Justin Bieber Says He's Bullied Every Day, Releases New Single "Confident"

It isn't always glitz and glam being Justin Bieber.

The pop star opened up to Ryan Seacrest Monday morning about his new film Believe and the hurdles he faces with constant media scrutiny

"I think Never Say Never showed hope and I think Believe is how you get back up when you fall down and really that story of what's going on behind the scenes," he revealed. "People don't get to see me living as a 19-year-old boy…I'm still finding myself and when I have the media attacking me every day it's no [different] than bullying that happens in school."

He added, "I think this movie really shows people who I am as a person, of course I make mistakes growing up and I'm not perfect, people forget I'm a human being [and] I have to make mistakes and grow stronger."

Biebs even addressed the frenzy surrounding a few recent events that caused quite a bit of controversy—namely, the sleeping tape caught by a Brazilian woman.

"A lot of stuff has been confused…I've been on tour…so no one really knows what I'm doing out here," he said.

The "Beauty and a Beat" singer admitted that his close friends and family know the real story and remain supportive throughout his public hurdles.

But there's one piece of advice that he continues to get from mothers around the globe.

"I think a lot of moms want me to pull my pants up," he said laughing.

It's been a busy day for the Biebs. In honor of Music Mondays, the teen heartthrob released "Confident" in the early hours.

The track hit the No. 1 spot hours after it was available on iTunes.
