Justin Bieber is "stupid" and should take some time off, according to Miley Cyrus.

Right. Justin Bieber's career has gotten so ridiculous, he's getting advice from Miley Cyrus.

But Cyrus does know about doing goofy thing growing up in the spotlight. And Bieber, who has had a crazy year, probably could use some words of wisdom.

"I told Justin to take a bit of time out and people aren't so obsessed with you and nitpick," the 20-year-old singer told the U.K. paper the Sun. "When you're not around, all they want is your music. They want to see what the next thing is. But when your music is out they just want to talk (expletive) about you."

According to the Huffington Post, it sounds like they've had the conversation more than once, since Cyrus said she "always (tells) him just to be cool and not talk about it because when you talk it fuels the fire."

I don't think he's listening to her.

"He's still stupid though," Cyrus said of Bieber. "But everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up, and he's done dumb stuff. If it was your friend (urinating) into a mop box then you would be laughing, but because it's Justin Bieber, then it's really bad."

Cyrus, of course, referred to just the most recent bit of controversy, when footage surfaced of Bieber urinating into a mop bucket in the back of a restaurant, then cursing at a picture of Bill Clinton hanging on the wall.
