Washington: American rapper will.i.am feels that Justin Bieber needs to go through a heart break in order to get a rocketing career success.
The ‘Black Eyed Peas’ producer - who is currently working with the ‘Baby’ singer for their latest album – insisted that a ‘relationship drama’ with girlfriend Selena Gomez would lead Bieber to long-term success.
“Justin as an artist has to fight. Michael Jackson fought, Prince fought, the ones that stood around for a long time are the ones that are always fighting for something,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
“He’s gonna hurt. He’s going to go through relationship drama [and that will make him successful].
“We know the ones that get comfortable and then their career is short, ‘Oh I remember that one song he had, that was cool,’” he added.
