A self-confessed weed-lover is speaking out on the latest star news about Justin Bieber‘s supposedly shocking new, um, hobby.

The guy is Tommy Chong and he seems to suggest that the world-famous pop superstar’s fans shouldn’t be worried about their idol smoking marijuana because it’s the REASON for his awesomeness!

The “Cheech & Chong” star told reporters in Los Angeles on Sunday:

“I knew [Bieber] was smoking before he knew it. Because of his music. Because of his dancing. The guy is a phenom … It’s not just his looks. It’s his talent.”

He continued:

“You don’t get talent like that by drinking alcohol. The herb, man! The herb!”

Obviously, he thinks all other talented celebrities are on weed these days. Chong explained:

“Weed is mainstream as can be.”

Can you believe this guy?
