Justin Bieber's Believe Director, Jon M Chu Defends The Star: He's "Just A Kid!"

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersJustin Bieber

Justin Bieber Believe director defends him

Hmmm this seems like a pretty odd defense to us!

If Justin Bieber is neither a bad boy nor a perfect human being, then what is he?

Well, not retiring from music, that's for sure!

Jon M Chu, the Believe director, has spoken out in defense of the star, (probably to get more people to come see the film), saying that the media's portrayal ain't the truth, but neither is the personality Biebs puts on for the world.

Say whaaaaaattttt??

The director said:

"He's not as perfect as he says he is and he's not as bad as the paparazzi portray him to be. He's a kid."

We'd hardly call the Biebs a kid — he's 19 years-old!!

And we're not so sure it's entirely the media's fault, Justin is known to pee in buckets, get into fights with paparazzi, offend entire countries, and a slew of other inappropriate things.

So, Biebsy is definitely still YOUNG, but he's young and in the public's eye with hundreds of thousands of followers who look up to him.

While he may not WANT to be role model, the truth is that he IS one and should be more careful of the things he does.

Sure, he does some philanthropic deeds and we can't expect him to stay in and on his couch all the time, but someone needs to teach Justin that peeing in a bucket is not the smartest thing in the world to do.

And will, obviously, not gain you fans, especially in the media.

    Perez this is giving me a headache. I'm surprised Scooter hasn't lost it yet from all the Bieber induced stress.
    The facts are whatever we want to believe, you can fly like an angel into the roof with your musical wings, but the porbability of crossing over for a child star is negligible, so it's a pretty safe bet, given what has already occured, that this will not happen.
    Trying to do the impossible has been attempted by many child stars before him, and they have done it a lot better than him and failed. Doesn't look too good.
    Wall Street Journal is confirming he isn't retiring now lol. Oh Lord this is like Days of Our Lives.

    Kids don't have tattoos. Kids don't sleep with prostitutes. He's over 18. The law and everybody sees him as an adult. Don't give me the 'he's just a kid' bullshit. It will only make things worse because he thinks he can get away with all the bullshit he does.

    Oh spare us the he's just a "Kid" he has more life experience, with the amount of international travel he has done, than most adults will do in their life time. He's not a "Kid" he's a self indulged little shit who because of the "Yes" men he has surrounded himself with now thinks the whole world loves him enough to forgive every immature and disgusting thing he does.
    Justin beiber isn't a "Kid" he's a loser who has Kanye West style delusions that he's adored by everyone on the planet.

    The only excuse you gave, Perez, is the whole "peeing in a bucket" that he apologized for, but you just won't let go. everything else you have no proof for. it's true he does things he may regret, but it's better to make mistakes than not to. he learns from them. you on the other and, you and you media keep lying for pulicity and money. you keep telling lies and not thinking about who's life and name you ruin. you make Justin something he's not to the world, you've made it seam like he is the most perfect person in the world and therefor can not make mistakes. well, here's something someone needs to tecah you, maybe punch in your ass so you understand it; HE'S HUMAN. AND EVERY HUMAN ISN'T PERFECT. THEY MAKE MISTAKES - NO MATTER HOW BIG OR SMALL- THEY LEARN FROM THEM AND THEY MAKE THEM BETTER PEOPLE. HE DESERVES SOOO MUCH BETTER THAN YOU PUT HIM THROUGH. you are all bullies. and I'll say that all the time beacuse its true. you are all incapable of the truth and you are heartless.

    Is he Peter Pan? How is he the only one that at 19 is still considered a kid. The rest of us on limited resources have to grow up. NO excuse for him. What his excuse going to be wants he hits 20? He has the worst attitude in the business and is coming across so ungrateful.



  11. 11

    The way Justin acts has less to do with his age and more to do with his level of maturity. He never learned self-control or how to censor himself. Unless someone he actually respects takes him in hand and gets him to start acting responsibly, he'll continue the way he is. The problem is, no one of his acquaintance care enough about him to call him out for it. He won't always be 19. What excuse will people use for the way he acts then?

    you all act as if you were forced to be as mature as possible and as wise as possible the second you turned 18 because you're legally an adult. it doesn't work like that and we all know that we make mistakes even after we're considered adults.. I'm sure all of you commenting that you're way more mature and grown than him are still making mistakes. the difference is that you're not under a microscope. you get to make mistakes and you're not being judged by the whole world.. Justin makes a few mistakes and is hated for it by millions. He sees what people say about him though and learns from it, he grows from it, where as you sit at home and send hate from behind a computer screen acting as if what you say about him will make a difference in the world. He is still a kid and everyone learns at their own pace, you cant expect him to grow up when you feel he has to.. it will happen and he'll out grow all of these antics. but stop trying to speed up the process, its not your place to tell him how to do what he does and when.

    Re: Melissa – Neither myself nor friends were ever that immature or ungrateful, nor did we makes such childish mistakes. We were adults and yes we were expected to grow up at 18. This generation is just full of brats who think they are owed something. 18 IS an adult, no excuses. The rest of us never had them.

    Re: TexasDey
    I agree he has a massive communication problem. He runs on impulse too much, and is not thinking prior to doing things thus having to make a lot more mistakes than necessary.
    Anyways his reputation is destroyed partly from his bad choices, and he doesn't seem to care. He is not learning from his mistakes because I keep seeing the same ones made 12 months ago or even 24 months ago again and again. That is being foolish. He is 19, but making decisions and acting like a 12 year old as Miley put it. I certainly didn't act like this at 19, and i'm sure many others didn't given the response from the public. Only a few more months till he is 20, and the media will be even pickier, so man up Justin it's going to get harder unless you step out and retire.

    Re: RiRiRe: Bongo
    I agree.
    The public is forgiving the first few mistakes, but when a person makes it over and over again this is when everyone will start to get frustrated and nitpick.
    I've seen Justin make some mistakes several times over even when he has billions of people telling him what he is doing is not socially responsible and that he is a role model for many children. His situation is what it is, not what he wants it to be, and the sooner he embraces this and learns how to mature in line with a normal 19 year old, it instead of rebelling against it the easier his life will be. At 20 this 18-19 year old excuses will not cut it, and it's only a few months away and he has a massive amount of work to do on himself.

    Re: Mark
    I think the public have made him take responsibility through his sales. What law enforcement couldn't pin on him, the public carried out with their own justice. You can't stop the herd unfortunately. Consensus will kill you.

    Re: Bongo – he's not ungrateful.. he knows he's lucky do do what he does and to make music that inspire others. your perception of Justin is negative based off of what you read about him and off of his few mistakes he's made but it's not like they are very serious either.yes they we're childish but most mistakes are. and just because you "grew up" when you turned 18 doesn't mean everyone does. so what if he's still doing some things wrong, he should be able to figure out his life on his own pace and not be criticized for how long its taking him to figure out right from wrong. no one is perfect and only he can choose the path he goes on with his life, you may not like what he does but those decisions are ultimately up to him because he's the one who has to live with it. ease up a bit and let him learn

    Re: Melissa
    Stop making excuses for his poor behaviour. He is in the spotlight and this is what occurs when he chooses to be - Usher warned him of this. You can't control how other people think, or how other people treat you, but you can control YOURSELF. Justin clearly lacks self control.
    It's simple if he doesn't want the criticism he can simply retire. He doesn't want to retire, he needs to put up with the attention.
    Trial and error is not a great way to learn:
    "A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether."

    Re: Bongo – the difference is Whe he started he needed to have a clean cut image ND he did he had to be mature at a young age and because he was younger he kinda followed everyone's rules, as he grew up and yeah was surrounded by people who say yes he started acting like the kid he couldn't act like before, and in an industry where you have money there are no rules, so he grew up with that which in turn acts and is still a kid even if his age for some doesn't reflect that

    Re: jsdbxhdhsjsdhdhd
    more excuses…how many more excuses will come. It's almost like one excuse after another, and on a perpetual assembly line.
    The public want to see sustained change, not constant excuses. Bieber is not the only person to suffer from this, and instead of making excuses, he should start taking RESPONSIBILITY and say…"you know this isn't good enough, I will HAVE to be better." But all we keep getting is this poor me cry wolf story, and that ignites the fire further. No one is going to have pity for a kid who is rich beyond most peoples dreams (and doesn't have the brains to know what to do with it) and is asking to be felt sorry for. It wont work lol.

    Apparently Bieber is getting a chaperone now. If this is true I think it's a great idea. Don't let him make any decisions, he's lost the plot. Scooter needs to take control permanently aka like Britney's father did. He is not capable of running his empire himself, and if you continue to let him try he;ll destroy his brand. His decision making has been horrible.
    I hate to say this but this is looking like Britney Spears, but with pseudo rational justification overlayed through the guise of being a teen. He may be having a breakdown through his excessive rebellion outside that of a normal 19 year old. It's not easy to discern, so I am not sure.
    "Their duties would include monitoring Bieb’s drinks, holding him back from engaging in fights, and, when all the above fails, shielding him from the paparazzi. But Biebs is balking, insisting that he is a big boy now and doesn’t not need any kind of supervision. “He’s handling it in true Bieber fashion and acting like he doesn’t have a problem at all.”
