Justin Bieber Apologizes for Being… Justin Bieber?
Is Justin Bieber turning over a new leaf?
Hours after he made a surprise appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres” show, he posted a mea culpa video on Facebook (watch it here), telling everyone he's not that “arrogant or conceited” guy they think he is. It was all an act!
He explained in the clip, “I just 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, it was her birthday, but I was really nervous. I think I was nervous because I was afraid of what people are thinking about about me right now.”
He continued, “It's been a minute since I've been in a public appearance, and I didn't want to come off arrogant or conceited or basically how I've been acting the past year and a half.” “I'm not who I was pretending to be,” the Biebs added. “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.”
“I just felt awkward up there. I felt like people were judging me, and 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 a f**k,' you know? I'm not that kid. I'm a person who genuinely cares. And although what's happened in the past has happened, 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.”
