Justin Bieber Says He Was Celibate For A Year Because He Had A “Legitimate Problem With Sex”
Justin Bieber abstained form having sex, so God rewarded him with Hailey Baldwin.
I’ve really missed the Biebs. His presence in music is virtually non-existent at this point, so when I saw he and wife Hailey graced the cover of Vogue, I ran. RAN to read up on the new tunes. But, Bieber’s interview didn’t center around his forthcoming(?) album. Instead, he opened up about his sex life. I didn’t see this coming.
JB says he had “legitimate problem with sex,” so he just stopped having it.
“God doesn’t ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff. He’s like, I’m trying to protect you from hurt and pain,” he said.
“I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that. I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result,” he continued. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior.”
JB clarifies he doesn’t consider himself religious, however.
“That confuses a lot of people because they’re like, Well, you go to church. I believe in the story of Jesus—that’s the simplicity of what I believe. But I don’t believe in all the religious elitism and pretentiousness, like people are better than you because they come to church, like you have to go to church and dress a certain way. I get sensitive when religion comes up because it’s been so hurtful to a lot of people. I don’t want to be thought of as someone who stands for any of the injustice that religion has done and does do.”
As for the music I was so excited to read about?
“Just thinking about music stresses me out,” he says. “I’ve been successful since I was thirteen, so I didn’t really have a chance to find who I was apart from what I did. I just needed some time to evaluate myself: who I am, what I want out of my life, my relationships, who I want to be—stuff that when you’re so immersed in the music business you kind of lose sight of.”
And don’t expect a tour for some time, either.
“I got really depressed on tour,” he recalls. “I haven’t talked about this, and I’m still processing so much stuff that I haven’t talked about. I was lonely. I needed some time.”
