It seems strange to say Smokey Robinson and Justin Bieber in the same breath, but apparently the Motown legend wants to talk to him.

According to People, Robinson would like to share some of his knowledge with Selena Gomez’s obsession. Smokey seems to think that Justin’s actions aren’t for him, but for the crowd he hangs with – and they don’t have anything to lose. Smokey’s solution is for Justin to divorce himself of all those negative influences and get himself together.

The 74-year-old said, “I know Justin pretty good. But I would love to sit him in a room somewhere and talk with him for an hour just one on one.” Considering that Smokey has been in the music business longer that Justin’s parents have been alive, he might want to consider having that talk.
