Justin Bieber’s star quality has had a fall from grace over the last few months, and the growing backlash against the star was clear to see when he received a chorus of boos at the Billboard Awards on Sunday before accepting his Milestone Award.
And it seems the teen star’s wayward ways has promoted rock singer Jon Bon Jovi to issue the popstar with a word of warning to clean up his act or run the risk of losing his devoted fanbase.

Speaking to The Telegraph about the Boyfriend singer, the veteran musician admitted that his tardy behaviour, which saw him keep fans waiting for two hours during a concert night on his Believe tour in London at the O2 in March and again in Dubai this month was "disrespectful".
"They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives - or in that kid's case, 80 minutes of their lives," the Because We Can singer said.
"Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won't have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It's really not cool."
Bieber felt the full force of disgruntled fans over his diva behaviour on Sunday night at the music event when he was made to justify his win, telling the audience that he was doing a pretty good job considering his age.
"I'm 19 years old. I think I'm doing a pretty good job," he told the crowd.
Adding that he felt he should be judged according to his music: "From my heart I really just want to say it should be about the music, about the craft. It should be about the music. This is not a gimmick. I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously. This other bull should not be spoken of."
