Justin Bieber received ''glowing reviews'' at a probation meeting yesterday (05.02.15).

The 'Boyfriend' hitmaker - who was placed on probation for two years after egging a neighbour's house last year - met with an officer at Santa Monica Courthouse and the discussion went without a hitch, sources told website TMZ.

Justin - who also had to pay $80,000 in damages, attend 12 anger management classes and complete six days of community labour as punishment for the egging incident - recently apologised for his controversial antics and claimed he had been ''pretending'' to be someone else.

In a video message to fans made after a ''nervous'' appearance on the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show', he said: ''I was really nervous, and I think I was nervous because I was afraid of what people are thinking about me right now.

''It's been a minute since I've been in a public appearance and I didn't want to come off arrogant or conceited - or basically how I've been acting the past year or a year and a half. I'm not who I was pretending to be. And where I say pretending - often we pretend to be something we're not as a cover-up of what we're truly feeling inside.

''Just being young and growing up in this business is hard.Growing up in general is hard.''

As well as feeling remorseful for his past conduct, Justin, 20, wants people to know how much he ''genuinely cares'' and wants to be a good person.

He added: ''I really wanted people to know how much I care. How much I care about people. And how I'm not that person to say that 'I don't give a f**k.

''I'm a person that genuinely cares. And although what's happened in the past has happened, I just want to make the best impression on people and be kind and loving and gentle and soft.''
