The truth is, Justin Bieber has been put through a lot in the recent years e.g. his run-in with the cops and the law, his ongoing battle with the paparazzi, his on-and-off-and-on-and-off-again relationship with Selena Gomez (we presume it’s really off now since she’s reported to be dating DJ/producer Zedd), and generally his behaviour like a total wreck. In his defense, it must be hard having to grow up and have your growing pains as well as mistakes constantly displayed under the limelight for all to see.
The Biebs himself echoes this statement in his most recent appearance on popular US talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”:
In conjunction with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres’ birthday, Justin Bieber turned up with flowers and some gifts (read: Calvin Klein underwear) in hand to surprise her. He pointed out during his brief interview on the show that it marked his first official TV appearance in a long time and he later on admitted that he was feeling nervous about how he would be perceived.
In fact, he made it pretty known because right after the show, he tweeted the following:
He also later took the liberty to post up a short video on his Facebook page, a recording of perhaps his most emotional message to his fans to date.
In the video, he admitted that he “didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited” and that he wasn’t who he was pretending to be. He also said, “Often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover up of what we’re truly feeling inside. And there was 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.”

So, what do you guys think? Should he be forgiven for just being a boy and making mistakes while growing up like any other normal teenager or adolescent? Because we sure think so!
