Teen singer Justin Bieber has opened up to Ryan Seacrest and is admitting to making some mistakes while growing up. He also talked of the public scrutiny that he has been surrounded with while away on tour.
He revealed, “A lot of stuff’s been confused because I’ve been out of the public eye. You know, I’ve been on tour, so no one really knows what I’m doing out here.”
He went on to say, “Of course I make mistakes growing up – as everybody does. And I’m not perfect, I’m not a robot. People forget I’m a human being, so I’ve got to make mistakes and grow from it and get stronger…and that’s what I want to do. I want to become a young mogul. I want people to respect me, for not only making music, but for making the right decisions. And sometimes you have to make some wrong ones first.”
With regard to his new documentary Believe, he said, “I think Never Say Never showed hope and I think Believe is how you get back up when you fall down, and really that story of what’s going on behind the scenes.”
He added, “People don’t get to see me living as a 19-year-old boy. I’m becoming a man, but I’m still 19. I’m still finding myself. And when I have the media attacking me everyday…it’s no less bullying than what happens in school, with these people calling me names and saying things when they don’t know what’s true or not.”
