London - Ricky Gervais has joked he would send Justin Bieber to bed if he was his manager.

The 'Muppets Most Wanted' actor admits he wouldn't be very good at managing other people's careers because he's a "control freak", but he thinks the troubled pop star would benefit from staying away from the limelight for a bit following his recent run-ins with the law.

When asked if he would manage the 20-year-old singer's career, Ricky told E! News: "I have trouble managing my own [career]. I give myself terrible advice. I don't think I could manage anyone else because it'd be too frustrating. I'm a control freak, so I can make me do what I want but I couldn't make other people. I'd send him [Justin] to bed.

I'd go, 'Go to bed, Justin'."

Meanwhile, the 'Baby' hitmaker has hit the headlines recently following his arrest in Miami in January after he was allegedly caught

drag racing, which resulted in him being charged with driving under the influence (DUI), driving without a license, and resisting arrest.

Justin could also face felony charges in California after he allegedly egged one of his neighbours' homes, causing $20,000 of damage.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney is currently reviewing the evidence and deciding whether to press charges against the star. - Bang Showbiz
