Seriously. There are so many things I want to know about Justin Bieber. Like, what does he like to watch on tv? Does he even have time for tv? What is the coolest place he's visited? If he had to eat one thing for the rest of his life, what would it be? Really, I have so many questions. But, the biggest one of them all is, does Justin actually have friends? You know, like really deep connections in his life with people that he can always count on. And I'm not talking about his friendship with Pastor Carl Lentz, either. I'm talking friendships with people that are his own age. The only reason this has even crossed my mind is the fact that Justin has been alone a lot lately and it's kind of worrisome.
In recent weeks, the Biebs has been seen on social media decorating his Christmas tree...alone. A few months ago, Justin was in his hotel room incredibly bored just staring into an Instagram live video...alone. He played pranks on hotel guests all on Instagram live...alone. Of course, these are just bits and pieces of his world, but it makes you wonder what is really going on in his social life.
Back in 2015, Justin opened up in an interview about how sometimes people don't realize that artists, like himself, get lonely. He explained, "I just want people to see me as a normal dude. Like, I just come in here with my hoodie because I’m comfortable, and just chillin’, and not trying too hard. I just want to have a good time and show people that I’m normal."
He continued, "People would never guess that artists like myself would feel lonely, with all things that are always around us and people, but a lot of it is really surface-y, and there’s no depth to those relationships. So you just end up feeling like, well, I’m connecting but I’m not feeling what I want to feel. So, that’s where I ended up. I was just in a place of like searching because I felt like people weren’t what I needed them to be for me."
So, he has touched upon this before. I mean, again, I'm sure he has friends. He doesn't live on a desolate piece of land without no one and no communication around him. The Biebs is connected all of the time. But, I just want to know if he has true friends. A friend that he can just chill with, eat a whole pizza and gossip about girls in their life. That's what guys do, right? When you think about Justin's life, it's much different than that of, let's say, the One Direction boys. There was always five or four of them around each other on tour. When Justin goes on tour, yeah he has his dancers and crew but I highly doubt it was the same experience as what the 1D boys had.
Justin just always seems like he's alone. (Hi, I'll be your friend. I love pizza.) Like Jaden Smith, where you at? These two used to hang out with each other and we haven't seen much of that. Or how about all of Justin's Canadian friends? They made a cameo in his Never Say Never movie, but haven't seen them either. Okay, also, what about Ed Sheeran and Niall Horan? Both of these dudes always talk so highly of the Biebs but where are they during down time?! It seems like Selena Gomez has been his only friend lately, between getting breakfast together (V normal friend activity), riding bikes and going to church together, they have been active in each other's lives.
The "Sorry" singer has really been focused on getting his life together. It seems like he's been trying to be a better person, not only for Selena but for himself. He posted a photo on social media of his 'Daily Goals' trying to be generous to others, facing fears, eating healthy meals and giving up bad habits. It looks like hanging out with friends didn't make the list.
