Being one of the most recognised, followed and idolised people in the world has its pros and cons. And at the moment, Justin Bieber seems to be seeing more cons than pros. In an Instagram story update, the 26-year-old Canadian singer slammed those waiting outside his home to catch a glimpse of him. His words (maybe unintentionally) made him seem like a rare, exotic animal that is being watched as he said to those outside his home:
“How do you convince yourself it’s not completely inappropriate and disrespectful to wait outside my home to gawk, stare and take pictures as I walk into my apartment?”
Although he did not clarify if those outside his LA home were fans or the paparazzi (probably a mix of both?), Bieber has the right to be worried. After all, he is human and he’s had this fair share of scary trespassers and plots against him. Heck, in 2013, two men (an uncle and his nephew) were arrested after their plot to kill and castrate the ‘Baby’ singer was revealed. Not only that, over the years, multiple individuals (mostly obsessed fans) have tried to gain entry into the singers home.
Meanwhile, Justin has released his new single, ‘Lonely’ alongside Grammy-nominated producer Benny Blanco. In an Instagram post from earlier this week, Jacob Tremblay (the 14-year-old talented actor from “Room”, who won a Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Young Performer for his role) is seen dressed in Bieber’s signature purple hoodie and sports his fellow Canadian’s iconic side-swished hair from his early days on the scene. Both Tremblay and Blanco – who has previously worked with Bieber on “Love Yourself” – shared the same image on their Instagram profiles.
Following the drop of his is the fifth studio album ‘Changes’ in February this year, ‘Lonely’ will be the second single the 26-year-old Ontario native releases this year. The haunting song tells Bieber’s story as a young boy growing up in the limelight. His first single, ‘Holy’ featuring Chance the Rapper blew up the minute it dropped, earning the duo a debut at No.3 on the Billboard Hot 100. With ‘Holy’ centring around love, relationships, and faith, we can only wonder what story we’ll learn about Bieber from ‘Lonely’ on. After all, ‘Holy’ gave us a pretty intimidate an inside look into Bieber’s personal feelings by tying his faith, marriage to Hailey Bieber, and love for others together.
