Can we talk about how low-key Justin Bieber’s been these days?
Of course, he still makes headlines. But the days when he was on every magazine cover are long gone.
It used to be that Justin (25) was always on people’s lips, whether he was making news for his music or for his rambunctious behavior. But now, we only see bits and pieces of what’s going on in his life.
Right on the heels of Bieber’s latest single, “Yummy,” comes a new docuseries from YouTube, “Seasons.” The series premiered on Monday and sheds light on what’s been up with Mr. Bieber.
Here are the top 3 revelations the series dives into.
Justin’s new single, “Yummy,” is the musical version of the PDA he and wife Hailey (23) typically rock in public. The lyrics are pretty much a full-on ode to Hailey’s hooha. The song slaps––but it might make you feel a little weird.
Still, the docuseries shows a lot of tender moments between the pair that will make even the most cynical spectator say, “Awwwww.”
The couple has been officially married since 2018 and held a ceremony in September 2019.
In the first episode, Justin says, “She makes everything better, you make everything better babe.”
Hailey also made a cute statement:
“I love watching him do what he is so good at, even if it means me laying on the couch until 3-4 in the morning binge-watching TV shows and just being around. I just enjoy the energy that goes into it.
“We turn it into a really fun process…people kind of just hang and I don’t know, I just feel at home wherever he is, so if he’s holed up in the studio that feels like home to me.”
Scooter Braun, the man who first discovered Bieber on YouTube in 2008, explains Bieber’s struggles quite well:
“No one has ever grown up in the history of humanity like Justin Bieber. No one has ever been that famous worldwide in an era of social media where every year of your adolescence you were the most googled person on the planet.”
It’s no surprise, then, that Bieber needed a serious break after releasing his last album, “Purpose,” in 2015. He even cancelled the “Purpose” tour in 2017.
“At the end, he was tired and said ‘Look, I need a break,’ and he took a very long break,” Scooter continues. “In that time he’s found his wife, he’s grown a lot. I don’t put any pressure on that timeline anymore. He’s earned the right to do it in his own time.”
This isn’t your typical documentary. New episodes air on Mondays and Wednesdays, but the final episodes have yet to be filmed. There are still cameras in Bieber’s house and studio tracking his every move.
Director Michael Ratner says, “It was important for me that we follow all the way to real-time, so you’ll see how [the documentary is] perceived in the world and how Justin reacts to having it out there.”
