Justin Bieber has owned up to his bad behaviour in recent years, saying he now feels "disappointed" with himself over some of his infamous escapades.

The repentant singer made the admission in an interview with Seventeen Magazine a month after his antics were ripped apart by comedians in a Comedy Central Roast.

Some examples of his misbehaviour include egging his neighbour’s property, abandoning his pet monkey in Germany, urinating in a bucket in New York and being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Miami (the charges were later dropped).

A judge in Argentina also issued a warrant for his arrest in April after he failed to respond to a summons for allegedly ordering bodyguards to attack at photographer in 2013.

However, Bieber, 21, insists this was all just an act of rebellion and he is apparently ready to turn over a new leaf, much to the relief of Beliebers everywhere.

“I was rebelling a little bit,” he explained. “I was getting cockier and cockier. I didn’t have people to check me. I looked back and I was disappointed in myself.

“You have to own up to the mistakes. You have to say, ‘I’m sorry if I’ve let you down’. I always want to be honest, and let people know that those mistakes aren’t who I am. Who I am is someone who really cares about people.”
