Justin Bieber could do with some friends right now. The under-fire singer has painted a lonely picture of his fame bubble by revealing he can count his mates on one hand and said no one calls him these days.
‘Literally, my phone never rings. I only have, like, four people that I keep in contact with,’ said the 19-year-old.
Dogged by damning headlines that range from animal cruelty to backstage diva, Justin says the paranoia has well and truly kicked in.
And insisting less is more when it comes to finding support, the Canadian added: ‘I just don’t trust anybody. But I don’t need a bunch of friends to make me happy.’
As for his small inner circle, he said: ‘They don’t see me as Justin Bieber, but just see me as Justin.’
After losing his cool in front of the cameras, Biebs says he hasn’t lost the plot just yet.
