Justin I was floored by your apology that you posted to your Facebook page, Jan. 29 and I’m just praying that you follow through. You are only one month from being 21 and it’s time to become a man!
Justin Bieber, 20, I am so thrilled that you want to be taken more seriously! You admitted that you were really nervous when you appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jan. 29, and your FaceBook explanation was really moving. I just really hope that you mean what you are saying and that you “care about people.” I say this because just a few hours after your appearance, you posted a photo of your underwear around your ankles, come on Justin!
Justin Bieber: I Loved Your Apology But I Just Hope You’re Being Sincere
I know you have your Comedy Central roast right around the corner but your heartfelt video felt so sincere. I really hope that you meant that you want to go back to be a “loving and gentle and soft” guy, again. But it almost seems like you’ve already forgotten what you said. Let me refresh your memory on what you said just a few hours ago:
“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.”
I spoke to a psychologist, Dr. Gilda Carle, who tells me that she actually believes you and that she thinks it’s great you admitting your shortcomings.
“As Bieber is about to turn 21, it’s nice to see that he’s willing to admit he’s been ‘pretending’ and ‘covering up’ his inner-feelings,” she said. ” Actually, the true person behind the mask is probably very insecure. But it’s a sign of growing up to admit this insecurity, and to want to turn over a new leaf by being real. Good for him!”
You are on the right track but doing things like posting a pic of your Calvin Klein underwear around your ankles in order to show off your new rug wasn’t necessary. I think that it cheapens what you spent time saying to your Beliebers. Justin, I have total faith that you can be the guy that everyone knows is inside, just try and follow through. I think it will help the success of your next album and maybe even win back, Selena Gomez.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Justin is serious about being a good guy?
