Smokey Robinson wants to have a long talk with Justin Bieber to lecture him on the importance of trying to be a good role model to his young fans.
Bieber, 20, has been in a downward spiral in recent months following a number of legal troubles, including a DUI arrest in Florida, allegations he threw eggs at a neighbor’s home in California and accusations he was involved in the alleged assault on a limousine driver in his native Canada.
Robinson, 74, has expressed a desire to help the kid realize how his actions affect his young fans.
“I know Justin pretty good. But I would love to sit him in a room somewhere and talk with him for an hour just one on one,” he tells People.com. “I would tell him that the guys that you’re doing this stuff for, and in front of, and with, they have nothing to lose. He’s not only living for himself anymore. He’s too popular. So his image, and what he does, has influence on a lot of young people, so he needs to think about that.”
Do you think Justin would be open to the idea of a sit down? What type of advice would you give him?
