This "Justin Bieber, totally humble dude" campaign is apparently just getting warmed up, as the supposedly reformed pipsqueak followed up his visit to "Ellen" and subsequent soul-searching Facebook apology video with yet another stop on Ellen DeGeneres' couch this week. "It was the first time I was on television for a long time, and I just was worried about what people were thinking about me. Like I said last time, I did a lot of things over the past few years that I'm not proud of," Bieber says, bringing the idea of stating the obvious to whole new levels.

Also, maybe we shouldn't be making fun so much, because it hurts his feelings: "With their comments and stuff, [people] think it doesn't get to me. But it gets to me," he says. "Things that people say bother me and I gotta be strong enough to just keep it pushing. That's why I just wanted to make a video to just let people know that I'm human. I love people. I love love." Apparently, though, Bieber hasn't yet learned the rule about not mixing plaids with animal prints — or just not wearing leopard-print sneakers at all. Sorry, can't help myself.
