Justin Bieber’s got dreadlocks and We The People Say Hell Nawl To The Nawl Nawl Nawl! ???
Biebs posted several pictures of his new style — but the fans were less than encouraging.
“What happened to your hair darling,” one fan asked.
Another commented, “U sure that weed from California not a bad batch? Like u good?”
Some have even accused him of cultural appropriation.
Earlier this month, he revealed that his bodyguards would sneak into his room at night and check his pulse to make sure he was still alive when his drug addiction was at its peak.
There was a sense of still yearning for more. It was like I had all this success and it was still like: I’m still sad, and I’m still in pain. And I still have these unresolved issues. And I thought all the success was going to make everything good. And so for me, the drugs were a numbing agent to just continue to get through,” he told GQ magazine.
Justin Bieber‘s crossed a line with his new album, “Justice,” and he’s getting called out for it — turns out mixing pop love songs with snippets of Martin Luther King Jr. speeches was not a great idea.
JB dropped the album Thursday night, and the first voice you hear on it isn’t his … it’s MLK saying, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Powerful and true words … no one’s questioning that, but it’s the fact the speech is used to introduce the love song, “2 Much” that’s pissing off a lot of people
Twitter’s teeing off on Justin for the “tone deaf” use of MLK, because, despite its title, the album isn’t about social justice. It’s filled with Bieber’s signature pop ballads and dance tunes — and they’re pretty good — but MLK Jr. has NO connection to them.
There’s even a nearly 2 minute “MLK Interlude” track in the middle of the record, which leads into a song called “Die For You.” If you’re thinking there’s a tie-in because of MLK’s assassination … nope! It’s just an upbeat diddy about a hot chick.
While no one’s gonna question Justin’s chops in pop music, he’s way off the mark here as a historian.
Justin Bieber has been through really hard times but the singer is willing to be vulnerable and speak about it publicly. According to Variety, during a playback of his album at Village Recorders in Los Angeles, the star got really emotional while opening up about his struggle with severe depression.
Furthermore, the teary eyed singer stressed that being part of the music industry only caused him to fall deeper and deeper into this dark place in his life.
Justin even said something really scary in relation to his suicidal thoughts: ‘I don’t even think I should be alive, never mind thrive.’
As you can see for yourself, the preview not only gave his fans a sneak peek into his upcoming new album but also gave them a look into his personal feelings and struggle with depression, something he’s dealt with since entering adulthood.
The outlet reports that the performer started to cry while confessing that he had been ‘hurt by the industry’ as well as ‘the people’ that are part of it.
Justin did not name anyone specifically but did stress that being in the music industry made him unsure who to trust.
Nowadays, however, it sounds like he’s doing much better and Justin credited his faith in God with helping him.
‘There’s power in weakness. [My art is] a reflection of that … thank you for loving me at my worst,’ Variety also reports he said while still fighting his tears.
He also made sure to thank his wife, Hailey Baldwin for being there for him and helping a lot as well.
‘I love you with all my heart … and I’m so proud of us,’ he told the model.
After his little crying session he said that ‘I gotta get it together’ before adding: ‘I’m going to go shoot myself.’
Justin Bieber is making his return to SNL during the RuPaul-hosted episode of the long-running sketch show.
As per an announcement on Tuesday (January 21), the pop titan will serve as musical guest, while the RuPaul’s Drag Race superstar makes his debut as host of the February 8 episode of the NBC broadcast. Previously, Bieber appeared as musical guest in 2010 and took on double duty as host and performer in 2013. He also made a cameo on the 100th SNL Digital Short in 2012.
Back in 2018, SNL alums Jay Pharaoh and Bill Hader spoke about one of his appearances on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, admitting that the pop star was “in a bad place” during filming. “Maybe he’s in a better place, but back then he was in a very … it was rough,” Hader said of the singer. “Everybody’s usually on great behavior…. Bieber is the only one in my experience … he just seemed like exhausted or just at the end of a rope. I mean, he was just so huge.”
Additionally, the network announced that NFL star J.J. Watt and Luke Combs will serve up entertainment on the February 1 episode.
