Justin Bieber Apology Video: Singer Says Sorry For Being ‘Arrogant’ & ‘Conceited’
Here is the full transcript from Justin’s video:
“So, I just wanted to make a video because I wanted to express how I feel right now. Uh, so today, I was on Ellen and it was a lot of fun. She’s amazing. It was her birthday. Happy Birthday, Ellen! But I was really nervous because I’m just, I was afraid of what people are thinking about me right now. It’s been a minute since I’ve done a public appearance and I didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited or basically how I’ve been acting the past year, year and a half. And I was, I’m not who I was pretending to be. Why I say pretending is often, we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover up of what we’re truly feeling inside. And there were a lot of feelings going on in there. Um, just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Growing up in general is hard, but um, yeah, I just felt awkward up there. I felt people were judging me and I really want people to know how much I care, how much I care about people, and how I’m not that person to say ‘I don’t give a f***,’ you know? I’m not that kid. I’m a person who 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 and although people can call me a ‘softy,’ that’s how my mom raised me.”
We have to admit: Justin seems super sincere in this video. It even sounds like he’s crying a bit. And thanks to his millions of fans, he’s already trending on Twitter with #WeDontJudgeYouJustin and #DearJustin.
