Justin Bieber says being famous is destroying him.
The 21-year-old singer revealed that he is struggling with being fame in a new cover story with Billboard
magazine, admitting that his life is not what it actually appears to be.
"It might seem awesome from the outside," he told reporters, "but I'm struggling."
Bieber admitted "Certain things broke my trust with people...I felt like people were judging me all the time."
"I came out alive. I came out swinging. But I was close to letting [fame> completely destroy me," the singer revealed.
He also touched on the nude photos of himself and his father's comments about them. Saying that he feels like the photos were an invasion of his privacy. "I felt super violated." And his dad was trying to cheer him up, "Dads are going to be dads."
The former child star even touched on his relationship with Kylie Jenner. "Look at her world. She has been living on TV since she was a kid. Everytime she's looking around she sees a camera, and that's affecting how she's thinking and how she's perceiving people and why she has to do certain things. Situations that happen taint your mind, especially in this industry. Especially for girls."
It's hard to deny Justin Bieber's last few years. He was arrested in Miami last year under suspicion of driving under the influence, and resisting arrest.

He has also been serving a sentence of community service related to an egging incident in July of last year.
After the DUI incident, over 250,000 people petitioned the White House to have the singer deported back to Canada.
Since then, he has claimed to reformed himself through his faith and friendships with celebrities like the Kardashians family.
Most recently, Justin Bieber was under fire for telling his fans that they failed to clap on beat. Then, the singer was preparing to start performing for a Norwegian TV show last week when a fan in the front row spilled something on the stage. Bieber tried cleaning it up. But, the crowd blocked him from doing so. Bieber would later quit the show and never return.
He also walked off a Spanish radio show, he later blamed his response on having a "rough week".
