From the 16 year old teenager that he was, the evolution of Justine Bieber after the release of his first album ‘Baby’ is unfathomable! Despite being a fresh face he conquered the hearts of many right from the inception of his career as a singer. Managing to hold on to the highest pedestals of success, his journey towards being the man that he is now is remarkable and hence can’t be shunned away. Let’s have a sneak peek at the evolution of Justin Bieber from ‘Baby’ till ‘Anyone’.
No matter how hard you try to neglect the idea, its a universally accepted truth that his transformation from a newbie during his teen days hitherto is a wild one. Most of his fans unanimously agreed to the fact that he has changed a lot over these years which is primarily evident through his recent works as well as his love affairs.
The glaring wounds of a traumatic past
The scuffle experienced by Bieber in constructing his own identity and carving a space of his own in the highly demanding field of Hollywood music is massive and matchless. Born in a rural community north of Toronto, Canada, this small-town boy was thrown into the spotlight in his teenage years.
The sudden, unexpected deracination from his comfort zone to the public sphere took its toll on Bieber, and as his fame increased, so did his mental and emotional struggle. In his case fame and mental stability went towards an inversely proportional direction from every angle. His broken relationship with his own family, DUI charges for erratic behavior in his exotic cars, and his dating life was under scrutiny, ultimately leading to the demise of his very public relationship with Selena Gomez, which made his life extremely miserable.
The trauma doesn’t end here. The substance abuse and the augmented adherence towards drugs also challenged him, keeping a traction of his personal life during his rise to superstardom and successful musical career.
The new- face, the changed Bieber
His marriage to Hailey Baldwin can be considered as a monumental event in rebuilding the fragmented and distorted identity of Bieber. Her bonding with Hailey truly helped him in anchoring his stability and longevity. The eternal bond between Bieber and Hailey in turn re installed his faith in the ultimate positive soul, the God almighty. As a result of this rebirth he even came up with a personal documentary special event on YouTube Originals titled “Justin Bieber: Next Chapter”. This new personal documentary by the singer chronicled his life in lock down and his personal growth in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic.
Proclaiming his faith in God he released yet another solo song “Holy,” capturing the powerful influence that religion has had on his life. Throwing himself into his religion inspired Bieber to become a better man. His heavily faith-inspired music has been a re-birth of sorts, recreating his image and redeeming him to his fans.
Almost all his songs released recently carry the undertones of faith, love, and inspiration. Now that he is grounded to his own feet, transformed into a complete being, there is no looking back to those burning days of the past. A remarkable journey from the corrupted ‘Baby’ to the pious ‘Holy’!
