Justin Bieber: Singer Opens Up About Troubled Past

Justin Bieber has opened up about his troubled past in a candid new interview.

The pop star was arrested for drunk driving and driving without a valid license in January 2014. He has also been accused of faking illness to skip a ‘Sorry’ songwriting dispute deposition, and allegedly headbutting a man after a pre-Grammys event.

Now in a new chat with Vogue, the Canadian superstar explained how finding fame at such a young age led to his reckless behaviour later on in life.

“I was real at first,” Justin says, “and then I was manufactured as, slowly, they just took more and more control,” he said.

“I started really feeling myself too much. People love me—that’s honestly what I thought. I got very arrogant and cocky. I was wearing sunglasses inside.”

From another interview in 2017

“I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed,” he continued. “My mom always said to treat women with respect. For me that was always in my head while I was doing it, so I could never enjoy it. Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark. I think there were times when my security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing.”

He later added that he had “a legitimate problem with sex,” also revealing that he recently attended a weeklong intensive group-therapy retreat where “you sit on a mat, you put a pillow down, and you beat your past out of it.”

“I beat the fact that my mom was depressed a lot of my life and my dad has anger issues. Stuff that they passed on that I’m kind of mad they gave me,” he said.
