Having grown up in the spotlight, Justin Bieber has a unique perspective on what it's like to be young person in the music industry.
During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, the singer was asked about meeting his self-proclaimed super-fan Billie Eilish for the first time, with whom he collaborated on a version of her song, "Bad Guy."
Bieber was emotional from the outset and said, "I wanted to protect the moment. We never know how many opportunities we’re gonna get with anybody. I’m tearing up just thinking about it, with the Kobe situation."
He continued, "I just wanted to be a good example... Yeah, I definitely feel protective of her." Eilish was clearly moved by Bieber's interview, and shared a clip from it on Instagram.
In the interview, Bieber also explained, "It was hard for me, being that young and being in the industry and not knowing where to turn. And everyone, you know, telling me they loved me and, you know, just turning their back on you in a second. So it’s hard because I want her to know that she can count on me."
Hailey Bieber's husband concluded, "So I just kinda, you know, let her do her thing and if she ever needs me I’m gonna be here for her." Basically, if Eilish ever needs any advice, it sounds like Bieber is only "one call away."
