Justin Bieber says the media is bullying him: ‘People forget I’m a human being’

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber’s people know he’s in trouble with the general public. His manager, Scooter Braun, says he’s tired of the witch hunt. Braun has admitted to Hollywood Reporter that he can’t control Justin, so he basically spends every night waiting for a phone call with bad news. Braun is still managing to give Biebs a little push, so we’re getting Instagrammed photos of Justin visiting victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Phillipines yesterday. Bieber sang a few songs and handed out shirts and toys to children. Is all forgiven now?

Here’s the thing: Justin’s people are super worried about his image, and Biebs has a new movie, Believe, coming out on Christmas. They need to sell this baby, and it’s a bad sign that his concert ticket prices are plummeting in the wake of brothelgate and so many other controversies. So Justin went on Ryan Seacrest’s show this morning to talk about how he’s so misunderstood by the press, which he says is bullying him:

“I want to be a young mogul. I want people to respect me for not only my music but also for making all the right decisions, and sometimes you have to make some wrong ones first. Of course I make mistakes growing up as everyone does. I’m not perfect. I’m not a robot. People forget I’m a human being, so I gotta make mistakes and grow from it and get stronger. I’m becoming a man, but I’m 19 and still finding myself. And when I have the media attacking me every day it’s no [different] than bullying that happens in school, these people calling me names and saying things, and they don’t know what’s true or not.”

[From RyanSeacrest.com]

This little speech conveniently arrives in time to counteract claims that Bieber himself bullied a fan in a swimsuit by calling her “a beached whale” and telling her to “go on The Biggest Loser.” Some of you didn’t believe the story, but I can easily buy that he’d toss out rude remarks and never think about the girl again. This is a guy who abandoned his pet monkey and believes Anne Frank would have worshipped him. He’s a total nightmare who rips off his shirt and screams in night clubs and pees in restaurant buckets. Yet Bieber still believes he’s only “becoming a man.” Spare me, baby Biebs.

    His crash and burn is going to be especially crashy and burny, isn’t it?

    • Liv says:

      What I thought. Life will f*** him over, he just messed around too much with his karma!

    • Nanz01 says:

      Word. This made me laugh.

    • Ceebee says:

      Hahahahaha! And this twit has a movie coming out? Fabulous- we’re going to be able to measure the crashy burny in $$$ (or lack thereof). Merry Christmas!

    • Carolyn says:

      it’s already happening…empty concert seats are a sign that the end is coming…

      entitled wingy whiny ungrateful horrible arrogant so & so.

      he’s only making PR appearances because he’s been told to and he’s got something new to promote. there’s no sincerity or integrity about it.

      he’s in a movie? look forward to the rotten tomatoes rating of 0.

      no baby bieber being put in his car seat photo? 🙁

    • Arielle says:

      Too true.

  2. gogoGorilla says:

    Didn’t he just attack a fan by calling her a beached whale?


    I have zero sympathy for him.

    • Bluebear says:

      Come on, have some empathy.
      He’s not a girl,
      Not yet a woman.
      All he needs is time,
      A moment that is his,
      While he’s in between.

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      Awwwww, you’re being so harsh on little Justy wusty. Remember he has the mentality of a 9 year old and obviously missed is afternoon nap that day.

      Where are his parents and why aren’t they teaching him some manners and respect??

    • MonkSolo says:

      Also, it serves her right for having such bad taste in men. Justin Bieber is only half the problem. The people who make him famous are the other half.

  3. Aims says:

    To quote forrest gumps mama,”stupid is as stupid does.” if you act like a jackass then you’re going to get a reaction.Stop being a little prick and people might lighten up a little.

  4. Jessiebes says:

    Actions speak louder than words little boy.

  5. mimifarrow says:

    BeeBee is starting to look like John Mayer’s doppelgänger. Douchergänger?

  6. Cristina says:

    I love it how you always post photos that show how douchey he is :))

  7. Lucky Charm says:

    Then just quit acting like an idiot, you petulant child! There, problem solved.

    • Rachel says:

      Exactly. Writing about his immature, selfish escapades isn’t bullying. It’s reporting. If he’s tired of reading about it, the solution is quite simple. Stop giving them stuff to write about!

  8. JALorden says:

    I’m still worried about the monkey.

  9. Simmie says:

    Haha. HAHAHAHA. No sympathy for this brat who thinks he’s above everyone and treats others like crap. Start behaving like a worthwhile human being and then maybe you’ll get treated that way.

  10. LilyT says:

    Hey Justin you know who are also human beings? The young girl whose self-esteem you shattered by calling her a “whale”, the countless people in your “entourage” that you use to do your bidding, to protect you, baby you, and shield you from the repurcussions of your own abhorrent behavior.

    • doofus says:

      and who else?…

      oh, that guy/girl whose bucket you peed in, and all of those fans you left hanging when you showed up late to concerts…oh, and all those people you endangered in your neighborhood when you drove recklessly…

      • lunchcoma says:

        …and those people who live in the neighborhoods where you chose to paint graffiti…and the fans whose cameras your bodyguards destroyed…and the people left to care for your abandoned pets…

      • Bean says:

        …and those fans that you spit on from your hotel balcony.

      • rainbowsandshit says:

        …and the people who have to pay to replace tyres slashed by his bodyguard..

  11. Insomniac says:

    I’m so over people who demand respect that they haven’t done a thing to earn.

    And this post needs the picture of ickle Justin getting tossed into the car like a fussy little baby.

  12. Kas says:

    I’m so tired of the whole “bullying”. It has been completely b-starddized by a-holes like this. It’s a term that should be reserved for kids in school who are genuinely being harmed, not this a-hole. More and more you see this, the Bully crying, “bullying”.

    • bluhare says:

      Thank you. Now if you say something someone else doesn’t like, you’re a bully.

    • lucy2 says:

      Exactly – it’s not like he’s sitting at home quietly minding his own business and people are making stuff up about him. He’s behaving horribly and people are reporting on it. That’s on HIM, not the media.

    • Blossom says:

      You don’t have to be a kid in school to be bullied. Unfortunately it happens to adults too all the time.

      • lunchcoma says:

        I’d absolutely agree that adults can be bullied. However, I think that at a minimum, there needs to be some kind of communication directed at the person, whether it be an in person conversation or a DM on Twitter. Critiquing someone without directly addressing them doesn’t count – otherwise, every condemnation of bad behavior or negative review becomes bullying.

    • Leila In Wunderland says:

      Exactly. Writing about and criticizing the crappy way someone treats others is not bullying.

  13. Amy Tennant says:

    I always try to say nice things, but after yesterday in particular, I am so done with Justin. I hope Santa brings him some self-awareness.

  14. BooBooLaRue says:

    Geeeeeeeez I thought he was a “turd”.

  15. MisJes says:

    Just like how you forgot that the girl you publicly humiliated at the pool is also a human being, f-ker?

  16. Nerd Alert says:

    No denying the beached whale comment, I see.

  17. INeedANap says:

    Feel free to take the time and grow as a man. In the mean time, we are under no obligation to continue financing your career. If the public does not like you, they are not expected to pay you through your identity crisis. Put in the work and come back when you have something worth giving.

    Also — criticism is valid when you act like an overgrown pen1$ wrinkle. Freedom of speech — take it, beeyotch.

  18. GrahamFan says:

    This brat needs to just stop, maybe go to school and disappear for a while. Perhaps he’ll learn a thing or two, like money can’t buy you class, and that you reap what you sow.

    Total jackass!

  19. K-rock says:

    People haven’t “forgotten” you are a human being, because you never acted like one in the first place you obnoxious brat. Can’t wait for the day he is off the map!

  20. HB says:

    What a mean bunch of people.

  21. dorothy says:

    Are you kidding me? The douchebag called someone fat the other day. A human being has manners, is polite and not a narcissistic, entitled little a-hole that runs around spray painting public property, urinating in mop buckets and making people caring him like a baby.

    What a putz this guy is.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      Too right, dorothy. Bieber is such a phony that he might even believe his own press. Unfortunately, little sh*ts never seem to smell their own stink.

      What we got here is a failure to communicate! Justin, boy, I say, I say, you need to comprehend your bad behavior, you oughta be ashamed, and you need ta to get yourself right!

  22. TxGal says:

    Little boy if you want respect than show some to others. Idiot Douche Bag!!

  23. K-rock says:

    Gotta love how he paints himself as a victim, all while spitting it peoples faces, pissing in restaurant mop buckets and calling young girls “beached whales”. Ugh he infuriates me!

  24. Katy-did says:


  25. only1shmoo says:

    Beiber’s message is clear and should be noted by all of us for future reference: just because he’s a pompous, over-indulged, Joffrey Baratheon-esque mean little sh*t does NOT GIVE US THE RIGHT TO CALL HIM OUT ON IT! The nerve of these critics, eh?

  26. BeckyR says:

    Take off the poopy diaper.

  27. Hautie says:

    I see another Leif Garret in our mist.

    Young. Pretty. All the teenage girls loved him. He believed it would last forever. Was not a nice person through the good years. Blew through his money. Was terrible to his high profile girlfriends. And still at fifty wondering where it has all gone. Still working on that come back.

    I see this same future for young Bieber.

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      Holy cow! I haven’t heard about Leif Garret in YEARS. His fame lasted all of 5 minutes. I guess some patterns are just going to repeat no matter how many years fall between douches.

  28. Moiselle says:

    No grown person should be calling himself “Scooter”. Unless he is a Muppet.

  29. jane16 says:

    Bieber is the one who forgets he is a human being. He thinks he’s some kind of demi god or something, and that regular laws and manners and human decency are beneath him. I know some of his neighbors in Calabasas who say he is a nightmare and on the same plane as the horrible Kartrashians. Fuck him. He isn’t getting any sympathy from me. btw, speaking of Kartrashians, lets boyKot all the posts about them. Pretty please! People did that with the Heidi & whatever his name was dude, and they practically disappeared from our consciousness. The K’s show ratings are down. This is the perfect time.

  30. Daaahling says:

    Justin must have forgotten that the pool side girl and those women in the brothel were human beings as well. What does he have to say for that?

    • Leila In Wunderland says:

      I heard about what he said to the girl at the pool. I didn’t hear about him treating the women in the brothel badly.

  31. Leek says:

    Hey douche bag, yeah you, Bieber, I made plenty of mistakes, half of my twenties is a total black out, but in the midst of making those mistakes I still treated people with respect and with kindness. Oh, and how dare you visit the Philipines, those poor people have been through enough and now they’re going to need another round of antibiotics after you coming into contact with those poor little kids. You, sir, are a monster and you you deserve nothing but the effects of your chaos which you create.

  32. ontheraw says:

    Fu**er! Learn to respect yourself and act like a decent human being, you disgraceful POS, not only for publicity reasons you punk, it needs to show you feel it inside in your real life. Enough already, you turd!

  33. mia girl says:

    “Believe”, huh? I guess it might actually be an apt title for your movie because Justin:
    I believe you are an entitled boy with no concept self-reflection.
    I believe all these stories about you being a mega douche
    I believe that you are a complete manifestation of id right now
    I believe your music is pretty lame

    Lohan 2.0: the Dude Version.

  35. good buddy says:

    Who’s the beached whale now? Who should be on the biggest loser now? Jerk.

  36. Jackson says:

    Yaay! No Pirates hat picture – thank you! 🙂

  37. crab says:

    Oh boo hoo!! STFU!! Maybe next time you call a young woman a beached whale you’ll think about why everyone is calling you names!! God I hate this kid!! F-ing douche bag!!

  38. bettyrose says:

    You know, narcissism is a normal stage of childhood development, but life teaches us humility and empathy. Except for the Biebs and Mileys of the world. Their handlers do them such a disservice by coddling them.

  39. Maggie says:

    He’s 19! Give the guy a break. What guy that age doesn’t do assholey things? He’s got to go through his adolescence in the public eye. Ppl on here are so mean. The comments are sickening!

    • MrsB says:

      No. Age is never an excuse for cruelty. I’ve known plenty of 19 year olds boys and none of them acted this way. Sure, most everybody is going to do stupid things as they grow into adulthood. Maybe occasionally drink too much and act like an a-hole. But this kid has shown a clear pattern of entitlement and he treats people horribly. He has shown no empathy for anybody else, why should we show him any?

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      Maggie, when little kids pull the wings off flies or when a 19 yo boy pees in someone’s work bucket that the janitor has to use the next morning, bullies a girl about her weight, and SPITS on people, he’s not a boy who’s going to ‘outgrow’ being an asshole. Justin is the mean guy, not us who are horrified by his cruelty and selfishness.

      Hon, if you think this is normal because the 19 yo boys you know are going through this same asshole phase, you need to dump your friends and hang out with the good guys! It’s not too late to improve your taste in men.

    • Janet says:

      19 is plenty old enough to know that you don’t treat people like sh*t.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      He isn’t an adolescent, he is a legal adult. He has the emotional maturity of a 10 year old, so I can see why you would be confused.

      So he is old enough to use the services of the sex trade, but he isn’t old enough to be held accountable for his actions?

      • Janet says:

        Ten? That’s giving him the benefit of too many years. My four-year-old grandson acts more mature than that twerp.

    • Leila In Wunderland says:

      To me being in your late teens/early 20’s is a reasonable excuse for experimentation, being naïve about certain issues, or even being a little dramatic. It’s not an excuse to be nasty to people.

    • bettyrose says:

      Okay, play along with me folks, you’re a 19 year old university student with a history of jackass behavior. For whatever reason, one night you think it would be funny to go into the service closet in your dormitory and pee in the mop bucket. Then, you head to the dining hall to verbally harass girls you consider “fat.” Now, how does the university handle you?
      A) They understand that you’re “only 19” and don’t know any better.
      B) They kick you out of the dorms, which basically means withdrawing from school because it’s the middle of the term and no apartments are available. You go crawling back to your parents, who are pissed as hell because you wasted their tuition money and now they’re refusing to pay for your college. So you have to either get a job and pay rent to your parents or figure out some other way to pay for college, like joining the military and going to Afganistan.

      Yeah, 19 year olds aren’t children.

    • Evi says:

      Jeez it makes me wonder. How sad it is to be 19 and so inadequate that he feels the need to visit strip clubs and be a vandal, as he was in Australia recently.
      If that is what a male role model is to young girls, then I feel pity for the girls who look up to Bieber, but they’ll basically be making bad relationship choices and have a rude wake up call.
      He is an ass. There are plenty of 19 year old men out there who aren’t douches.
      One of the reasons of him acting out is because people around him, including his mother most likely, have that mentality: ‘He’s only 19…Boys will be boys.’
      Well sorry, but we all know that such attitudes always lead to disaster, not that I personally give a crap about whatever happens to Bieber, but I’m sure as hell sick and tired of having to see his image everywhere, held up as some type of example each time he does something stupid.

      Go back to tumblr or fanfiction.


  40. madchen says:

    If he doesn’t pull up his socks, he’s going to Aaron Carter himself out of existence.

  41. mj says:

    Apparently, Justin, they are also forgetting you’re a human douche, because you still have fans.

  42. Lara Morgana says:

    The boy is just icky. Looking at him makes my skin crawl (I’m being completely serious). If he ever got within 10 feet of me I would vomit.

  43. ontheraw says:

    I’m gonna add that ‘people don’t forget you’re a human being’, it’s just that people acknowledge, as a logical cause of your flaunting actions, that YOU ARE A TOOL AND A DOUCHE! Sesssh, what a prick and, on top of that, what a loser-whiner. Utter disgust!

  44. meh says:

    Poor thing. Sounds like someone needs his diaper changed.

  45. lucy2 says:

    Like others have said, he needs to act like a human being, and treat others nicely, to be treated as one himself.
    I think his behavior has gone beyond “mistakes” that people make growing up. He’s mean. He’s cruel. He’s incredibly disrespectful not only to people around him, but to the fans that gave him the lifestyle he has.

  46. Janet says:

    Next thing you know he’s going to break out into several choruses of “Nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I’m gonna eat some worms…”

  47. anon says:

    So this is his version of “boys will be boys”? When will people stop shilling that shit and hold men and women to the same level of accountability?

  48. moo says:

    Why doesn’t he act like a human being? Punk ass… cannot WAIT for his inevitable fall.

  49. Tiffany :) says:

    Actually, he is the one treating people less than human!
    Spitting on people from balconies, driving 100+ mph and endangering others on the road, supporting the sex trafficing of young women, peeing in buckets for others to clean up, showing up at shows for children 3+ hours late…

  50. portlandjan says:

    Yeah, he’s an entitled little douchenozzle all right. And when is he going to stop playing the youth card? I’m actually grateful that I won’t be alive when he’s 70, still bleating “But I’m YOUNG!”.

  51. Ming says:

    Celebs using, “the media is bullying me” need to take their millions and stfu.
    It comes with the territory.

    Dear Justin,
    When you make fun of a girl and say horribly mean things about her weight in front of your “friends” i.e. paid for body guards who are only with you for the money, cool trips to vacation destinations, free drugs, YOU are the bully..and deserve every bit of karma you get. Enjoy being a douche with those paid for supplement “abs”.

    • Leila In Wunderland says:

      “Celebs using, “the media is bullying me” need to take their millions and stfu.
      It comes with the territory.”

      I agree in situations like what Justin is doing. But some celebrities do face real bullying, and I don’t think their fame means that they should just silently accept whatever bigotry or hate speech anyone throws at them.

      • bettyrose says:

        But unlike most bullied people, they have the means to take their wealth and go somewhere they won’t be bullied. Sandra Bullock did it and no one else will ever get a pass from me.

    • Moore says:

      Sometimes people use they are famous they asked for it as an excuse not take responsibility for their bullying behavior. The entitled behavior involved in that bothers me. People can just say that ‘well they are in the public eye it is their own fault’ and never have to think of their own moral obligations to behave like a decent human being.
      I do think that JB gets a lot of bullying. But he gets even more reasonable and warranted outrage at his bad behavior.

      • Leila In Wunderland says:

        I agree. The fact that someone is famous isn’t a free pass for anyone to be as heinous and bigoted as they please, because when people say certain things, it’s not just about the person they’re talking about. Even if by some small chance a celebrity never sees a word of any of it, it’s still out there leaving it’s taint on society.

  52. Singtress says:

    He doesn’t have the emotional maturity of a child.
    My six year old would never say or do such things.
    He doesn’t have any emotional maturity. End.

  53. DailyNightly says:

    For starters–PULL YOUR DAMN PANTS UP!!

    • Nicolette says:

      +1. He might also want to try stopping his stupid antics that scream “Look at me! Look at me!” Agree with Ming’s comment above that celebs need to take their millions and STFU. The media, good or bad, goes with the territory. If they don’t like it then they should drop out of the limelight.

  54. RJ says:

    I’d pay money to see him & the Cracken hook up, especially now that she’s a cougary these days–talk about two people who deserve each other!

  55. emma says:

    Growing up and maturing or acting like an entitled douche nugget are very different things. We know J-douche is human, and acts the way he does, that’s what is so troubling/annoying/insufferable. Brilliant idea: Why don’t this guy, Chris Beatdownbrown, Kanwheezy, and every other terrible celebrity playing the victim just stop putting forth statements to the media (making them sound more intolerable) and just act decent. Actions speak louder than words, bro.

  56. Whoopp says:

    His major problem is he’s uneducated.

  57. Evi says:

    The only people who ‘respect’ him are his stupid fangirls.
    Fame has gone to his head and overruled any type of logic. But is this really a surprise? We are looking at an industry that encourages these so called ‘prodigies’ [on US talk shows like Ellen, he is considered a prodigy] to leave school early. What happens is that they become surrounded by yes people, don’t socialise with anyone their age and lose all connection with regular society, and as such, regular etiquette.
    He hasn’t discovered a cure for cancer. He only releases manufactured music that his record company oversees. It’s no biggie and artists who have achieved greater don’t behave as brats.

    If this brat didn’t have a pack of bodyguards around him, he’d have been beaten to a pulp by now.

  58. Dommy Dearest says:

    Justin’s alter ego Miley is giving the same excuses and no one is buying.
    You may be human you little idiot but you should remember free will and thought process. He should know what’s acceptable and isn’t but just like all the other celebutards he thinks he is untouchable. I can’t wait until he’s sent back to his crib (literal not the hip lingo of house) with a bottle and a diaper.

    • Leila In Wunderland says:

      The difference being that Justin’s antics actually hurt people, while most of Miley’s antics just trample all over traditional values.

  59. agent strawberry fields says:

    Run along, you impossible child

  60. oilburner says:

    I can’t stand this asshole. I totally can’t wait to see him fall & fall hard . He’s gone from being a lil boy that looked like a lesbian to a complete douche bad asshole with shitty tattoos and a wigger attitude. The only other thing I’m looking forward to more than his demise is his homo dads play girl spread.

  61. MsAubra says:

    Yous a douche tho…shut up!

  62. GirlyGirl says:

    Here’s a tip Justin, start acting like an adult human and people will treat you like one.
