In a darkly lit room, Bieber recorded a 90-second video, where he divulged his thoughts on how nervous he was to appear on the daytime talk show because it's been a minute since his last public gig, but also confessed how scared he felt about what people were going to think of him. Nerves aside, JB also made some pretty self-aware claims in the video, apologizing for all the BS that's happened and, more importantly, owning up to all the arrogance and conceited ish he's spewed for the past year and a half.
I’m not who I was pretending to be. When I say pretending, often you pretend to be something we’re not as a cover up of what we’re truly feeling inside. And there were a lot of feelings going on in there."
Bieber told fans that he really wants people to know how much he actually cares about folks, explaining that he's not the IDGAF kind of kid. "And although what’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," he said. "And although people can call me a ‘softy,’ that’s how my mom raised me.”
Bottom line? Forgive me. I'll do better.

He also made a surprise appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show and attempts to clear the air there as well.
“I think it’s just cool to be able to laugh at yourself,” he told Ellen. “I’ve done some things that might not have been the greatest. I just want to be able to laugh about it and own up to some of the things.”
Here's the deal, kiddo. You've done your share of apologizing, but nothing is more moving than actually see an apologize come to life. Take a day or strategically planned Comedy Central roast to laugh off all the drag racing, neighbor terrorizing, DUI dramz of the past and let us see how much you've changed instead of talking the talk. Good luck! We'll be with you every step of the way.
