Justin Bieber will soon turn 21-years-old and has apparently been doing a little soul-searching.
Bieber posted a video to fans apologizing for “pretending to be someone else”. Is he sincere or is this a play to get Selena Gomez back?
The past couple of years we’ve reported on Bieber’s arrests, spats with neighbors, disputes with other celebrities, mistreatment of airplane staffers, and acting like a little brat.
But Justin claims he is trying to move away from those actions and be a better person.
This revelation comes after Justin’s appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, which airs on Thursday. Bieber told DeGeneres and the audience he was “a little nervous.”
He explained, “I just get nervous around crowds when I’m not singing. Just naturally I’m a performer, but to sit down and be on camera and have to say things like ya know?”
Ellen tried to put him at ease, stating, “You know I think a lot of people that are in this business people don’t understand that you can be an extrovert when you’re performing, but an introvert all other times.”
Bieber said, “I wanted to make a video because I wanted to express how I feel right now. Today I was on Ellen and it was a lot of fun. She’s amazing. But I was really nervous, and I think I was nervous because I was afraid of what people are thinking about me right now. It’s been a minute since I’ve been in a public appearance and I didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited – basically how I’ve been acting the past year or a year and a half.”
He continued, “I’m not who I was pretending to be. And why I say pretending is often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover-up of what we’re truly feeling inside. There were a lot of feelings going on in there — just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Growing up in general is hard.”
Bieber said being on Ellen made him think about how the world sees him.
Here is The Biebs video message (NSFW with offensive language):
We truly hope he has changed his ways, but we wonder if being exposed for “faking” his underwear ad knocked him down a peg. And we imagine he is sad that Selena Gomez has moved on with DJ Zedd. What do you guys think?
