Canada’s pop star Justin Bieber shared a new video after he was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In this clip, the 20-year-old Beebs says he made the video because he wants to “express how he feels.”
In the video, JBiebs confesses that he was nervous about his recent public appearance on Ellen’s show because he was “afraid of what people are thinking” about him right now. He went on to indicate that he didn’t want to appear “arrogant or conceited,” or basically the way he’s “been acting for the past year, year-and-a-half.”
Bieber shared the video with his 59.8 million Twitter followers. The tweet received over 51,000 retweets and over 55,000 favorites.
Justin discussed in his video confession that “being young and growing up in this business is hard, growing up in general is hard.” He says he “felt awkward up there,” and that he felt like people were judging him.
He writes off his past mistakes in one line, in which he says, “[W]hat’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 might call JB a “softy,” he indicates that’s just how his momma raised him.
The 20-year-old Canadian was born Justin Drew Bieber in London, Ontario, Canada. He was born on March 1, 1994 to parents Jeremy Jack Bieber and Patricia Mallette. His music career has been active since 2008, and he’s listed on Wikipedia as a vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and drummer.
In November of 2009, Bieber’s debut EP, My World, was released. The album was certified platinum in the United States.
After the young pop star appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the show’s special birthday edition, he sent a tweet in which he tagged @TheEllenShow and told DeGeneres happy birthday while apologizing for being “so nervous.”
Ellen took to Twitter, where she responded to the Biebs’ tweet by saying he was “perfect” and thanked him for “surprising” her by making an appearance on her birthday.
After JB showed up on her show, Ellen indicated that she was now a “Belieber.” The tweet received over 36,000 retweets and more than 36,000 favorites.

“I’m not who I was pretending to be.”
