Sting has described Justin Bieber as being in free fall and wishes him well.

In an interview with The Guardian Sting said, "Fame and ego and money can do terrible things. I know it's a cliché, but you see people going through it."

"Look at Justin Bieber, it's like he's in free fall. I just hope he survives it because a lot of people don't."

He continued, "If I could give any advice to young musicians, it would be this: just try and enjoy it, because that truly explosive bit doesn't last forever."
