Legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi decided to give the young buck Justin Bieber some advice in the only way that got his point across....the' Jersey Way.'


Jon recently sat down with a British newspaper, the evening standard, and was asked about Justin's consistent tardiness at his own shows.


It's not often you get career advice from a legend like Jon Bon Jovi, so the 'biebs' better listen.  Bon Jovi 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 -- you're an a**hole.  Go to f***in' work!"


So, would now be a good time to ask about Richie Sambora leaving the band's tour, with no hint as to when he'll be back?


Sure, why not.


'It’s getting more and more difficult every day to not just sit here and say something... Because all I can say is this -- it's for personal reasons," Jon told the paper.  "You have a choice -- you either figure it out, go and grow, not only survive but thrive. Or, you say, 'I hate my brother and I'm gonna quit the band.'
