Justin Bieber Compares Himself to Amy Winehouse, Gandhi

by at .

Justin Bieber is rich and famous. He's living out his dream as a musician and he has supermodels throwing themselves at him everywhere he turns.

But Justin Bieber would not wish his life upon his worst enemy.

The artist actually says this in the latest issue of NME.

"I feel isolated," Bieber tells the magazine, explaining why:

"You're in your hotel room and there are fans all around, paparazzi following you everywhere, and it gets intense. When you can't go anywhere or do anything alone you get depressed.

"I would not wish this upon anyone."

We don't doubt life as a celebrity has its fault... but easy there, Justin.

Do you really expect everyday folks to break out their violins because your fans can sometimes be too adoring?

You just took a selfie with Jennifer Aniston. Life could be worse.

"People see the glam and the amazing stuff, but they don't know the other side. This life can rip you apart," he shares.

"I watched the Amy Winehouse documentary 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.

Just like Winehouse - who died of a drug overdose at age 27 - Bieber says people find it “funny” to continually “poke” him and “[push]” him down until there’s no more of himself.  

Bieber, of course, had himself a pretty tough 2014.

He saw his reputation destroyed as a result of a DUI arrest... many loud parties... numerous examples of reckless driving... harassment of photographers... the time he hurled an egg at a neighbor ... and the time he peed in a restaurant mop bucket.

Justin has mostly taken responsibility for these actions in the past.

But not so much here.

"It's because of the way the 'Justin Bieber brand' was portrayed," he explains by way of blame for his troubles.

"I was a wholesome pop star who was so amazing who had nice hair and a f-ckin image that no one could ever live up to.

"So when all this happened people were like, 'Woah, let's rip him apart.'"

But wait! Bieber gets even more ridiculous. Look at who he compares himself to next.

"If you see Gandhi roll up a blunt, it's different to seeing Ryan Gosling roll up a blunt. You wouldn't give Ryan Gosling a hard time," Bieber says.

Yes, Justin Bieber really did just compare himself to Mahatma Gandhi, while simultaneously insinuating that Mahatma Gandhi has rolled up some blunts.

We're not sure which half of that statement is more absurd.
