Justin Bieber says he is still a boy … a sharp contrast to what he has been doing all year to show people how grown up he had become.
Also, he believes that the media is being too hard on him, so hard that the criticism he always gets for his behavior – which include peeing inside restaurant buckets and cursing former US presidents – feel like school bullying.
Bieber said all these after he called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show from Australia and was asked if his upcoming Believe documentary will show the world – especially the ‘bullies’ (media) – who the real Justin Bieber is.
‘I’m becoming a man, but I’m still 19, I’m still finding myself,’ he told Seacrest. ‘When I have the media attacking me everyday … It’s no less bullying than what happens in schools. These people calling me names, and saying things, they don’t know what’s true or not.’
He continued, ‘Of course, I make mistakes growing up, as everybody does, and I’m not perfect, I’m not a robot. People forget I’m a human being. I’ve got to make mistakes, and grow from it, and get stronger, and that’s what I plan to do.’
And as for his aspirations, ‘I want to become a young mogul, I want people to respect me for not only music, but also for making the right decisions.’
