Justin Bieber has gotten a lot of flack in recent years, from the media and his fans alike, for his increasingly outlandish and bad behavior.

From illegally bringing his pet monkey into Germany to peeing in a mop bucket at a restaurant, the newly adult Bieber has seemed a far cry from the teen singing sensation who attracted the love of millions.

Bieber also has a history of getting very “real” on social media and sharing what matters when it matters, without hiding behind fame and a fortress of media protection.

In an Instagram post this week, Justin shared his own inside experience with getting so famous at such a young age, after being discovered on YouTube by Scooter Braun as a cherubic thirteen-year-old.
