Justin Bieber needs your thoughts and prayers, but mostly just your prayers, because what good are thoughts if they’re not #blessed? Justin’s not doing so great lately, despite having recently become a happily married man. On Instagram, Justin posted that he’s been “struggling a lot” and “just feeling super disconnected and weird”, which I think a lot of us just call “M-F and Most Weekends”. But who is Justin Bieber if he’s not having a spiritual crisis? Just an extraordinarily wealthy young dude with an unfortunate haircut, I’m afraid. So for Justin, the only way to weather this storm is through vigorous piety and prayer. And the way you can tell how good you are at it, is by how hard you squeeze your eyes shut.
Good news, guys: Justin is really good at praying. Just not as good as Kanye.
This is a cursed image if I’ve ever seen one. I think the look on Pac’s face says it all. We learned in Justin and Hailey Bieber’s recent Vogue spread that he has had a number a struggles in his past which he was able to pray away. But according to Us Weekly, Justin has also sought professional help outside of church for handling his twin addictions; sex and Xanax.
Last month, a source told Us Weekly that Bieber is “going to several doctors” as he deals with personal struggles. The insider clarified that he’s “not in rehab.”
The source added: “He sees a therapist, but he’s not in a special center or anything. He doesn’t want to be dependent on medication. He struggles with ups and downs, anxiety, depression and uncertainty about the future.”
It probably helps that he’s been working hard, designing the Hillsong cum City Church cum Church Om cult-wear.
That’s Justin’s old Hillsong pastor/spiritual guru Carl Lentz (aka Culty Carl), and Justin’s current pastor Judah Smith of Church Om (nee City Church, a “Hillsong Family Church”), both decked out in Drew, Justin’s label.
And in case you’re wondering what advice pastor Judah has for dealing with “feeling super disconnected and weird” (lay term: depression), you’re in luck. It’s as easy as spooning Jesus.
Justin, Jesus and Hailey are legit #thrupplegoals
