Justin Bieber Feels He Isn’t Allowed to be a Normal Person
Justin Bieber shared that he is a very emotional person, but feels he isn’t allowed to be one because he is constantly under the public eye
Justin Bieber is one of the biggest celebrities in the world. Whether he’s making new music, taking a break from it, or going through a rough patch in his life, the star has always managed to make headlines. Last year, he also tied the knot with model Hailey Baldwin and finally returned with a new album this year. He will also be touring the US and Canada and has released a documentary that sheds light on his life in the past few years, especially his battle with substance abuse. He has recently also admitted that he is very emotional and would like to behave like any normal person, however, he feels he isn’t really allowed to do that while being in the public eye, reported Contact Music.
Fans of the star were concerned about him in 2018 when photos emerged of Justin in tears were all over social media. He recalled that he was just feeling emotional that day and said that he was being a ''normal person and crying''. He explained, “When I'm in the media and I look at things on the internet and people are like, 'Justin's upset, why is he upset?' It's like, they don't permit me to be upset. I don't have permission to be, you know, human and shed tears. There are so many people every day who are in a conversation with their girl or their wife or their mom and they break down, you know? But they don't have cameras capturing it. So people are like, 'Is he OK, is he having a mental breakdown?' And I'm just emotional, and that's OK.''

Justin also admitted that sometimes, he feels very overwhelmed and frustrated. Recalling another instance back in 2018, when he looked quite vulnerable when he was spotted on a day out with Hailey, he added, “I remember just struggling. I remember feeling, like, emotionally, just overwhelmed and talking to her, not knowing how to communicate certain things and just feeling kind of, like, frustrated. 'You know, there has been a lot of things that have happened in my life and, um, I think this was a point in my life where I was just like, so overwhelmed.”
On the other hand, Hailey believes that all such feelings and emotions are a part of life for anyone – and that anyone can have good or bad days. She had earlier said, “There's always going to be good days and bad days, if you work a nine-to-five job or if you're Justin. It doesn't really matter who you are, everybody's going to have days where they feel crappy and they don't feel like pushing through that day but it is a part of life.”
Hailey, herself, once shared that there is constantly a pressure to have to keep up a perfect lifestyle – especially when you’re in the limelight. She had shared, “I admire people coming forward and talking about anxiety. We all struggle with it. I think there's been this stigma around it for so long. People look at celebrities who are famous or successful and think they have it all together. Like, they have such an insane career, or they make so much money, that they should be happy. But it's really kind of the opposite. 'There was a time in the industry when it was negative to talk about that kind of stuff. Nobody wanted to talk about what was really happening, and everybody felt like there was this pressure to keep up a facade - or pressure to keep up this perfect lifestyle and make everything look really good from the outside. Everyone would say, 'Oh, we're really happy. I'm really happy. I'm doing fine,' when really it was like you're kind of crumbling on the inside.”
