Justin Bieber Taking A Step Back From Music To Repair 'Deep Rooted Issues'
Justin Bieber has announced to fans that he's 'emotionally unable' to give his music career 100 percent at the moment.
The singer -- whose last record, Purpose, came out in 2015 -- wrote on Instagram that he'd received "a lot of messages" from fans calling for new material to be released.
But the 25-year-old went on to explain the heavy toll that touring throughout his entire teenage life and his early 20s has taken on his mental health.
"I realised 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 wrote of his 2016/2017 Purpose world tour.
Bieber added that he's been working through a few different methods -- using "trial and error" to try and find the best way to manage his health.
"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," he said, referring to his future family with wife Hailey Baldwin.
Bieber added that although music was important, "nothing" comes before his family and his health.
"I will come with a kick ass album ASAP..." he promised fans.
Baldwin recently spoke out in an interview with Cosmopolitan about the intense scrutiny Bieber faces from "possessive fans".
“I’m like, you actually don’t know me," she said, referring to comments made about her marriage online.
"You don’t know him. You don’t know her, you don’t know these people for real. What’s really weird to me is they create scenarios in their head of what they think is happening or what they think should happen, and I’m just like, ‘This is just so dumb. It’s so dumb,’" she said.
