Everyone knows that Justin Bieber is one of the biggest names in music and we all know about his struggles with mental health, and on Monday night, in a lengthy Instagram post, Bieber opened up about this topic as well as the impact of growing up as a child star.
"Have you noticed the statistics of child stars and the outcome of their life? There is an insane pressure and responsibility put on a child who's brain, emotions, frontal lobes (decision making) aren't developed yet," he wrote. In the post, Bieber acknowledges that being "rebellious" and "defiant" with no rationality is a part of young adult life that most people go through, "but when youadd the pressure of stardom, it does something to you that is quite unexplainable [sic]", especially if you haven't grown up in a stable home. He wrote, "I went from [being] a 13-year-old boy from a small town to being praised left and right by the world."
