Justin Bieber Apologizes For Being Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber owns up to his recent antics and promises a move toward his best days.

Justin Bieber's never truly gone away, but the tabloid-heavy last few years – the arrests, the romantic troubles, the questionable friends – have gotten in the way of his talent.

Saturday's taping for the upcoming March 30 "Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber" came at the perfect time after a series of smart career moves (that Calvin Klein editorial didn't hurt and certainly introduced Justin to an older audience). Hosted by Kevin Hart, the show also featured appearances from Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Martha Stewart and they all had lots of jokes for the Biebs.

Even through all the laughs, Justin also took time to apologize for his past actions.

"I turned a lot of people off over the past few years, but I know I can still turn out good music and turn everything all around," he said according to the Chicago Tribune.

JB's most recent release, 2013's Journals, was an intelligent, progressive turn at the sort of indie r&b that has been the rage in underground circles for years. It was a quality project, but was ultimately overshadowed by his troubles and run-ins with the law.

"I've lost some of my best qualities. For that, I am sorry," said Justin. "I'm looking forward to being someone who you guys can all look at and be proud of." Don't worry, Justin. We're positive this small, post-teen hiccup won't overshadow your career. We're all rooting for you!
