Driving under influence, throwing eggs at the house of his neighbors, assaulting a paparazzi or vandalizing, in 2014 Justin Bieber has accumulated a lot of missteps! But the days of the pretentious and arrogant bad boy, seem long gone! The Canadian singer wants to start the new year off right, and is determined to begin a new chapter of his life.
It was after an interview on the famous TV set of an American talk-show, where the singer said to be quite nervous, that Justin held to apologize to his fans about his behavior in recent years. “[…] I didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited or basically how I’ve been acting the past year and a half”, he admits in a video posted on his Facebook account. “I’m not who I was pretending to be. Why I say I was ‘pretending’ is often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover up of what we’re truly feeling inside. And there were a lot of feelings going on in there. Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Just growing up in general is hard,” he said, obviously sincere.
Worrying constantly about what people think of him, and badly accepting public criticism, Justin also admits to always feel judged. This does not prevent him from paying attention to people around him: “I really want people to know how much I care, how much I care about people, and how I’m not that person to say, ‘I don’t give af*ck,’ you know? I’m not that kid.”
“I just want to make the best impression on people and be kind and loving and gentle and soft. And although people can call me a “softy,” that’s how my mom raised me,” concluded Selena Gomez‘s ex.
In any case, these Justin statements seem to be really honest. Now, he only has to prove himself!
Do you think he will be a changed man this year?
