Justin Bieber Has Finally Opened Up About His Troubled Life

It’s hard to believe its been more than a decade since the world was struck with Bieber Fever. Justin Bieber was only 14 when YouTube videos of him singing went viral and landed him a record deal with Usher. Before he knew it, he was performing in front of thousands of screaming fans.

But over the course of his early career, Bieber has fallen into the tradition child-star trap. Arrests, illegal substances, and very public breakups eventually led to him canceling his 2017 world tour and falling off the map. Well, he’s back, married, and has finally opened up about his troubled life.

Justin was more than 150 shows deep into the world tour for his fourth studio album Purpose when he abruptly canceled the last 14 shows. At the time, he released a statement saying it was for his “soul and well-being” but left his fans to guess for the rest.

He eventually revealed to Vogue that he was battling full-blown depression and that he was feeling lonely and just “needed some time.”
