Michael Bublé supports Justin Bieber: "He's just a kid"

Michael Bublé has backed Justin Bieber after a turbulent few months.

The 19-year-old singer has been the subject of a number of negative headlines recently, with his UK tour fraught with bad press.

Speaking to the Daily Star, fellow Canadian Bublé said that Bieber should actually be praised for the way he handles himself in the face of adversity. The crooner said:

"I think, for what Justin Bieber has been through, he is remarkable. He has handled it with dignity. I am a fan of the way he handles himself. They should give him a medal for smoking a joint; it made him human - he's just a kid."

Bublé meanwhile added that he is relieved that he didn't find fame until he was more mature. The singer said:

"I'm glad I didn't achieve fame until I was almost 30. I had become the man I am, the man I was going to be. If it had happened when I was 17 I would have been a p****."
