Ok in all honesty Justin Bieber’s performance tonight moved me… I am so happy for him and I’m so glad he’s back.
He grew up in the media spotlight. Everything he did/does is speculated and criticized. Did he make some stupid mistakes? Sure. Does every teenager? Yes. But we aren’t on news, every social media, TMZ headlines etc. I am 18 years old, and I couldn’t begin to imagine having my childhood/ teenage years taken from me in such a dramatic way. Same with 1D,5SOS, Disney stars, Jonas brothers ETC. I couldn’t imagine everything wrong I did being thrown in my face. I couldn’t do it after a while. It’s not fair to me, it’s not fair to you, and it’s not far to any celebrities. They’re human too.
I’m so happy for him that he took a step back, figured out whatever issues he was dealing with, grew up a bit, got his priories straight, found his true love in music again, and came back. His performance was so beautiful and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so excited to see what the future brings for him. I feel like today was so important at least for me, because it shows you can fuck up, you can make mistakes, you can get so low, but you can also be at the top again and be happy with yourself. Never give up even when things don’t look the best. Believe in yourself, and most importantly, follow your dreams and do what makes YOU happy.
Thanks, JB for showing me that again.
