Justin Bieber is sounding off again – but not on Instagram this time. For the Beliebers, it’s probably their worst fear coming true because their idol is taking a break from his singing career – or at least he’s planning to.
Following the horrible past few weeks he has had, the 19-year-old pop sensation is now firing back at haters in an interview with Us Weekly:
The biggest misconception about me is that I’m a bad person. I get upset about that. I have a big heart. I want to be a good role model, but some people want me to fail. I’m young and I make mistakes. That’s part of growing up. I mess up sometimes.
I know who I am and I’m not gonna let negativity towards me bring me down. I’m a positive person and I plan on staying that way. This business can break you down, but I have a strong team around me, and my family and all the fans. The love overcomes the negativity. I’m not perfect but I’m growing and trying to be better every day. That’s part of life.
I’m thinking about my next album, next tour. Or maybe I’ll take a break. I’m figuring it out. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do at 19? I’m young and I want to have fun. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.
Let’s all remember that Justin grew up in the limelight and under the scrutiny of the world. Even his “worst birthday” ever was heavily criticized by the media. And who can really blame him for lashing out at overly aggressive paparazzi? None of this must’ve been easy for the star who in reality, is still a boy.
So maybe he is right – maybe he does need a break before he crashes and burns.
