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?.

A significant number of the population at once stage in their lives had Justin Bieber as their phone lock screen.

Don't deny it, our hunky, beautiful crushes were featured as our wallpapers for longer than we care to admit.

It looks like supermodel Hailey Baldwin is still in that stage of her existence, but at least hers is relevant to her current romance. The gal has got a school-aged Justin Bieber has her lock-screen, and we're GASPING.

Eagled-eyed fans spotted the phone screen after a paparazzi snapped Hailey walking around New York City last Sunday.

It's a hilarious photo of the pop star, we must say. We wonder what photo he has on his own lock-screen? It could even be the same one as Hailey's, for all we know..

Her hubby Justin is allegedly seeking treatment for depression, People reported. The 23-year-old singer is apparently exhausted and is seeking help, leaning on Hailey for support.

The religious wedding service where the pair would invite a wider circle of friends is rumoured to be postponed yet again

The ecclesiastical wedding can't take place as "…right now, Justin’s focus is getting well mentally," an insider explained to People.

"Hailey is very supportive- Justin is very open about that Hailey does nothing but help him. He would feel even more lost without Hailey – he is very grateful. They are both focused on having a happy marriage," said the source.

We hope the Biebs is getting the help he needs, but we have to applaud Hailey's lock-screen. It's nostalgia goals, and we might just have to go back and listen to Baby another thousand times.

Pop star Justin Bieber is reportedly seeking treatment for depression, according to US sources.

A source told E! News that the Sorry singer is "batting depression and he's been having a difficult time." 

"He really wants to get better. He has been seeking all the help he can get," said the insider, claiming that the star is leaning on his 22-year-old wife Hailey Baldwin for support.

Bieber soared to fame at the tender age of just 13-years-old, and recently spoke about the difficulties of growing up in the public eye.

He said: "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."

The 24-year-old has composed a strong network around him of "the people that love him most," such as his mum, wife and pastor.

The source stated that "this is just something Justin has to deal with" and that he is actively seeking professional treatment. "He is in outpatient therapy and getting help every day," the source elaborated.

"This is his focus right now." He recently got candid about his struggle with his mental health in an honest interview with Vogue. He revealed a number of personal problems, such as resentment towards his parents.

While speaking to Vogue, he said: "I've struggled with the feeling that people are using me or aren't really there for me, and that writers are looking to get something out of me and then use it against me."

People magazine allege that Justin is feeling "down and tired" and "has been struggling a bit", but the treatment and health issues have nothing to do with Hailey.

The pair tied the knot last September, with people close to them saying that Justin is very happily married: "It's just something else that he struggles with mentally."

"He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon."



One thing that most fans love to buy at concerts are t-shirts. So much so, they've even become a major trend in the fashion world.

But, one fan may have been left disappointed when she received a t-shirt from Justin's Purpose World Tour – and it had a very embarrassing typo:

Yep. The name of his OWN tour, Purpose, is spelt wrong. Instead, purose is typed on the back of the shirt. Ouch.

We doubt Justin actually knew about this, because we bet he'd have a major freaker.


Selena Gomez is pulling out all the stops at the moment to show the world that she is an independent woman and has NO time for anybody that tries to drag her down. 

And with rumours popping up EVERYWHERE that she and 1D's Niall Horan are an item, she's certainly not trying to deny them.

After noticing an Instagram user was debating whether to buy Justin Beiber's new album Purpose or One Direction's Made in the A.M., Selena made it clear what album (or man) she preferred… Twice. 


I love justin but LMAO SELENA

How sassy is this girl?! 

It's possible that this was a way to show support to her new beau Mr Horan, or it could also be a way to shut down her ex who won't stop talking about her on social media.

Either way, Selena's reaction was on point and we wish we could settle every IG debate with such sass. You go girl! 


JB overload? Not at all, sure he's pulling the same stint as Beyoncé did for her self-titled album in 2013​. (Hey, if there's anyone to take career cues from, it's definitely Queen Bey.)

The videos were released in the exact same order as Purpose's 13 tracks and each vid makes up a small part of a larger project – Purpose: The Movement.

While Justin doesn't feature much in the videos, his kick-ass choreography team will definitely keep you entertained. There's also appearances from Skrillex, Diplo, Big Sean, Travis Scott and Halsey to add a little bit more star power:















It seems like Justin Bieber is having a particularly bad few weeks. 

First, he stormed off a Spanish radio show when the hosts asked him a line of awkward questions and then he ran off stage at one of his concerts because a fan annoyed him.

But that wasn't the end to the 21-year-old's bad behaviour as new footage of him flipping a chair over in a crowded restaurant has just emerged.

The short video was taken in Cannes, France over the weekend:

However, Justin went on to Twitter to defend his actions:

AND then, he even used the incident to advertise his new album:

Oh, Justin, you never fail to humour us. 


Is this the relationship news that EVERYONE has been waiting for?

Justin Bieber has just revealed that he is still not over his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez. 

According to an interview with Access Hollywood, the 21-year-old admitted that some of the material written on his new album, Purpose, is about his past love.

When Access Hollywood's Billy Bush asked Justin just how much of the album was about her, Justin replied, "A lot of it, dude." He then went on to explain that three songs on Purpose were written specifically for her. #Swoon.

He also said that he and Selena need some time to do some individual "soul-searching" so they can figure themselves out, but the singer didn't deny that they might get back together some day, noting that they still keep in touch.

"[She] is someone I love dearly. I'm never going to stop loving her. I'm never going to stop checking in on her. 

"I don't think if you end a relationship, you should end that, unless it was super toxic and you guys were hurting each other physically or mentally," he said.

"We always respected each other and we still respect each other."

Now, we don't know about you, but if Selena got back together with the Biebs, he just might tone down his crazy antics. Only time will tell. 


After a rough week, and TWO tantrums, Justin Bieber is finally back on social media to release a new song from his upcoming album, Purpose.

I'll Show You is the third song that Justin has shared with his fans after he posted a short clip on Instagram with a caption that promised fans they could hear more if they pre-ordered the complete album. 


Today. #IllShowYou #PURPOSE preorder for the song.

The full version was then made available to fans last night on Spotify.

The 21-year-old revealed that his new album will have 19 tracks, after he released the track list last week. It also features collaborations with Ariana Grande and Nas. 

His album is going head to head with One Directions's Made in the A.M, when it's released on November 13. The battle is on!
