Rob Lowe has said he has 'tremendous empathy' for Justin Bieber saying he feels the singer is 'bummed out' that his fans don't care about his music.

Speaking on Oprah Prime, the 80s teen idol and Behind The Candelabra star commented on Bieber saying, "He makes really good music, he does, but I think he knows the dark secret, and the dark secret is 80% of his audience doesn't give a s*** about the music, and he knows it, and it bums him out."

He continued, "They care about lemming-think, and their girlfriends and who's oohing and aahing and screaming. It has nothing to do with what he's doing as an artist. He is the guy who is standing in front at a moment that they're going through a developmental thing. It's natural, it's all great, but if it wasn't him, it would be somebody else, like it was me."
