Channing Tatum Is Worried About Justin Bieber. In an interview for Vanity Fair's July issue, the Magic Mike star and new dad talks about fatherhood, study drugs, and the effects of fame. Tatum referred to the downsides of becoming a celebrity at a young age, noting that "whatever age you become famous, you end up staying that age." He then specifically expressed his concerns about the world's most famous teen star, Justin Bieber:
"I worry about Bieber, man. That kid's wildly talented. I hope he doesn’t fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it’s so hard for someone to be responsible when they're not asked to be. We're not asked to do things ourselves. You have someone there with a coffee. 'You want food? I'll get you food.' I put my bag in the trunk yesterday—I can't drive here—so my driver, great guy, Terry, amazing, I call him T-Bone, I drop my bag in and left the trunk open. And I get around to my door, and I'm like, 'What the fuck am I doing? That's not my behavior.' "
Tatum is not the first celebrity to express concern for the Biebs. It seems like every actor, director, musician, and athlete has tried to offer advice to the young pop superstar:
Miley Cyrus: “I noticed he was taking all these photos of people and doing a lot of s**t, and I just grabbed him and said, 'Just take a snapshot in your brain of this moment, so you don’t forget.'" (E!)
Joey Fatone: "Don't be a douche. That's plain and simple. You get this bug from the celebrity thing, where you're very on top of the world and everyone's 'yes sing' you to death, so you're like "I can get away with this. I can do that." (Huffington Post)
Nick Carter: "Stay healthy and just treat people good, you know what I mean?" (On Air with Ryan Seacrest)
Mark Wahlberg: "I think it's best to put down the phone and Twitter and all that stuff, and just be a little more low-key right now. Because they're watching every move he makes, everything he says, and less is more. Go take a vacation." (Vulture)
Judd Apatow: "You don't need a monkey. That's a good rule of thumb for show business: you don't need a monkey." (Buzzfeed)
Alice Cooper: "Justin, just as a note of professional rock & roll, never turn your back when you throw up. Let the audience see you throw up…because that's a moment they're gonna remember. Make sure the lights are on when you throw up." (Rolling Stone)
Olivia Wilde: "Bieber, put your f**king shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt.)" (Twitter)
Former NFL running back and Bieber neighbor Eric Dickerson (on the young star's driving habits): "@justinbieber needs to slow his ass down" (Twitter)
Bon Jovi (on Bieber's late arrival to a London concert): "You're an a**hole. Go to f**kin' work!" (London Evening Standard)
