‘I Don’t Care’ crooner Justin Bieber opens up about child stardom, drug abuse and depression

Justin Bieber has blamed child stardom for him being “disrespectful to women” and him using “pretty heavy drugs” as a teenager.

The ‘Sorry’ hitmaker struggled with being tossed into the limelight at just 13 years old because his whole life – right down to his “emotions” and “finances” – was under scrutiny and it got to the point where he considered ending his own life.

Taking to his Instagram account, the 25-year-old singer said: “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. Sometimes it can even get to the point where you don’t even want to live anymore.

“… Humility comes with age. You hear these things as a young boy and you actually start believing it, Rationality comes with age and so does your decision-making process. Everyone did everything for me so I never even learned the fundamentals of responsibility.”

“By this point, I was 18 with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted. This is a very scary concept for anyone. By 20 I made every bad decision you could have thought and gone from one of the most loved and adored people in the world to the most ridiculed, judged and hated the person in the world .”

By the time he turned 19 years old, Justin – who was dating Selena Gomez at the time – had started dabbling in illegal substances and had “abused” all of his relationships because he was “resentful” towards women.

He explained: “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. I felt like I could never turn it around. ”

Although he got himself to a place where he didn’t think he could return, the ‘Baby’ hitmaker has managed to “bounce back” from his “terrible decisions” and is learning to appreciate those around him.

He explained: “It’s taken me years to bounce back from all of these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits. Luckily god blessed me with extraordinary people who love me for me.”

Justin believes he’s now going through the “best season” of his life after he married Hailey Baldwin last year because it’s taught him how to be a “good man.”

He concluded: “Now I am navigating the best season of my life ‘MARRIAGE’ !! Which is an amazing crazy new responsibility. You learn patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility and all of the things it looks like to be a good man. All this to say even when the odds are against you keep fighting .”

As earlier reported by The Sauce, Justin Bieber has often been portrayed as less than a saint after being embroiled in scandal after scandal. In July 2019, Ellen Page’s wife accused Justin Bieber of “underpaying” her when she choreographed his tour in 2016 to the point where she couldn’t afford to eat. Emma Portner, 24, has hit out at the ‘I Don’t Care’ hitmaker for “degrading” women after he made “millions” out of his ‘Purpose World Tour’ – which she helped put together with her dance routines – while she earned “zilch” from it.
