There’s no denying that Justin Bieber has had a tumultuous past. From messy breakups, to DUIs, resisting arrest, and assault—tumultuous almost seems like an understatement. Even so, we have to give him credit that he’s been pretty tame in the news lately. His marriage to Hailey Baldwin and religion has definitely had some pull in his reform. Coming to terms with what contributed to his troubled past, Bieber is now taking a step back from music to focus on himself.
It was only in February when the 25-year-old opened up about his struggle with drugs and sex. Justin further added that making music now stresses him out. Considering how he was launched into this grown-up industry at the young age of 14, there’s no lack of empathy in seeing how he turned out this way.
Earlier this month, Biebs took to Instagram to express how much he’s been struggling. Only weeks later, Bieber has now returned to Instagram again to share the post below.

So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. ? but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).
He admits to how much he’s let his fans down now and during his last tour. He also acknowledges that he’s currently working on some “deep rooted issues”. Bieber finishes off his post by explaining that his main priority at this time is to focus on his marriage, and promises to return one day, some day, soon with a kick ass album.
This industry is no joke and we’ve seen many musicians and artists break from the stress of it all. We only wish the best for him as he pulls through this difficult time— good luck, Biebs!
