Motley Crue Offer Justin Bieber Advice on Bad Behavior

Now that Motley Crue are saying goodbye to several decades of decadence with their farewell tour, the search is on for someone to pick up where the self-styled bad boys of rock are leaving off.

The subject came up during the band’s recent interview with Q Magazine, with frequently arrested tween heartthrob Justin Bieber being named as a possible replacement. Not surprisingly, the idea was kind of funny, although the Crue did concede that he’s well on his way to building the kind of rap sheet that might one day fill a regretful memoir.

“Let’s give him a little bit of credit,” said bassist Nikki Sixx. “He started with the eggs, which was a little weak — a poor start. Then he got arrested in Miami for drag-racing, and that was kinda cool — he was under the influence. Then he got arrested in Toronto and turned himself in. So he’s getting better, but he has work to do.”

“He has to beat someone with a chain, or something — or get into a fight with a cop,” suggested Vince Neil. “The next thing he’ll get arrested for is toilet-papering a house.”

Of course, it’s all fun and games until someone snorts a line of ants off the ground, as the band witnessed Ozzy Osbourne do during a particularly memorable stay at a Ritz Carlton during the ’80s. “We were full on, even though it was a nice five-star joint with families and kids by the pool,” recalled Tommy Lee. “The bar asked us to move outside, and I think somebody looked down and saw trails of ants. Once Ozzy saw that he got on his knees and snorted it up.”

“Sick man,” added Sixx. “We’re amazed he’s still alive. Ozzy more than any of us.”
