After Bieber's arrest Thursday morning for drag racing and DUI in Miami Beach, Vanilla Ice was quick to chime in with some advice-vice-baby for the teen pop star:
Zach Braff also weighed in on the matter:

But even before Bieber's latest scandal, celebrities of all levels of fame were swarming to set him on the right path.
Back in August, another former teen icon, Leif Garrett, tried to keep Bieber from getting trapped in the spiral of addiction that marked his own downfall. "Do not believe your own publicity," Garrett told Bieber through an interview with Fox 411.
"Sussing out who your real friends are is full-time work," he added.
Months earlier, Channing Tatum also expressed his concern for Bieber. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Magic Mike star worried that the Hollwood lifestyle made it hard for younger starts like Bieber to build character: "That kid's wildly talented. I hope he doesn't fall down into the usual ways of young kids because it's so hard for someone to be responsible when they're not asked to be."
Joey Fatone, no stranger to life in the pop limelight, put his advice in frank terms during an appearance on HuffPost Live: "Don't be a douche ... plain and simple."
Meanwhile, frequent collaborator Will.i.am told his co-performer at the Billboard Music Awards to keep his head down and "just continue to love music."
"We've all had the privilege and the benefit of growing up not under the microscope," the Black Eyed Pea explained. "He's going to have the challenge of ignoring the microscope."
Finally, in May Bieber received a piece of advice from the man who made his career. "We hope that in his transition – as friends and family who have helped him to be who he is – that he will continue to just mature," Usher told Ellen DeGeneres after the pop star's spring of scandals.
If he does, he'll have no shortage of big brother figures eager to claim credit.
