Justin Bieber is leaving no detail behind as he reveals the negative impact of being thrust into superstardom at a young age.
The singer was discovered via YouTube at age 13 by his manager Scooter Braun. Since then, his music took the world by storm one tween heart at a time. A phenomenon that was dubbed by multiple outlets as “Bieber Fever.”
Now, Bieber is 25 years old and revealing the heavy downsides of masked behind his extensive fame. The star had some pretty hard-hitting revelations in an essay he posted on Instagram. This included substance abuse, resentment and past relationships that he “abused.”
Bieber began the lengthy note by writing “It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning with the right attitude when you are overwhelmed with your life your past, job, responsibilities, emotions, your family, finances, your relationships.” He then revealed that he has been struggling with a negative mindset.
The singer then delves into how his career started and how he lacked “the fundamentals of responsibility” as he rose to fame with everything being handed to him. The “Sorry” hitmaker admitted to not having any skills useful in the real world and that along with
“millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted.” spelled trouble.
Bieber claims he started experimenting with “pretty heavy drugs” on only 19 years old adding that he “abused all of my relationships.” Which includes his highly publicized on-again-off-again romance with Selena Gomez.
But the singer’s anecdote takes a positive turn citing marriage life with wife Hailey Bieber as the reason behind his growth. Ending the note, he encourages fans to continue on fighting.
