Faced with constant media criticism over his every word and action, Justin Bieber can take solace in the fact that he has at least one staunch supporter among the young Hollywood set.

While attending the premiere of Justin Bieber’s Believe at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live, Kylie Jenner stuck up for her famous friend, calling him a good guy and a great friend.

“He’s always been so nice and he’s such a good guy despite what everyone says about him,” Kylie told E! News. “I think he’s amazing. He’s just been a great friend. He’s really cool. He’s humble.”

When asked if she thought the pop star was a cutie, Kylie didn’t hesitate to respond.

“Of course!” she said. “Doesn’t every girl think he’s cute?”

Hmm… Do we sense another Jenner-teen icon romance on the horizon? Say one along the lines of Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles? We’ll keep our fingers crossed!

Kylie attended the December 18 premiere alongside famously flirty best friend Jaden Smith and while the two were as playful as ever, both parties insist they’re just friends.

“I always see articles about who I’m supposedly dating and who I’m not,” Kylie wrote on Twitter recently. “As of now, I’m keeping that part of my life as personal as possible.”
