Alanis Morissette talks Justin Bieber: He’s Defining Himself


Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette talks about Justin Bieber. When asked if she had a sympathy for Justin Bieber during an interview with the TorontoSun, here’s what she said:

I guess you have some sympathy for Justin Bieber?

It’s very difficult because when you’re that age you’re trying to define yourself, trying to find out who you are, what your values are and what you believe in. You’re supposed to be experimenting. It’s a time when you’re supposed to be trying on red, blue, yellow, green, you know? Seeing what works for you and finding out what integrity even means. All of this happening in the public eye while you’re being hyper-judged, hyper-accessed… it’s not the ideal environment to be cutting your teeth on. It’s a very unusual circumstance to be famous, while you’re in the early stage of development… I still have PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) from it.

    It must be hard being a celeb. When you have millions of people hating you even other Celebs.

      It is hard. He gets tons of hate everyday and by the media. That’s why I never want to be famous

  • Lailani

    Justin is a good guy

    Alanis nailed it on the head! People expect him to be perfect because of his good-boy image he developed at a young age, nobody remembers that at his age is when people drink, try drugs, make stupid choices and get a little wild. Both him and Miley are fine, they’re just growing up. The people around them are paying attention, they know what’s going on, and they’ll make sure they don’t do anything to hurt themselves.

  • Hannah Cortez

    I agree with her. People think that just bcuzz he was that cute face Justin 3 years ago expect him to be perfect. Yes he made a lot of stupid things but he’s learning from them and he isn’t a kid anymore. He’s going to be 21 he will make mistakes and people need to accept that he grew up and he isn’t going to be what people want him to be
