Justin Bieber has grown up in the eye of the media, which has led to a lot of media scrutiny. He has raced cars over the limit and peeing in buckets, as well as spitting on fans and getting DUI’s! All of these incidents caused a lot of the ‘Bieber Fever’ to wear off, getting many Beliebers to walk out from the fandom. Bieber worked on his behavior and is now a changed man, happily married to supermodel Hailey Baldwin, but the ‘Baby’ hit-maker has revealed some dark details about his past. He admitted that he abused Xanax, which was a result of him feeling ashamed and guilty for his bad-boy behavior. The addiction got so bad that his crew often had to check on the singer to make sure that he still had a pulse and hadn’t overdosed! Whoa!
The star told Vogue in their March 2019 issue, “A lot of the douchey things I was doing gave people the right to be like, ‘man, that’s frickin’ douchey, bro,’ ” He further explained, “But a lot of the stuff was like—me peeing in a bucket, people made such a big deal of that. Or me owning a monkey. It’s like, if you had the money that I had, why wouldn’t you get a monkey? You would get a monkey!”
The interview with Vogue saw Justin being extremely honest about his life, “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. 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.”
Hailey also talked about her husband, saying, “I just wanted him to be happy and be good and be safe and feel joy. But I’m really proud of him. To do it without a program, and to stick with it without a sober coach or AA or classes—I think it’s extraordinary. He is, in ways, a walking miracle.”
