This will come as a huge relief to Bieber, who announced in February that he is a longterm fan of Craig’s, and the pair performed Craig’s rumpo-based pop behemoth '7 Days’ on stage at London’s O2 last month.
“He’s a really, lovely, talented kid,” Craig says of Justin.
“He’s very sharp and he’s got a very dry sense of humour. He’s a cool kid. I think he’s got an ability, with all this craziness going on, to be very relaxed with everything, and I think he’s got good people around him. I hope that continues into his 20s.”
No news on whether Craig would like Justin to have a very tidy beard. We'll keep you posted.
