Ed Sheeran can understand Justin Bieber’s “struggle” with a mop bucket.
Earlier this month the Baby singer was caught on tape urinating into the cleaning equipment at a restaurant in New York City.
While the star has had a lot of stick for the incident, Ed is a little more understanding.
The musician was rumoured to be dating Justin’s on/off girlfriend Selena Gomez, but the 22-year-old brushed off the gossip by bringing up the star’s embarrassing moment.
“Well she’s dating Bieber, isn’t she? And he’s pissing in mop buckets,” Ed countered when quizzed on Selena by MTV News.
“I pissed in a bin once… On a bus. Really late at night after a festival. So I can appreciate Bieber’s struggle.”
During the clip, Justin is also filmed having a random rant at former US President Bill Clinton.
The singer sprays a picture of the politician with cleaning liquid and exclaims: “Fuck Bill Clinton!”
“I do like Bill Clinton though,” UK star Ed continued.
“I met Bill Clinton; he’s a very nice guy. Yeah, Bill Clinton’s cool. But that’s kind of like the equivalent of me shitting in a shoebox and saying I didn’t like the Queen.”
Justin has since reached out to Bill to apologise for the incident.
The politician advised the 19-year-old to pick his friends wisely before accepting the apology.
‘@billclinton thanks for taking the time to talk Mr President. Your words meant alot. #greatguy (sic),” Justin wrote on Twitter afterwards.
Meanwhile it’s been reported Justin and Selena have rekindled their romance after the singer promised to “change his ways”.
