Justin Bieber may only be 18 years old, but in a new interview with Radio Disney’s Celebrity Take with Jake, he proves that he’s wise beyond his years when it comes to knowing the key to a successful relationship. For Bieber, the secret ingredient to a healthy love life can be summed up in just one word: honesty.
“You just have to be honest, that’s the first thing, because if you’re not honest, then the relationship is just not a good relationship,” Biebs shares. “At the end of the day, your girl would appreciate you being honest more than lying to her and vice versa.”
Bieber, whose latest single “Boyfriend” hit the airwaves on March 26, also went on to describe a few other qualities that help make him suitable boyfriend material for his adorable girlfriend Selena Gomez, who he began dating in 2010. “I’m loving and patient and kind and gentle,” the pop singer admitted. No wonder Gomez, 19, and the rest of the world, is so smitten with the Biebs.
The rest of Hollywood would do well to follow in this couple’s wise footsteps. If their relationship can survive a paternity scandal and fan death threats at such a young age, then they just might be able to seriously withstand the Hollywood test of time.
