Justin Bieber Says He’s “Kind, Gentle, and Soft”
After appearing on “The Ellen Show” earlier this week, Justin Bieber took to Facebook to explain why he was so nervous during his interview.
In a dimly lit Facebook video, the Biebs appeared remorseful over his questionable behavior in the past year and revealed that he was nervous while speaking to Ellen DeGeneres because of his fear of being negatively judged by the audience.
"I didn't want to come off arrogant or conceited, or basically how I've been acting the past year and a half. And I'm not who I was pretending to be," he said. "I say pretending [because] often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover up of what we’re truly feeling inside.”
Bieber then went on to name “growing up” as the reason why he’ s acted so inappropriately over the years (ie: his arrests, racial slurs, public outbursts) .
"Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Just growing up in general is hard. I want people to know how much I care about people. I'm not that person to say 'I don't give a fuck.' I'm not that kid. I'm a person who genuinely cares.”
Well Justin, actions speak louder than words. Let’s hope you mean what you say and let’s see some progress in 2015!
