is still in mourning. Given Smith’s current marital turbulence, this sounds like another pretty great way for the two celebrities to find common grounds.
Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are reportedly splitting up after rumours of Smith’s infidelity with one of his hot 23-year old co-stars, Margot Robbie. Despite going with the golden rule of cheating “deny deny deny” racy photo-booth evidence certainly could make the world think otherwise. Ever since Pinket Smith’s interview in April, media followers could probably see the divorce coming. It’s rarely a good indication for a marriage when your wife says, “You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror.” For those of you that aren’t married, this is in fact not an invitation to do whatever you want.
Fortunately, there is a silver lining to every cloud. Although it may be hard to take Bieber seriously as an adult when he’s still pining over his high-school sweetheart, anyone can appreciate that if you’re going to go through a teenage tantrum, if Smith can’t get you out of bed, then no one can.
