Carly Rae Jepsen on Justin Bieber's Negative Press

Justin Bieber has been receiving a good deal of negative press on his current tour, and his pal Carly Rae Jepsen has something to say:

Carly told E! News, "All I see is an incredibly hard worker and a man who's just passionate about what he does. Just putting it on himself to take on a lot all at once. I think if anything I'm inspired by how hard he works, and I definitely want to add that to my own mantra as just like working really hard and doing my thing."

How sweet is that? We always love when friends stick up for one another, and we agree -- Justin is definitely a hard worker.
