Justin Bieber on His Public Perception: 'It's a Tough Line to Walk'

Justin Bieber shows off his blond hair on the cover of Hero magazine’s Issue 13, out on newsstands on May 18 in the US!

Here’s what the 21-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On differences between his upcoming album and last album: “The biggest difference is that I’m older, I was 17 when I recorded most of my last album and I’m 21 now. I’ve been through a lot in a public way which gives me a much different perspective on things. I am working with producers like Kanye [West] and Rick Rubin who have influenced me and the music I listen to in a big way. The creative process this time around is more personal, when was younger I would take other people’s experiences, now I have my own to draw from and it makes all the difference because it’s a release. It’s amazing because I’m able to really work out anything I am feeling in my music. I’m nervous whenever I put out new work because it’s such a personal journey, but I try to remember music is meant to be enjoyed – so I try to roll with it.”

On his public perception: “It’s definitely hard having so many people judge you from a distance. Sometimes you just want to explain yourself, but then that’s giving into gossip and it makes things worse. It’s a tough line to walk.”

On using the media to apologize to his fans: “I hope people felt the sincerity in my apologies. There are a lot of things that have happened in the last couple years that I’m not very proud of and I feel a responsibility to my fans and to the public who believe in me to make it right. I hope everyone believed it – because it was honest.”

    Well. common sense should have prevailed, but obviously, he has none. It can’t be taught. You either have it or you don’t. Also, it’s pretty obvious that his parents never taught him that you don’t embarrass the family or the family name. I don’t think he will change, and that will lead him to an early jail term or he’ll be killed during one of his ridiculous antics. Hey, Mom, are you proud of your son now?
