Justin Bieber took to social media with a shocking post after a long silence in the music industry. Many fans, and critics, of Bieber have been urging him to release some type of statement explaining the reason he has not been producing music. Come March, he opened up with a post on Instagram, he said that he had been struggling with his mental health. This, according to Bieber, was his primary reason for taking a break from music. Once Bieber made the post on Instagram explaining that his mental health had not been his only struggle, many people were shocked with the statement.

     Bieber opened the message on social media with, “It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning with the right attitude when you are overwhelmed with your life.” Some people are suggesting this may have something to do with the end of the Purpose Tour, which ended in 2017. He ended the tour due to “unforeseen circumstances”, possibly linked to his mental health and substance abuse. Bieber had concealed his struggles for the most part until this point, because of this, people are just now forming the conspiracies. 

     Bieber then followed that statement with, “Have u noticed the statistics of child stars and the outcome of their life?” Bieber was partially blaming his substance abuse and his situation on his success at such a young age. He then confessed that he, “started doing pretty heavy drugs at 19 and abused all [of his] relationships.” He also explained this situation was linked to his fame as well. He revealed that by eighteen he had “millions of dollars and access to whatever [he] wanted.” Bieber was not comfortable with this situation, and he had no hesitation sharing his feelings with his audience. Bieber became “angry” with himself, and realized that, as he said, “[he] was hiding behind, a shell of a person that [he] had become.”

     After many of his struggles being released, he concluded his post on a more positive note. The light at the end of the tunnel for Bieber was, his wife and professional model, Hailey Baldwin. According to Bieber the marriage to Baldwin is teaching him many things, which according to him are “patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility, and all of the things it looks like to be a good man.” Bieber says that now he is “navigating the best season of [his] life” Another thing Bieber credits for helping him, is Christianity. Bieber even included a bit about God in the conclusion of his post. Bieber wrapped up the post with, “Be kind today, be bold today and love people today, not by your standards but by God’s perfect unfailing love.” Now, Bieber is back in the music scene and recently released a song with Ed Sheeran, as well as a remix with Billie Eilish.
