Kelly Osbourne defends Justin Bieber

KELLY Osbourne thinks Justin Bieber should be allowed to make mistakes.

The 'Fashion Police' co-host, who became friends with the 'Baby' hitmaker when he gave her a graffiti lesson in January, says the 20-year-old singer deserves "a break" because it is difficult to grow up in the spotlight.

The 29-year-old star, who was thrust into stardom with the success of her family's show 'The Osbournes,' when she was a teenager, told the HuffPost Live: "Even Justin Bieber, it's not fair. Because if you remember, when I was 16, all of a sudden I was one of the most famous 16-year-olds in the entire world. And it happened overnight -- and there wasn't Twitter then. Every teenager deserves to make a mistake and act out and learn from them.

"And how can they learn from their mistakes if there's always somebody there trying to fix it for them and no one actually trying to help them? So in that situation, when it comes to Justin Bieber, I find it really unfair. I think people need to give the kid a break."

The 'Beauty and A Beat' hitmaker is set to appear in court in Miami on May 5 after he was charged with driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving without a valid licence, all of which he has pleaded not guilty to.
