Justin Bieber has posted a few clips from his forthcoming Believe documentary, and they depicted the star in a humanizing light: less manufactured pop assassin, more sentient being with complex emotions. Along with his Serious R&B releases in recent weeks, it’s a mature new look for the singer, and based on the this official Believe trailer, there’s much more unveiling to be seen.
A voiceover from the star warns, “When you’ve reached a certain point in your life, there are people out there waiting to see you fall,” and the subsequent clips show various sides of Bieber. He even faces questions about the impending “trainwreck” from his recent behavior, and addresses an infamous paparazzi fracas from earlier this year. There’s even a quick shot of Bieber’s cry face (which Selena Gomez is familiar with).
Usher at one point says, “You can’t have a normal life if you’re a superstar,” which is surely true, but it looks like the film aims to show that this particular superstar is still a normal guy. Check out the trailer up top.
