Justin Bieber: I Almost Let “Fame Completely Destroy Me”


Justin Bieber is letting is all hang out on the eve on his new album Purpose. The international pop star confessed to Billboard that Fame almost destroyed him.”It might seem awesome from the outside, but I’m struggling… Certain things broke my trust with people… I felt like people were judging me all the time. I came out alive. I came out swinging. But I was close to letting [fame] completely destroy me.”

Justin is ready to move on from the past two years which manager Scooter Braun dubbed his ‘dark place.’ “Enough with the Justin Bieber Show. I want to veer away from the self-centered attitude. I’m just focused on the people who have been there since the start, on people who are taking the journey now. I want them to feel like we’re doing this together.”

He even warns against being a child star. “I want people to be more kind to young celebrities. Like Kylie [Jenner]. Look at her world: She has been living on TV since she was a kid. Every time she’s looking around she sees a camera, and that’s affecting how she’s thinking and how she’s perceiving people and why she has to do certain things … Situations that happen taint your mind, especially in this industry. Especially for girls.”

Bieber is working on his relationship with his mother, Pattie Mallette which he was was “pretty nonexisting, “for two years. “I was distant because I was ashamed. I never wanted my mom to be disappointed in me and I knew she was. We spent some time not talking, so it takes time to rebuild that trust. She’s living in Hawaii now, so it’s hard, but getting better. She’s an amazing woman and I love her.”

It’s not fame that’s bad…it’s big ego, bad friends, bold choices —and not in a good way that cause destruction!
