The 'Yeah!' star added of Bieber, "As an artist, I think we are all going to experience some things that people may not necessarily understand ... (a performer's life is) a life that comes with a great deal of pressure ..."

"I think (Justin) has obviously taken the world on a journey. I am happy that I was at the beginning of and I am still a part of to this day, as a friend."

An insider recently told PEOPLE that the 'Baby' star Bieber is being supported by his wife Hailey Bieber and he "can't wait" to eventually get back to work again.
