Justin Bieber was charged with a misdemeanor involving his egg-throwing incident in 2014. He tossed eggs at his neighbor in Calabasas, California – and received probation as a result. Since, he has acted up a bit – but has seemingly turned over a new leaf as of recent. Is Justin Bieber changing himself for the better in order to win back his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez?
Justin Bieber went to a probation meeting on Thursday, February 5, 2015 and received glowing reviews as to his progress. Last year, he was sentenced to two years probation and apparently after meeting with an officer at the courthouse, things went off without a hitch.
During his sentencing, he was also forced to pay $80,000 in damages for the property he egged, in addition to attending twelve anger management classes and doing six days of community service as punishment. He recently offered up his apology for his antics and said that he’d been pretending to be someone else.
He made an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show recently and was said to be nervous. During his apology video, he said, “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 – or basically how I’ve been acting the past year or year and a half. I’m not who I was pretending to be. And where I say pretending – often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover-up of what we’re truly feeling inside.”
He went on to say, “Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Growing up in general is hard. I really wanted people to know how much I care. How much I care about people. And how I’m not that person to say that ‘I don’t give a f**k.’ I’m a person that 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.”
