Bieber: 'My life is not easy'

USA Today caught up with the Bugatti Biebz for an interview. Here are some of the highlights:

  • First time they met was in 2010. They enjoyed fried chicken, and played video games during the interview. Justin seemed more like a kid who wanted to have fun rather than a popstar at the time. Journalist thinks Justin got carried away with the "fun" part as he grew older.

  • He changed over the years. Interviews became less often, and when they did happen, Justin was very withdrawn

  • He swears he has grown up though, and is eager to show the world. Beginning with his Roast airing tomorrow.

  • There wasn't an incident in particular that made him realize that he needed a change. "I had to see the downs to appreciate the ups and know what I want. I'm the type of person who has to learn the hard way. Sometimes I just have to see what it feels like. I got to the point where I wasn't happy."

  • His entourage has changed. "I left a lot of people behind who weren't on the same journey I was on."

  • He is not looking to get romantically involved with anyone anytime soon. "At this point in my life, I'm so focused on myself that I'm not looking for a girlfriend. I'm just trying to make sure I'm 100% so I can add to the person I want."

  • On the people that thinks he has it easy: "Unless you're stupid, I don't think you'd think it would be easy to be who I am. Just use your head, you'll understand that my life is not easy. You need to have mess-ups without anyone judging you and that's not something I was able to do. I think that people realize. They see it now, the transition. We can talk and do interviews and say that I'm in a better place, but until they see the walk, see the transition come to life, that's what's really going to matter."
