Justin Bieber has joined the likes of Miley Cyrus and Evan Rachel Wood in protesting the false rumors and overexposure in the media - and he's done it over Instagram.
Justin Bieber has been one unhappy camper ever since his European tour and the “worst 19th birthday ever”.
His Twitter and Instagram followers are the ones paying the price for the star’s misfortunes though, as he has been taking to social media to express his troubles more often than ever. “Everyone in my team has been telling me, 'keep the press happy' but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I'm going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me," Bieber wrote and then continued: "I'm a good person with a big heart. And don't think I deserve all this negative press I've worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn't stop here... All this isn't easy. I get angry sometimes. I'm human. I'm gonna make mistakes. I'm gonna grow and get better from them." It’s undeniable though that after his meteoric rise to fame, Justin has also been more privileged than any other teenager his age. So is it possible that all this exposure might be going to Justin’s head a little bit? One person, who thinks so is media strategist Howard Bragman, who commented: "The best advice I give to celebrities is that they need to develop a thick skin. And this is clearly one young man, who hasn’t done that.” Bragman also had some advise for Justin and his managers: "He's making it a bigger story instead of just letting it go away. He's a 19-year-old kid, so he shares some of the responsibility, but the bigger responsibility is to the people around him — his manager, publicist and agent — the grown ups who are supposed to give this kid counsel."
After a host of troubles on tour, Justin Bieber has been on a campaign against false rumours.
So, there you have it. Apparently all Justin needs to do is get off twitter and deal with his life in private. The question is: can he really afford to do that, if most of his career is built around social network and zero privacy?
