Of course, Bieber could use a little sympathy after the damage he’s done to his career with one bad episode after another.
When he isn’t spitting on people, he’s trying to pick fights, even though he’s a pipsqueak. Everyone knows he acts out because he’s surrounded by burly bodyguards.
Or, his so-called “friends” are selling him out to tabloids with photos or videos of him using drugs or pissing in some poor janitors mop bucket at a high-end New York City restaurant.
In any event, his latest clip, titled “#Smile,” was released today (Oct. 18). It’s culled from his upcoming movie, which is supposed to reveal the real Justin Bieber.
“You always got to keep a smile on your face, through all the negativity,” he says in hushed tones.
“You’ve got to hide your emotions sometimes, especially for me going on stage,” he adds.
But, hey, he says it’s all part of the job.
“I’m upset, and I don’t want to have to smile and put on a happy… but sometimes you just got to suck it up,” he says. “That’s just one of the things you’ve got to deal with being in this position, in this world, in the industry.”
Too bad so much of his grief is self-inflicted.
