Justin Bieber on Being a Child Star: “It’s the Toughest Thing in the World”

Justin Bieber says life as a child star really sucks, just look at Kylie Jenner for evidence.

J ustin says that being in the spotlight for your entire life really messes with you. He uses the example of Kylie Jenner, who has grown up appearing on reality tv and he thinks it has shaped her view of life in a possibly negative way. He explained that it can be hard for young girls in particular:

“I wouldn’t suggest being a child star. It’s the toughest thing in the world. I want people to be more kind to young celebrities. Like Kylie [Jenner]. Look at her world: She has been living on TV since she was a kid. Every time 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 … Everything is so [based] on people’s looks and stuff … Look at the statistics on how many child stars have crumbled and turned out to be wack jobs. It’s because — it’s f—ed, bro, this lifestyle.”

Speaking on his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, Justin says he is proud of who she is now and will always love her despite their break-up:

“I’m proud of the woman she is today/ When you love someone that much, even if something comes between you, it’s a love that never really dies. I know I had a lot of play in that one. I don’t know what she’s saying about me.”

Addressing his recent public meltdowns (there have been a few), Justin says he is struggling with life at the moment and admits fame almost got the better of him:

“It might seem awesome from the outside, but I’m struggling. Certain things broke my trust with people. Situations happen that taint your mind. I started going through the motions. 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. Empty. Lost. Like I didn’t know myself.” And what went through his head: “You’re not good enough. People hate you. You try too hard.”
