A recent visit to "Ellen" apparently prompted Justin Bieber to take to Facebook to record a dimly lit confessional video detailing his personal insecurities about how he's come off over the past year. And he's just trying to be Justin, guys.

"It's been a minute since I've been in a public appearance, and I didn't want to come off arrogant or conceited — basically how I've been acting the past year, year and a half," he says of his interview with Ellen DeGeneres. "I'm not what I was pretending to be. Why I say I was pretending is often we pretend to be something we're not as a cover up of what we're truly feeling inside. And there was a lot of feelings going on in there. … Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Just growing up in general is hard."

If this is how he reacts to a sit-down with DeGeneres, maybe this whole Comedy Central roast thing isn't such a great idea.
