Justin Bieber responded to Us Weekly about rumors that he’s on the verge of a mental breakdown: ‘The biggest misconception about me is that I’m a bad person. 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.’
Onbeing photographed heading into his London hotel shirtless: ‘I still had part of my tour wardrobe on and was rushing into my hotel.’ He was also hospitalized in London March 7 after mysteriously fainting on stage, then walked the streets wearing a gas mask the same week.
‘I passed out from the flu. The worst thing to me is disappointing my fans — we only had five songs left, so they gave me oxygen, and I decided to finish the show and then go to the hospital. The show must go on. Gas mask was joke with my friends.
I wanted to hide my face from all the cameras. They got it as a joke. My friends and I like messing around.. I’m young and I make mistakes. That’s part of growing up. I mess up sometimes. It’s part of growing up.
I know who I am and I’m not gonna let negativity towards me bring me down. I’m a positive person and I plan on staying that way. This business can break you down, but I have a strong team around me, and my family and all the fans. The love overcomes the negativity. I’m not perfect but I’m growing and trying to be better everyday. That’s part of life.
I’m young and I want to have fun. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. I’m thinking about my next album, next tour. Or maybe I’ll take a break. I’m figuring it out. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do at 19?’
