Justin diagnosed himself with Attention Deficit Disorder, confessing that he struggles to focus on anything for more than five minutes at a time.

Justin Bieber thinks there’s something different about him. Sure, he’s an amazing singer, talented dancer and he’s super adorable — but Biebs is convinced he’s one of two million teenagers in America who suffer from ADD.

The 16-year-old, who has never been diagnosed with the condition, describes it as a “small case,” but admits the school tutor who accompanies him on tour has to structure classes specifically to cater to the condition, which causes him to lose focus and become easily distracted.

Justin tells British newspaper The Guardian, “I have a small case of ADD. It’s self-claimed.”

“If I don’t understand something, and I’m bored, I don’t pay attention, so my teacher has to really make it fun for me,” he says. “Every hour he has to give me a five- to 10-minute break. But after the break, I’ll be back into it. I’ll be good.”
