He might be a filthy rich superstar, but he's still got problems just like us!

Justin Bieber covers the latest Billboard magazine and talks all about growing up in the spotlight and the negative effects fame has had on him, and we can actually see where he's coming from.

"It might seem awesome from the outside, but I’m struggling," he confessed as he discussed his seemingly charmed life. "Certain things broke my trust with people....I felt like people were judging me all the time. I came out alive. I came out swinging. But I was close to letting [fame] completely destroy me," he added.

The Biebs did take a break from his pity party to comment on those now famous penis photos! In case you missed it, the Canadian sensation was photographed fully nude on his balcony in Bora Bora, and then his dad opted to tweet about his package.

"I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads," he admitted.

The "What Do You Mean" crooner then revisited the topic of celebrity by discussing his pal Kylie Jenner. "Look at her world: She has been living on TV since she was a kid. Every time she’s looking around she sees a camera, and that’s affecting how she’s thinking and how she’s perceiving people and why she has to do certain things ... Situations that happen taint your mind, especially in this industry. Especially for girls," he lamented.

The most shocking part of the sit-down? When the chart topper revealed he's on the outs with mom Patti Malette! "I was distant because I was ashamed. I never wanted my mom to be disappointed in me and I knew she was. We spent some time not talking, so it takes time to rebuild that trust. She's living in Hawaii now, so it's hard, but getting better. She's an amazing woman and I love her," he revealed.

If JB wants a shoulder to cry on, we're here!
