Justin Bieber had a hard time deal the the paternity scandal he was hit with last year. Bieber fan, Mariah Yeater claimed that he has impregnated her after a concert and wanted some DNA to prove he was the father. Bieber denied the claims but it was still difficult he tells UK’s Fabulous Magazine and he almost quit the music business.
“At the beginning of it all happening I was in Florida, away from my friends and family, and I was pretty sad. I got to the point where I thought: ‘I don’t want to do this. I just want to be normal.’
“Then I started thinking about all the things I wanted to accomplish in life and where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do. And it all led back to performing and the music. So that’s why I’m here.
“Since that day I’ve been pushing to be the best entertainer I can be. I was thinking, is it really worth being away from everyone all the time? Is it worth it if I’m not the best? Which is why I strive to be the best.”
How does he feel towards Yeater now it’s all over?
“Um, I really, um… She doesn’t take any of my energy. It doesn’t bother me. I feel sorry for her more than anything. Everything that hurts you makes you stronger in the end. You’ve just got to learn from the bad things that happen.
“It was difficult because I’d never gone through anything like that. Usher [his long time mentor] was like: ‘Prepare to have this for the rest of your career because it’s not going to stop.’ He’s gone through some stuff and most artists go through their fair share of bull. That was just my first time.”
