Pressures of child stardom led me to drug use and abusing relationships - Justin Bieber

Canadian singer, Justin Bieber has revealed how his child stardom led him to heavy drug use and “abusing relationships” where he was angry. 

Canadian singer Justin Bieber says he was hit with the pressures of child stardom.
The 25-year-old pop star penned a scathing account of the treatment of child stars, saying the pressures of stardom are too much for young kids to face. 

Bieber says he skyrocketed to fame as a child while living in an unstable home dealing with his parents separation.

I didn’t grow up in a stable home, my parents were 18 separated, with no money, still young and rebellious as well, he wrote on Instagram.
My whole world was flipped on its head. I went from a 13 year old boy from a small town to being praised left and right by the world with millions saying how much they loved me and how great I was.
You hear these things enough as a young boy and you actually start believing it. Rationality comes with age and so does your decision making process. Everyone did everything for me so I never learnt the fundamentals of responsibility.

Bieber admitted that by 18 years old he had “no skills in the real world” but “millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted”.

By 20, I made every bad decision you could have thought of and went from one of the most loved and adored people in the world to one of the most ridiculed, judged and hated …
He wrote that he empathised with many touring musicians who struggled with drug abuse, “I believe its due to not being able to manage the huge ups and downs that come with being an entertainer.”

He admitted to doing “heavy drugs at 19” and abusing relationships.
I became resentful, disrespectful to women and angry. I became distant to everyone who loved me and I was hiding behind a shell of a person I had become.

The entertainer said it has taken years to recover from “terrible decisions”. He says his marriage has taught him humility, patience, trust, commitment and kindness … “all the things it looks like to be a good man.”

Bieber wrote he hoped his fans would read his message and urged those who felt the odds were against them to keep fighting to improve their lives.
