Ryan Sheckler is the skating world’s equivalent of Justin Bieber — rising to fame at a young age — and he had some words for the Biebster on how to handle his own notoriety.
“All I did was to think that it can be taken away at any point in time,” Ryan, 20, told OK! at the Ryan Sheckler Celebrity Skin Classic at Trump International Golf Course in Palos Verdes, Calif. on Tuesday. “It’s all a gift from God in my eyes.”
At the tender age of 13, the San Clemente native became a professional skateboarder, had his own reality show on MTV titled Life of Ryan, and has won three gold medals at the X Games.
“[Justin] can live his life,” he goes on confidently about Bieber. “He knows what’s up. He will be fine.”
But unlike the rest of us, Ryan is not suffering from any Bieber fever!
When asked what his thoughts were on the Biebster’s recent laser-tagging incident in Canada, he responded: “I don’t know any of these Justin Bieber stories!”
