Canadian singer/songwriter Justin Bieber has opened up about his past mistakes. The Baby singer admitted that he wants trustworthy people around him.

During an interview with Z100′s Elvis Duran, Selena Gomez's former boyfriend revealed he is careful in whom he puts his faith in. Bieber has not had the easiest of times in the past years. The Boyfriend singer has had to face criticism over a series of scandals, including fights with the paparazzi and allegations of assault.

"Trusting people is hard, especially for me. I've trusted people who I probably shouldn't have trusted before and they've hurt my heart," he said. "I'm a pretty sensitive guy, so I'll lay it all on the line, and they'll kind of pull it. So now I'm figuring out there's certain people I can't do that with."

"Here's what I'll tell the people: Don't let someone who ruined your trust ruin that next person's chance to gain that trust. I think I let that affect me and change the way I looked at people for a while," he added.

Bieber who is single since his relationship with the 22-year-old Come And Get It singer ended, talked about his new love.

"Yes. I am in love...Her name is Esther, she's my little puppy!" the singer said. "She's adorable. She's a silky terrier. She makes me smile."
