Justin Bieber is taking a break from music to focus on ‘repairing’ his many issues

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin pick up food before a therapy session

Justin Bieber is going through some stuff. For months now, he’s been very open about his process – he’s been going through therapy, he’s been taking a lot of time away from music and that lifestyle. He’s spending a lot of time with his new wife Hailey Baldwin, and they’ve been going to therapy together. I think Justin has sought a mix of mental health options: he’s doing talk therapy, he’s trying more Eastern spa/holistic medicine type options, and he’s also getting counseling from religious peeps. All in all, Justin is trying to do the work to make himself a mentally healthy person. And that means he doesn’t have a lot of time to work on music. He posted this to his Instagram last night:

So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. 👑 but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).

“…So that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be…” Are we getting a pregnancy announcement? Or is he speaking as someone who looks forward to fatherhood further down the line? I don’t know. What I will say is that… I don’t hate that Justin is making his marriage a priority right now. Like, I think there are problems with the idea of “I want to get better for Hailey,” because I believe that he should want to get better for himself. But I think he feels that way too – he’s doing all this because he’s learning to make his own mental health a priority AND to be better for Hailey.

Here’s a photo of Hailey this week, out and about with Justin’s mother. Look at the way Hailey is touching her stomach… what do you think, peeps? I think Baby Bieber might be happening.

    He doesn’t seem happy in this marriage. I think he thought marrying her would make him happy but it hasn’t. Hopefully they don’t have a child until he’s mentally and emotionally ready.

    • Melly says:

      I think I disagree. He seems like he’s becoming a better person since marrying her. Married Bieber is a lot less annoying.

  2. Mary says:

    yup, i believe it.

  3. BaronSamedi says:

    He should have started dealing with his issues before he saw the tattoo artist…

    Honestly I see a better future for the Bieber Baby than most of the Kardashian Offspring. With a father who is openly working on his mental health it is already so much better off…

  4. minx says:

    Yeah, sounds like a baby is on the way.

  5. Erinn says:

    You know what? I kind of like adult Biebs. I can’t imagine what a little jerk I’d have been if I had his money at his age, and parents that didn’t care. I think he probably has a LOT to unpack mentally, and I wish him the best.

    I read the statement yesterday and assumed she must be pregnant already. Otherwise, he just is talking in a generalized way because they WANT a family at some point.

    But the important thing is that he’s actively TRYING to help himself. He’s aware he’s a mess. He’s aware touring wasn’t making him happy. He’s aware that he needs to really work on getting things right in his life, and he seems like he’s willing to put that work in – which is great.

    • Mary says:

      As Dr Phil says, you can’t change what you don’t acknowledge. Hopefully is on the path to building a better life for himself.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Yeah, I admit I’m slightly impressed with him admitting he wasn’t at his best at the last tour. That is a surprisingly mature reflection on his part and considering how big Hollywood egos tend to be. For his sake, I hope he gets it together. Whether his marriage survives, I’m not sure, but he seems to be making the right decision putting his health before success.

  6. tuille says:

    Idk about expecting. Her hand appears to be higher than is usual for the pregger belly hold.

  7. Zip says:

    I don’t think she is pregnant, women touch their stomach all the time. He’s most likely just talking about becoming a father at some point. I get the impression that he would love to have a family and kids as he adores his little siblings.

    It’s a good thing that he is making himself a priority now after being exploited by so many people since he was a child.

  8. Lucy says:

    Sure. I believe him. And I, too, read this as a pre-baby announcement.

  9. Perplexed says:

    Dammit, once again, I like Hailey’s outfit.

    • minx says:

      Same! Like the outfit, earrings, her skin and hair are beautiful.

      • Mary says:

        I like that she is fresh faced, wears little no make up on a daily basis and hasnt injected herself with plastic. That is actually refreshing compared to most girls her age go the Kylie Jenner route.

        Hailey won’t regret staying natural when she begins to age more gracefully than her freaky looking peers.

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, I don’t get it. It seems like when she gets it right, she looks amazing. But when she doesn’t she looks AWFUL. No middle ground with her, I guess.

  10. Steff says:

    He needs to get rid of all the hangers on and “yes” people around him and deal with his issues with a unbiased trained mental health professional. He likely won’t do that though.

    • LivePlantsCleanAir says:

      what on earth makes you say he’s unlikely to get rid of the hangers on and yes people? What on earth suggests he is working with a biased, untrained mental health worker is is NOT professional? He is clearly working towards a healthy brain, healthy heart and his soul. Only One is perfect; we are all just doing our best to get things right, are we not?

  11. Dani says:

    Maybe she has an upset stomach or heartburn. I do that when my stomach hurts.

  12. mosi says:

    I honestly wish him well ( I’m really surprised about it) but he seems to honestly work on himself. I think though, it would’ve been better, if he found some unknown (not a model, insta or anything) girl from his church, and settle. Hailey looooves the attention this relationship brought her and they just seem at completely different stages of their lives.

  13. Ellie says:

    She looks nauseous AF, just look at her facial expression.

    • Mary says:

      Thats the look of “morning sickness” or all-day 24/7 sickness in my personal experience….i recognize that look on her face and grasping the tummy from the first trimester for SURE!

  14. Valerie says:

    I don’t like him, but I have no doubt he has a lot of issues to work out. Fame came for him quickly and he was so young. Regular adolescence fucks with your head; imagine having to live it out in the public eye while being labelled a sex symbol? Add piles of money to the equation and it gets even messier.

  15. Neners says:

    I wish him well. Seriously. I will never knock someone for recognizing that they’re struggling and seeking help for it. Whatever or whoever has helped him to reach this point of getting whatever help he needs, be it Hailey, someone else, or just time and growing up, I can only see it as a good thing.

  16. Ange says:

    I applaud him for wanting to work on his issues, I just wish they’d put off the baby making until they’re sure they’re out of the woods. Every kid deserves the best possible start in life and money alone doesn’t do it.
