Justin Bieber can’t deny that he caused some pretty scandalous headlines in 2013, from attacking paparazzi to even being accused of spitting – on numerous people. But with the year coming to a close, the Biebs is speaking out about all the criticism he’s received from the media, even going on to call it “high school bullying.”

Justin called into On Air With Ryan Seacrest on Monday morning and dished on what really goes on in his life. “I’m becoming a man, but I’m still 19, I’m still finding myself,” he said. “When I have the media attacking me every day… it’s no less bullying than what happens in schools. These people calling me names, and saying things, they don’t know what’s true or not.”

Justin continued, “Of course, I make mistakes growing up, as everybody does, and I’m not perfect, I’m not a robot. People forget I’m a human being. I’ve got to make mistakes, and grow from it, and get stronger, and that’s what I plan to do.”

Bieber’s future plans of being taken seriously in the business will hopefully keep him on the right path in the future. “I want to become a young mogul, I want people to respect me for not only music, but also for making the right decisions,” he said.
