He's the reason that she's a star today, but Carly Rae Jepsen says she hasn't been keeping up with Justin Bieber 's activities lately. In fact, she claims not to be aware of any of the headline-grabbing things he's supposedly done over the past few months. Those things include, but are not limited to: abandoning his monkey in Germany, allegedly driving recklessly in his neighborhood, allegedly spitting on a neighbor during an argument and allegedly siccing his bodyguards on a photographer in Miami.
"I actually am so out of the loop on any of that, to be honest," she tells Billboard . "People are constantly, like, 'Is Justin OK?' I've not really noticed any of that."
But Carly, who's doing her own headlining tour this summer, adds that she still has Justin's back, because she feels that no matter what he does, he gets a bad rap.
"I feel like Justin's a guy who's working hard every day, and I think the media can sometimes be a little brutal with stuff and over-exaggerate things," she explains. "But I stand by him. I support him. I think he's a good guy, and he's doing the best he can."
