Kid Rock is the latest celebrity to say he’s worried about Justin Bieber going off the rails.
Actor Channing Tatum has already voiced his concerns about the 19-year-old, Jon Bon Jovi slammed the singer for disrespecting his fans, and it’s even reported that Selena Gomez’s decision to break up with Justin was because he’s on a “downward spiral”.
Now 42-year-old Kid Rock has confessed that he’s seen it all happen before. And it never ends well for the young stars.
“Tell me if this is wrong… Justin Bieber (is) 100 percent like watching Vanilla Ice all over again,” Rock told Howard Stern on his Radio show. “It’s exactly the same.”
When Stern points out Vanilla Ice was a one-hit wonder, he replied: “As soon as Bieber has a hit, he’ll be like Vanilla Ice then.”
“The kid’s young, he’s got some money, he’s got the world in his hands,” the singer explained. “It’s just kind of sad to see him go down this trajectory. It’s going to be a very long ride down.
“We all know the story,” Rock continued. “I kind of feel for the kid, to be honest with you.”
Earlier this week, Bieber came third in a list of worst celebrity role models for kids.
