Justin Bieber opens up to Ellen DeGeneres about his online apology

2015-02-06 21:00

Los Angeles - Justin Bieber is "passionate" about being a "better" person.

The Believe hitmaker recently made a video for fans in which he apologised for his recent conduct - which has included wild partying, driving offences and egging a neighbour's house - and he wants people to realise he is only "human" and gets upset by criticism.

The 20-year-old singer has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, just over a week after his "nervous" appearance prompted him to make the video and he admits he was feeling anxious about people's attitude towards him.

He explained to Ellen: "It was the first time I was on television for a long time, and I just was worried about what people were thinking about me. Like I said last time, I did a lot of things over the past few years that I'm not proud of.

"I was just nervous to be in front of people again and talk in front of them. Remember?"

Asked why he went on to make the video, he added: "I thought I just looked really extra nervous and I kinda just wanted to explain myself."

He said: "People often forget that, even with their comments and stuff, they think it doesn't get to me. But it gets to me. Things that people say bother me and I gotta be strong enough to just keep it pushing. That's why I just wanted to make a video to just let people know that I'm human.

"I love people. I love love. I'm passionate about things and I'm passionate about being better and growing, so I think that this is going to be an awesome chapter in my life and I'm so glad that I have you guys supporting me."
