Justin Bieber has explained that he made his confessional video to show people he is human and is affected by what people say about him.

The pop heartthrob - who has been involved in his share of controversies and legal troubles - posted a video on Facebook last month after appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, saying his "arrogant and conceited" attitude over the last two years was just to cover up his true feelings.

He said growing up in the industry was tough, and that he felt awkward and as if he was being judged when he appeared on the show.

Justin has now returned to Ellen's programme to further explain why he made the video.

When the chat show host asked why he had been so nervous for their interview, the All That Matters singer replied: "It was the first time I was on television for a long time and I just was worried about what people were thinking about me.

"Like I said last time, I did a lot of things over the past few years that I'm not proud of."

When Ellen quizzed Justin about making the video, the star said he had thought he looked "extra nervous" and wanted to explain it to his fans.

"I am human. People often forget that, even with their comments and stuff they think it doesn't get to me. But it gets to me. You know, things that people say bothers me and I gotta be strong enough to just keep it pushing," said the 20-year-old.

"Yeah, that's why I just wanted to make a video, to just let people know that I'm human, I love people, I love love, I'm passionate about things and I'm passionate about being better and growing so I think that this is going to be an awesome chapter in my life and I'm so glad that I have you guys supporting me."
