Justin Bieber's been getting a lot of heat these days, but his celeb pals are sticking by his side through thick and thin.

Carly Rae Jepsen is just the latest star to defend the "Boyfriend" singer.

The songstress told Billboard, "I stand by him. I support him. I think he's a good guy, and he's doing the best he can."

And she's not alone…

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith both publicly revealed that they've got the Biebs' back.

Will told U.K.'s Capital FM in April that he sympathizes with the young star and his overwhelming rise to fame.

"There are things that are just simple and normal for a 19-year-old to do, just when I was 19 there was no Twitter, the things that I was doing—I was able to have privacy because everybody's phone didn't have a camera on it," he said.

Jada also called out Bieber bullies on her Facebook Page, saying: "Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19-year-old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of supporting his family as well as providing the paychecks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well?"

The Biebs has support from some of the most famous faces in the music industry as well.

Miley Cyrus and One Direction's Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson have all come to the singer's defense.

Tomlinson tweeted, " "I really do empathise with him, I don't see anything out of character in comparison to any other teenagers I know ."

One of Bieber's biggest mentors has also spoken highly of the 19-year-old.

Usher told Ellen DeGeneres in May that he was "hoping for the best" for Biebs and that the two "talk as much as possible."
