Justin Bieber is hoping his new movie will show fans and critics alike just what his crazy life in the spotlight is like – and people will start feeling sorry for him.

The pop superstar’s “Believe” concert movie hits theaters on Christmas Day, and he’s hoping the film will help to explain some of the negative press he has picked up on tour this year.

Bieber has hit the headlines for everything from showing up late at concerts to urinating in restaurant mop buckets and he hopes his new movie will help get him back into fans and the media’s good graces.

Speaking after a Monday concert in Perth, Australia, he tells DJ Ryan Seacrest, “A lot of stuff has been confused because I’ve been out of the public eye… I’ve been on tour… so no one really knows what I’m doing out here.

“Believe is how you get back up when you fall down and really that story of what’s going on behind the scenes… People don’t get to see me living as a 19-year-old boy.

“I’m still finding myself and when I have the media attacking me everyday, it’s no (different) than bullying that happens in school… I think this movie really shows who I am as a person… Of course I make mistakes growing up… and I’m not perfect… People forget I’m a human being (and) I have to make mistakes and grow stronger.”
