Bieber: I've grown a thick skin

Justin Bieber has made a surprise appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres chat show to discuss his public apology video.

Justin Bieber has “got to be strong” to take people’s comments.

The Baby singer uploaded a public apology video last week, in which he confessed he was afraid of what people thought of him after a year of unruly behaviour and brushes with the law. The post came after an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and a week on, Justin made a surprise return to the programme to elaborate on how he’s feeling.

“People often forget that, even with their comments and stuff, they think it doesn’t get to me. But it gets to me,” he told the host. “You know, things that people say bother me and I gotta be strong enough to just keep it pushing.”

Justin’s appearance is set to air on Thursday and hopefully the star had managed to calm the nerves he felt during his previous visit to the show. The 20-year-old seems to be going all out to convince people he has changed his egg-throwing ways of last year.

“Yeah, 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,” he continued. "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.”

Justin was first signed to a recording contract when he was 13 years old. He went on to have huge success in a very short space of time, and in his video he reflected on how difficult that was at times.

“Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Just growing up in general is hard,” he said. “I just felt awkward up there. I felt like people were judging me.”
