When you’re a celebrity, there will be a lot of good things said about you in the press, and there will also be a lot of bad things as well.
Pop star Justin Bieber know’s exactly that, since he’s been receiving a lot of negative press these days, causing actress Jada Pinket Smith to come to his defense.
Well the singer is tired of of it and decided to pen an open letter to his critics expressing himself.
Take a look at what he had to say below:
Everyone in my team has been telling me, “keep the press happy” but I’m tired of all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I’m going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me.
My family is beyond proud, and nothing’s been said by them, my grandparents wouldnt know how to reach to press even of they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. if Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol I’m 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I’ve seen the whole world.
19 and I’ve accomplished more than I could’ve ever dreamed of, i’m 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning. I know my talent level and i know i got my head on straight.
i know who i am and i know who i’m not My messege is to to believe. My albums could be about anything but my messages have been to never say never and believe, not to believe in me but to believe in yourself ..
I honestly don’t care if you don’t believe in me because I believe in me, my friends believe, my family believe, my fans believe, and look where that’s gotten me so far.. I’m writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart.
Letting u know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger. I’m a good person with a big heart. And don’t think I deserve all this negative press I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here… All this isn’t easy.
I get angry sometimes. I’m human. I’m gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u.
While I’m not the biggest fan of the singer (though I will admit that Believe is an amazing pop album and one of my favorites of 2012), I don’t necessarily dislike him either — certainly not as much as some people do.
Growing up in the spotlight is very hard and people criticize these celebrities forgetting that not only they are kids and teenagers, but human as well.
Giving a little constructive criticism is much different than judging them and making them feel bad about themselves all together. Thoughts?
