Justin Bieber Warned To Beware Of Chicken Hawks By Former Teen Idol Leif Garrett

BieberGarrettIf Justin Bieber wants to gaze into a crystal ball to see his future, he might just save himself the trouble and chat with former teen idol Leif Garrett. The 51-year-old entertainer, who’s seen more than his share of bad times recently, chatted with “fair and balanced” Fox News about advice he’d offer the mischievous 19-year-old entertainer.

Garrett’s pearls of wisdom include those evergreen staples:

• 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.

Whoa! (If by chance there are non-gays reading this, a “chicken hawk” is traditionally defined as “an older man who seeks young boys as sexual partners.”) Start writing the tell-all now, Leif!

    Its a different age now and Bieber has some powerhouses behind him in the entertainment industry. Garrett was small potatoes compared to the Bieber empire growing. I would be more concerned Justin would end up like Michael Jackson than Leif Garrett.

  • Jonas

    There should be a warning about Bieber and not the other way around. That boy is obnoxious on so many levels there isn’t enough bandwidth to write it all.

  • CaptainFabulous

    I just don’t see how the Bieber machine can keep going at this pace without imploding. At some point he’s going to hit a brick wall and we’re never going to see or hear from him again. There is just no way all the hype is sustainable, especially since his talent is non-existent.

    Hmmm….sounds like Leif may have been touched by an angel. I always wonder about these pretty boys in Hollywood and what happens/happened to them. I have this theory that what drove Jan Michael Vincent off the rails was that the casting couch made many appearances in his life. I read that he worked with Rock Hudson once. I can’t imagine Rock could keep his hands off of this apex of his taste in men. I think these otherwise straight boys who get seduced by money, power, roles, etc never can reconcile their behavior with their basic orientation. It’s like women who get raped who destroy their beauty so as not to be approached again. Look at present day Leif…look at present day Jan. Interesting.

    Leif Garrett in the 1970s with his lithe boyish build, puppy dog eyes, long flowing blonde hair and shiny spandex pants that hugged his little buttocks for dear life on stage…..how could that ever attract chickenhawks?

    Justin can sing. He is cute and has a cute butt too. I think the problem is most people don’t stop long enough to take a look at his TARGETED AUDIENCE (young pre-teen and teenage girls). Unlike Bow-wow, who had Omarion and other dl people to hang with, he is by himself in a vicious world that DOES require him to do crazy things to keep his name out there. Most of his antics point to his being a young gay twink but I see him as a lonely little little boy. Has anyone seen any pics of ANYONE his age he calls friends? I don’t mean girlfriends. I am talking about friends who are not kiss-ass flunkies or band members.
    Think about that for a minute. He reminds me an other middle-age people of Vanilla Ice, only not as sickening. He gave a VERY funny performance on Saturday Night Live earlier last season. That was when I really began to see him in a different light. And that butt shot he just released not only had me rolling but also realizing this kid is willing to take chances. No one seem to complain about FINALLY see the full moon.

    Ok, now for the record no he can’t. But Leif Garrett please stop talking and be in our hazy memory of yesteryear, thanks so much. Please people learn yer uses.

    Bieber is already going overboard on the tats. He’s only 19 and he already has a complete sleeve on one arm. At this rate, he will be completely covered by the time he is 25, except maybe for the face.

  • Caleb in SC

    @Bob LaBlah: The guy is 19 and looks like a 12-year-old. The butt shot, in my opinion, was little better than kiddie porn.

    Michael Jackson could have done so much good in the world with the money he made. Instead, he lived a quirky, hedonistic, unhealthy existence and died. With his money, Bieber could fund schools, scholarships programs, music programs, health clinics, and on and on. It’s time for him to wake up early in the morning and work. Idle minds tend to drift towards ego based decisions. If he found some cause that he was passionate about, he would have a reason to get up in the morning. Rebuild neighborhoods, help elderly by establishing a system of van rides to and from hospitals, meals on wheels, start a training program for trades such as electrical, plumbing, roofing, mechanics, computer technology, so that the fruits of his labor become a network of solid productivity. Oh, and fight the urge to put your name on everything you do, as this takes away from the work. Start co-op’s based on services. Have huge pools of people who join the co-op. If your talent is plumbing, log in hours at the co-op. Should the plumber need a nanny or a gardener or a mason, he or she could tap into the pool and take advantage of the service for free, for the hours logged in doing plumbing. The nanny, gardener, or mason could do the same for whatever service they’re in need of. Work, Bieber. Focus outside of yourself and be significant. When you are on your deathbed, you will be glad you turned things around and made it work. Good luck, young man. No more tattoos, time spent inking your vessel could be well-spent doing something productive.

    1EqualityUSA….are you effin’ serious? I laughed my butt off reading that you propose that Justin Bieber do something as mature and adult as rebuilding neighborhoods. Purchase a clue! He’s a kid with a ton of money. He’s going to buy fast cars and run girls. That is what kids his age do for goodness’s sakes. That said, JB’s butt shot was a little disturbing. I think he was teasing what I believe he knows is a niche gay fan base….i.e. he was being a bit manipulative.

  • hf2hvit

    Chicken Hawk? Isn’t Bieber an adult???

  • hf2hvit

    Gee, Leif…thanks for checking in…now please take Bieber with you when you go back.

  • QuintoLover

    @stanhope: Of course that’s what he’s GOING to do. What’s wrong with hoping he would ACTUALLY do something helpful?

  • Ogre Magi

    @Bob LaBlah: A young gay twink???? I thought he was a fundie christian

  • nf0603


    I don’t agree with you at all. Bieber is arguably more hated than he is liked. He has his fanbase but an even larger number of people who loathe him. Plus, he’s not gained any “older” fans either and his tweens are moving onto One Direction. There is no way in hell the kid who sang “Baby” will ever reach the level Michael Jackson reached… unless you think he’s going to be the next MJ as in having scandals that almost entirely damage his reputation. I can see that… I can’t see a 30 year old Bieber still being a huge pop superstar, nobody takes him seriously enough today and he’s done nothing to win over detractors.

  • alterego1980

    Bieber will continue to be in the news (read: tabloids) from here until his death be it 60 years from now or 6 months. But he gets to decide if it’s for good music and excelling at life, or will it be more like Lindsay Lohan and be a constant train wreck…His choice.

  • Tackle

    I disagree that Justin Bieber can sing. Like many singers today, his voice is autotuned. And even with that, it still sounds average. And I agree that Chicken Hawk does not apply to Justin because he’s a grown man. Leif should have known that. However I think what Leif really ment to say is,
    ( be aware of the gays). But he knows it’s not a politically correct thing to say.

  • Ed

    sorry, Leif, you’re too late. If he’s been being hit on, it started when his Mom threw him on the internet. If he doesn’t know how to say no to the guys, he doesn’t want to.

  • Bob LaBlah

    @Ogre Magi: Nah. Fundi Christians wait till the jog is over and then play grab ass in the shower. They wouldn’t dare show their slappable butts in public.
    Leif Garret ALWAYS looked high as a kite in every picture. He had a dead ringer gay porn star (the late Jeremy Scott) that was promoted as a look-a-like back in the day. I wondered back then who was getting him high off coke and banging his ass because he was a case where you just KNEW someone was hitting it. What else but a bitter, talentless washed-up ex-teen idol would tell someone whom he is twice their age to “watch out” for chicken hawks.
    Now I’m wondering what happened to that other sickening little twerp who I always wanted to put on all fours, stand in a chair and pee directly into his hole while he is pulling both cheeks open, Shawn Cassidy. Trust me, it was IMPOSSIBLE to get more sickening than him, not saying his brother David didn’t give him a run for the title. Joey Lawrence is another one who I bet spread that butt open once or twice and his star dwindled but drug use picked up.
