TORONTO -- Singer Jann Arden has taken to Twitter with some advice for fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, who has been getting some bad press recently.

Arden says the teen sensation from Stratford, Ont., needs to take a break.

Bieber was booed when he arrived late for a concert in London last month. He later fainted backstage at another show, was taken to hospital and then was caught on camera clashing with a paparazzo. He also cancelled a performance in Portugal.

Meanwhile, Bieber's neighbour in Southern California has accused the 19-year-old of battery and making threats during an argument, and recently German authorities quarantined a monkey Bieber tried to take into the country during his European tour.

The singer has taken to Instagram to unload frustration over what he says are "all the countless lies in the press right now," denying rumours that he's going to rehab.

In a tweet on Wednesday night, Arden said "dear justin B. Please take a long break from your crazy career and get it together. The world will be here when you come to your senses."
