Justin Bieber has struggled mightily to rehabilitate his image from that period of time when he was just a little hellion peeing in buckets. "I just want people to know I’m human. I’m struggling just to get through the days. I think a lot of people are," he told NME. "You get lonely, you know, when you’re on the road. People see the glam and the amazing stuff, but they don’t know the other side. This life can rip you apart." His recent struggles have given him a particular affinity for the late Amy Winehouse. "I watched the Amy Winehouse documentary [Amy] on the plane and I had tears in my eyes because I could see what the media was doing to her, how they were treating her. People thought it was funny to poke her when she was at rock bottom, to keep pushing her down until she had no more of herself. And that’s what they were trying to do to me."

But you know whose in Bieber's corner? Kanye West. “Out of anyone in the industry who is creative and I see eye to eye with, he really gets me," said Bieber. Maybe Kanye, Bieber, and Noel Gallagher can form a supergroup?
