FLASH!: Justin Bieber is young and makes mistakes
We're all very concerned with Justin Bieber's mental state, of course. Who doesn't care about how a 19-year-old millionaire pop star feels? To that end, Us Weekly provides us with an interview to tell us why he's been acting like such a jerk lately. Have we mentioned he's 19?
"The biggest misconception about me is that I'm a bad person," he tells the magazine's entertainment director Ian Drew. "I get upset about that. I have a big heart. I want to be a good role model, but some people want me to fail."
Yes, they want you to fail by making you wear a ridiculous sag, or get photographed wearing a gas mask through the streets of London (which he called "a joke with my friends" because he wanted to hide his face from cameras).
"I'm young and I make mistakes. That's part of growing up. I mess up sometimes. It's part of growing up," he says, adding, "I'm young and I want to have fun. I don't think there is anything wrong with that."
Okay, fine, but we can do without you threatening to kill paparazzi or your neighbors. Then he goes on to threaten us with planning his next move.
"I'm thinking about my next album, next tour. Or maybe I'll take a break," he notes. "I'm figuring it out. Isn't that what you're supposed to do at 19?" Sure, but usually you're making $1.50 an hour at a fast food joint after high school when you're doing it.
