Justin Bieber opened up about the struggles of being a young pop star and his past drug use, saying in a new interview that his bodyguards would sneak into his room at night and check his pulse to make sure he was still alive.
“There was a sense of still yearning for more. It was like I had all this success and it was still like: I’m still sad, and I’m still in pain. And I still have these unresolved issues. And I thought all the success was going to make everything good. And so for me, the drugs were a numbing agent to just continue to get through," he told GQ magazine.
As Bieber struggled, he had a few brushes with the law and displayed some erratic behavior. The "Sorry" singer, 27, told GQ that there are people in the industry who "prey" on others' insecurities and that made him angry.
