Justin Bieber: 'I'm not where I want to be, but I'm not where I used to be'
Canadian superstar Justin Bieber has revealed that he still has a long way to go before he feels truly happy.
During a new interview with Britain's Telegraph magazine, the heartthrob admitted that he's trying to keep his head in a good place and considers himself to be a work in progress:
"There's so much I need to work on. And I'm still getting days where I'm depressed and upset. But I know that I'm not where I used to be. So that really keeps me motivated. I'm not where I wanna be - but at least I'm not where I used to be... that's a cool little slogan I've been living by."
"I got so involved in 'me me me' - because you're young and people are telling you you're great all the time. And you start believing it... I started believing the hype and acting a certain way... I could feel people's energy, and I also really didn't care. I could (not) give two s**ts if someone liked me or not. And that's where things went bad."
Bieber went onto add that he knew he had to keep on pushing with his music career: "For a minute I was just too in my head, and I just wanted to quit everything... But I knew that was the easy way out. I know I'm meant for this. I know that God has a greater purpose for me to be in this position. It's just up to me to take that calling and respect it. It takes integrity to last in this business. It takes being a good person."
