Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant has lived in and been apart of the Hollywood lifestyle his whole career. Bryant knows what it takes to be in the spotlight, and how their are positives and negatives to that life.
With his experiences in Los Angeles, Kobe might be an expert on how to successfully be a celebrity. An article in the New Yorker Magazine shed light on who Kobe thinks will have a better career as a pop idol between Katy Perry and Justin Bieber:
Kobe Bryant and a business associate have a running bet on the staying power of the pop stars Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. Bryant, who wears self-discipline like a badge, has long favored the more predictable Perry’s odds, and found in Bieber’s recent tabloid episodes hints of a looming implosion: talent spurned. As he and the associate walked into the dining room at the Four Seasons, in downtown Miami, in late January, the associate, a Belieber, mentioned that Bryant had been giving him a hard time about it for years. He seemed almost ready to concede. That morning, elsewhere in Miami, Bieber had been caught drag racing and booked for driving under the influence.
