“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. I just hope that the next 14-year-old kid who doesn’t understand the power of these words does not make the same mistakes I made years ago. At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did.”

Justin Bieber released a statement to US Weekly regarding the second video in which he uses racial slurs. In the newest video, posted by TMZ yesterday, Justin sings a parody of his song “One Less Lonely Girl” but replaces the word “girl” with the n-word and jokes about the KKK. In the apology released today, it’s clear that he’s asking for leniency because both videos were filmed several years ago, when he was under age. (He used a similar apology for the first video.)

Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, posted his own message on Instagram about the scandal, which reads: ”Some mistakes have no excuses. They are just wrong. But how a man reacts to those mistakes… How he owns it and learns from it… That defines him more than the mistake itself.” [US Weekly] [Image via WENN]
