Justin Bieber + Hoodies.
I know there’s sunshine behind that rain
I know there’s good times behind that pain
Can you tell me how I can make a change?
I close my eyes and I can see a brighter day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray for the brokenhearted
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the ones not breathing
I pray for all the souls in need
I pray, can you give ‘em one today?
I just can’t sleep tonight
Can someone tell me how to make a change?
If you’re not a belieber, you probably wouldn’t understand this. People criticize him everywhere he goes, what he does or does not even do. Media makes up rumors or makes a big deal out of a mistake he has made. People don’t see the way he’s trying to become a man in the scrutinizing eye of the media, the fame. He’s trying to get to know the boundaries. Making mistakes is human, Justin is human. He’s a nineteen year old guy that wants to make those mistakes, so he can learn from them and become the man he knows he can be, be the man he knows that’s inside of him.
People see Justin as a nineteen year old boy who should be an example for everyone, especially teens. But they forget that ‘perfect’ doesn’t exist. That behind that popstar, is a human being with feelings and a self confidence that’s not made out of steel. He has insecurities just like everyone else. He has gone through things that are tough on him and might have broken him a few times. He’s on his way to heal. People forget that because for them it’s easy to hate and to say “you know, I don’t care, I don’t know him, I don’t want anything to do with him”. People easily chose the way to criticize without even knowing what’s behind it all.
People forget way to easily that behind that guy, there are millions of people supporting him for a reason of their own. People who’ve been broken themselves and found a way of healing through his music. A reason to have a smile on their faces, again.
Just like Justin helped us beliebers to smile, to overcome certain obstacles in life.. We have helped Justin in our own way as well. Just being there. Even if he doesn’t know our names individually. He sees, feels and notices the support, the love coming from our screams, chants, tweets, videos, pictures and edits we make. He sees it through our bieber experiences or even how we react to his music. He sees and I think in a way it helps him to know that even though some people won’t understand. We in a way, do, understand him.
People who aren’t beliebers simply wouldn’t understand that..
It works both ways. He helps us, we help him.
I’ve been thinking about you… Do you think about me, still?
Everyone grows up. So does Justin. But that doesn’t mean he’ll be a complete different person. He might make mistakes and he’ll mature in what he does, who he is. But in the end, he’ll always still be kidrauhl at heart.
"It hurts, it hurts a lot… but you know what? I understand them because they have told me that I hurt them too with my attitude sometimes and I apologize if I ever hurt them because I know I’m a very impulsive person and I don’t even know what I do sometimes, but I’m human and I’m sorry if I ever hurt anyone of them. They get mad at me sometimes on the internet, they think I won’t notice what they say about me, but I do. I see everything and it seriously tears me apart when I see that they say "I don’t want to be a belieber anymore", you can ask anyone; Ryan, my mom, my dad… anyone. They say that I’ve changed and… I mean, of course I’ve changed, I’m not going to be the same 15 year-old kid that most of them discovered on YouTube, I’ve grown up and my real fans will understand that. But I respect their decision if they go and I love them if they stay with me. If I could, I would hug each one of my beliebers, one by one, the ones who didn’t stay and the ones that are still with me, supporting me. I just want them to know that I love them… I love them so much. And I don’t say this because of publicity, I just feel like I truly love them, like they have become a really important part of my family and I apologize if I have ever hurt them, I’m a person and I make mistakes. Everything I ask for is: the ones that are still with me, stay with me, because if I ever lose them, I’m going to lose everything. I don’t care about the fame, what I care about is if I lose my real beliebers, I’m not going to be able to have them back by my side. I promised them something and they know about it. Everything I have achieved is just because of them, because of their unconditional support, they are the ones who made me into the person that I am today and you can’t even imagine how thankful to them I’m for that. Please, don’t take my Beliebers away from me, that’s everything I’m asking for. Please, stay with me.”- Justin Drew Bieber
