Chad Kroeger is disappointed in Justin Bieber. The Nickelback singer was asked about his fellow Canadian star during a radio interview on Friday, and after initially laughing at the question, gave a pretty serious answer. Listen to his thoughts on The Biebs below.

Kroeger said, “I think that you gotta be careful when you’re handing someone that young the keys to the kingdom. He went on to say, “When you give someone that young that much money and that much carte blanche to just do whatever you want to do, things are going to run amok, and we’re all going to get to stand back and watch the wheels fall off the train.”

“I had high hopes for him,” added Kroeger. “Because I really wanted him to turn into kind of a Justin Timberlake… and I think he’s going to look back on this time in his life and he’s going to be ashamed of the things that he’s done. And it’s really too bad, because he is talented, and it’s just a bit of a letdown.”
