Jonas Brothers Give Troubled Justin Bieber Some Manly Advice

'He just has to get through a season of growth,' Nick says of Biebs' tabloid troubles.

If Justin Bieber is looking for some sage advice from some slightly more seasoned pop stars, the Jonas
Brothers
have some words of wisdom for the singer, who has been the subject of countless tabloid rumors and speculation over the last few months.

Between the never-ending interest in his on-again, off-again relationship with Selena Gomez and that recent video of him urinating into a mop bucket in NYC, the JoBros weighed in on it all when they stopped by Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday.

Joe’s thoughts on the matter were pretty simple, “Boys will be boys, I guess.”

The show’s host, Andy Cohen, noted that the group’s youngest member, Nick, 20, hasn’t publicly exhibited the same types of bad boy behavior as Bieber. “I’d like to think of myself as a man, he’s a … he’s a couple years younger,” Nick joked about Bieber, 19. Although he did have some encouraging words for him as well.

“Here’s what I’ll say is that everyone has to go through a period of growth,” Nick added. “I think he’s in that period now. I wish the best for him ’cause I do think he’s a talented person. But he just has to get through a season of growth.”

During his “season of growth,” Bieber is prepping the release of new music, which, according to his manager, Scooter Braun, should silence the critics and end the “witch hunt.” Bieber has teased out his lead single, “Heartbreaker,” over the course of the last few weeks through an ad for his latest fragrance, The Key, as well an a cappella Instagram clip. A release date for it, and his “music journal” album , has yet to be confirmed.
