Justin Bieber, a Canadian singer, has provided a deeper insight into his earlier struggles with drug and fame, ahead of the official release of ‘Changes,’ his forthcoming album.


Bieber had previously broken silence about his drug addiction in an Instagram post he dropped in September 2019. 

But in the final episode of ‘The Dark Season,’ his YouTube documentary series titled, released on Monday, the award-winning songwriter shed more light into several aspects of his previous life, including drug addiction.

Like in the previous four episodes, the ‘Yummy’ crooner examined his early rise to fame and how such took a toll on his lifestyle in the fifth episode of the documentary.


The gifted music star also explained his struggles after quitting drugs and how he was eventually forced to stop it when he almost died.

“It was just an escape for me. I was young, like everybody in the industry, or in the world, who experiment,” he said.

“But my experience was in front of cameras and I had a different level of exposure. I had a lot of money and a lot of things, so then you have all these people around me hanging on and wanting stuff from me, knowing I was living this lifestyle that they also wanted to live.


“I decided to stop because… I was like, dying. My security were coming into the room at night to check my pulse. People don’t know how serious it got. It was legit crazy-scary.”


The Canadian singer, who was diagnosed with Lyme disease last year, went on to reveal how he has been able to move on from his past.

He also expressed hope he would recover from his illness in no distant time while he works on “recovering” his body which has been abused before.

“I’ve abused my body in the past and now I’m just in the recovery process,” he said.

“I’m committed to getting better because I know ultimately being the best me is going to help me be the best husband, the best father, the best friend I can possibly be. And for all the fans that want to enjoy the music that I make. I can’t do it if I’m not healthy, and I haven’t been healthy for a long time.”


Bieber is set to release ‘Changes,’ his fifth album on February 14 — after a prolonged hiatus from the music scene.

On Monday, the singer made a terse post further reminding fans of his much-anticipated project.

“10 days,” he wrote on Twitter.
