Jake T. Austin just defended Justin Bieber! When asked about the "Boyfriend" singer's controversial Calvin Klein ad campaign, he said that everyone just needs to give him a break.
“You know, people need to leave him alone because we’re the same age...he’s a good friend of mine and when he started dating Selena Gomez, that’s like my sister. So I was kinda overseeing [who she was into] and he came into the picture and I respected him because he’s a man," he told The DISHH.

"People look at him like he’s a little boy, but he’s a man. He handles himself, he takes care of his family, he loves his fans. He just doesn’t make 100 percent of the best decisions 100 percent of the time. You need to take the good with the bad, but he needs to make more music, period. If he made more music, and it’s amazing I feel all the negative press would be overshadowed.”
We're glad to know that he's not taking sides in Jelena's tumultuous relationship, but we're kind of impressed that he still thinks of Selena like his sister — especially because he's thrown shade at her in the past. Still, we had no clue he was that close to Justin! He just might be the biggest secret Belieber in the world.
