Chris Brown on Justin Bieber: 'I pray for him'

In a sign that we might have entered some bizarre celebrity parallel universe, Chris Brown said that he’s praying for Justin Bieber.

"I pray for him, I pray for myself. I think we both go through it because we're great artists and he's a big artist to his fans," Brown told Power 105.1.

Brown continued on the radio show saying that he and the young singer have something else in common: their treatment in the media.

When the R&B singer was asked about how he deals with the paparazzi, he said "It's sorta like what Justin Bieber's going through right now."

Brown, 23, also tried to explain why the 19-year-old pop sensation might be acting out. "Being young, having a limitless amount of income, whatever you wanna do as a young guy, and then at the same time, you don't have nobody that's gonna say, ‘Hey, bro, you look whack right now.'"
