[There was a video here]
Last night, after making a perfectly adequate appearance on Ellen, Justin Bieber posted a video on some impenetrable new app apologizing to fans for being "conceited" and "arrogant" for the last 12 to 18 months of his life. "I just want to be kind, and loving, and gentle, and soft," he says. Justin Bieber, please calm down.
Speaking from some kind of dungeon for bad boys if the lighting is any indication, he explains:
I was really nervous [on the Ellen show]. And I think I was nervous because I'm afraid of what people are thinking about me right now. It's been a minute since I've been in a public appearance, and I didn't want to come off arrogant or conceited, or basically how I've been acting the last year, year and a half.
And I was, I'm not who I was pretending to be. Why I say "pretending" is because we often pretend to be something we're not as a coverup of what we're truly feeling inside. There was a lot of feelings going on in there.
Okay, yes, this is about Selena.
Being young and growing up in this business is hard. Growing up in general is hard. But yeah, I felt awkward up there, I felt like people were judging me. And I really want people to know I care. I care about people.
People, person, Selena Gomez—no you don't!
I'm not that person that I don't give a fuck, I'm not that kid. I'm a person who genuinely, genuinely cares. Although whats 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. Although people can call me a softie, that's how my mom raised me.
Be kind, be loving, be gentle, be soft, calm down.
