“Music is very important to me but nothing comes before my family and my health,” said the ‘Baby’ hitmaker in a Instagram post last Tuesday.
After months of silence, Justin Bieber finally addressed why he has chosen to take a break from creating music since his last work in July of 2018.
On Tuesday, the 25-year-old hitmaker took to Instagram to share the reason behind his sudden hiatus. “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,” he began, referring to the latter part of his ‘Purpose’ Tour, which he later cancelled “due to unforeseen circumstances”.
Having just tied the knot with his wife, model Hailey Baldwin, last July, Justin said that he has decided to focus on his personal life this time around – beginning with facing his ‘deep-rooted’ issues so he could be the husband and father he has always aspired to be. “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,” he added.
Justin, who hails from Canada, shot to Hollywood fame when he was as young as 15 years old and has since monopolized charts with his multiple hits, including ‘Baby’, ‘Sorry’, ‘Love Yourself’, and ‘What Do You Mean?’.
Through the course of his career, Justin has released a total of four successful studio albums, three of which had its corresponding sold-out concert tours. To date, his last work remains to be ‘No Brainer’ – a collaboration with rappers DJ Khaled, Chance the Rapper, and Quavo – following his smash hit ‘Despacito’ with Puerto Rican singers Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee in 2017.
