Justin Bieber is no stranger to receiving strong media scrutiny, but it looks like he may have found a celebrity that supports him. According to an April 7 story by the Hollywood Gossip, it appears that Rob Lowe may have empathy for the much maligned Biebs.

In a recent interview with Oprah, Rob Lowe was asked about his feelings about the controversy surrounding the enigmatic heartthrob. While there have been many celebs that have declared the need for star to receive treatment, Rob took the opportunity to express support for Justin Bieber.

I have tremendous empathy...He makes really good music, but he knows the dark secret is 80% of his audience doesn't give a sh!t about his music. And he knows it. It bums him out." - Rob Lowe

Many have expressed shock at the idea that anyone could claim that Justin Bieber “makes really good music”, but there seems to be equally shocking that Rob Lowe is sympathizing for someone that most of the country considers to be a spoiled brat.

Do you think that Rob Lowe made a valid point about Justin Bieber? Do you think that the Biebs is bummed out because his fans do not care about his music?
