Justin Bieber has opened up about his struggles with fame, drugs and depression in a lengthy post that just might make you a Belieber again.

The personal message was shared to his Instagram page, and he apologises for past behaviour and reflects on his growth from a child star to a confident musician and husband.

Music manager and enemy #1 of Taylor Swift, Scooter Braun, discovered Bieber when he was just 13-years-old on YouTube.

The note is opened up by the pop star by addressing recent feelings of depression, linked to the “quite unexplainable” pressure placed on a celebrity who has come from an unstable home to grow up in the chaotic media spotlight.

“It’s hard to get out of bed in the morning…when it feels like there’s trouble after trouble after trouble,” he wrote on Instagram

“You start foreseeing the day through lenses of ‘dread’ and anticipate another bad day. A cycle of feeling disappointment after disappointment. Sometimes it can even get to the point where you don’t even want to live anymore. Where you feel like it’s never going to change.”

He had "millions in the bank" by just 18-years-old and “access to whatever I wanted” but “no skills in the real world”, he said.

By 19, the singer was doing “pretty heavy drugs” and “abused” the relationships he was in: “I became resentful, disrespectful to women and angry,” he explained.

He had an epiphany moment at 20, where he had “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.

The 25-year-old wrote that his life has changed for the better, thanking his faith, marriage to Hailey Baldwin, and the support network of his friends and family for his recovery.

He made sure to add that the biggest dopamine rush you can get is being on stage, and performers turn to drugs to cope with the "huge highs and lows" of life off-stage.

Bieber has teased new music following his hit collaboration with Ed Sheeran, I Don’t Care. 

Many of us remember Purpose, his last album which was released in 2015 and delivered bangers like Sorry, What Do You Mean and Where Are U Now?.

Justin Bieber's Love Yourself describes a pretty messed up relationship and the pop star certainly doesn't hold back when describing his ex. 

Co-written by Ed Sheeran, the song paints a pretty horrendous picture of the anonymous girl in question and though the song's events could be totally true, it would be interesting to hear the perspective of the ex. 

So that's why YouTubers Yo Preston! and Kelly Kiara decided to cover the song with two sides of the story totally covered. 

Preston sings the first verse and chorus as Bieber sings it and then Kelly comes in with her own version of events that pretty much changes everything. 

"Baby you can go and f*ck yourself," goes Kelly's new version of the song and we are loving it.

Here is some breaking news that could bring a halt to your self-trashing.

We all do it, but research shows that harping on your imperfections is a really unhealthy habit – one that can actually alter your physical appearance.

A recent study found that average weight people who viewed themselves as fat were more likely to end up overweight. Low self-image can hinder friendships, job prospects, and overall well-being.

Here’s how to start loving yourself – and looking and feeling better than ever.

1. Get moving
Research has linked any type of exercise to greater body confidence. And it works whether or not your fitness level or weight changes. It’s all those lovely endorphins that make us feel better about ourselves and not the actual results.

2. Listen up
The more in touch you are with the way your body works, the less you may dwell on how you look. In one study, women who could more accurately count their heartbeats objectified themselves less. Practices like meditation and yoga can help you tune in to you.

3. Stop the ‘fat chat’
OMG, you’re so tiny; my thighs are like tree trunks. Most women think self-deprecation is harmless but it’s anything but. The next time you feel the urge to self-mock, maybe lay off yourself a little.

4. Love yourself
Leave positive messages on sticky notes around your apartment or office –  “Yeah, you are amazing!” etc. and strategically place them so they’re the last things you see before stepping out the door.

5. Mind your body language
Whenever you hunch your shoulders, cross your arms over your chest, or stare at the floor, you’re telling the world you lack confidence. Try a fake-it-till-you-make-it experiment: Walk upright, as if a string is pulling from the top of your head. When you talk to someone, squeeze your bum muscles to straighten your spine, and stand with your feet a foot apart, toes pointing at the person you’re facing.
