Justin Bieber sure has experienced a lot since he released his first single 10 years ago. He was a successful child singer turned controversial 20 year old turned quiet, young adult married by 24.
He recently did an interview with Vogue Magazine where he talked about everything he's gone through in the past few years.
First, he discussed how his mental health suffered during his last headlining tour (he ended up cancelling the last 14 dates), saying:
"I got really depressed on [2017's Purpose tour], I haven’t talked about this, and I’m still processing so much stuff that I haven’t talked about. I was lonely. I needed some time."
Then he talked about his struggles with drugs:
"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. Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark. My security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing."
He claims that he occasionally still drinks alcohol but has been clean from drugs since 2014.
He also touched on that phase where he got a LITTLE cocky (remember the egg throwing incident?). He said the following about that:
"I was real at first and then I was manufactured as, slowly, they just took more and more control. I really started feeling myself too much. People love me, I’m the s**t — that’s honestly what I thought. I got very arrogant and cocky. I was wearing sunglasses inside."
Justin also revealed that he had a sex addiction, which led him to decide to wait until marriage with his now-wife Hailey Bieber.
