When asked if he has advice for Justin Bieber, Leif Garrett might consider saying something like, ‘As a drug abuser, alcoholic, and ex-con for the past thirty years, I’m the last person to be giving anybody advice.” But, instead, he went with this.
“Do not believe your own publicity. Sussing out who your real friends are is full-time work. Every scum bag, every drug dealer, every chicken hawk wants a piece of you.”
I can’t help but feeling Leif is describing his own life, like just this past week. Leif also advised people to feed their pets vegan friendly diets and urged the Muslim Brotherhood to lay down their rebel arms in Egypt and seek a political solution. Once you tell an addict that their opinion matters, you can’t put that genie back in the bottle.
