Justin Bieber Opens Up About Heavy Drug Use And Struggle With SuperstardomSeptember 3, 2019
Justin Bieber shares his past troubles on social media.
The pop titan posted a letter to fans on Instagram explaining trauma he experienced as a rising singing sensation and how that affects him today.
“Have u noticed the statistics of child stars and the outcome of their life,” Bieber wrote. “There is an insane pressure and responsibility put on a child who’s brain, emotions, frontal lobes (decision making) aren’t developed yet.”
JB says he found himself “…18 with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted.”
“I started doing pretty heavy drugs at 19 and abused all my relationships,” Bieber wrote. “I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry. I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind, a shell of a person that i had become.”
He also acknowledged some of his infamous scandals. “By 20, I made every bad decision you could have thought of and went from one of the most loved and adored people in the world to the most ridiculed, judged, and hated person in the world.”
Bieber has since married model Hailey Baldwin. “Now I am navigating the best season of my life ‘MARRIAGE’ !! Which is an amazing, crazy, new responsibility,” he wrote. “You learn patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility, and all of the things it looks like to be a good man.”
He ended the post with some words of wisdom.
“All this to say even when the odds are against you, keep fighting. Jesus loves you,” Bieber ended his note. “Be kind today, be bold today and love people today, not by your standards but by God’s perfect unfailing love.”
