"Me and Ed aren't super close but he's someone who I consider a friend and I really appreciate his music," he explained. "I appreciate who he is as a person. He's an inspiration to a lot of young people -- he makes awesome music that people are inspired by and that people laugh to, cry to and I think it's important in music to have those people who bring the emotion out of you."

"There's something about him that just makes you like him. He's very likable and very, very talented," Bieber added.

The two worked together on Bieber's hit single, "Love Yourself," which Sheeran co-wrote.

"We found a sweet spot," Bieber said about their collaboration. "I think that he knows what sounds good range-wise in my vocals and he's got his ear to the streets. He's very relevant but knows his stuff at the same time, so he brings in stuff that he grew up listening to into what he's making now which is really neat."

Bieber, who recently deleted his Instagram account, said he hopes Sheeran continues to head down the right path.

"We gotta make sure he doesn't do something stupid to mess it all up," he concluded.
