Justin Bieber Reveals He Was 'Really, Really Suicidal' At His Lowest Point
Justin Bieber has candidly discussed his mental health struggles in a revealing new YouTube documentary called Justin Bieber: Next Chapter.
Opening up about a particularly low point in his life, the Canadian singer revealed that he battled depression and suicidal thoughts as a result of being thrust into the limelight from a young age.
"I think that there was times where I was really, really suicidal," the pop star revealed. "Like, really like, 'Man, is this pain ever gonna go away?'
"It was so consistent, the pain was so consistent. I was just suffering, so I (was) just like, 'Man, I would rather not feel this than feel this.'"
During the documentary, Bieber admits he wasn't prepared for his gargantuan fame that came at the age of 16 when he released his debut hit 'Baby'.
"I just had no idea what was to come. I had no idea that this life would take me by storm. I had no idea that I would just get sucked up by all of this stuff," he said.

"There was so many people who were just so mean, random people saying, 'You suck. You look like a girl.'
"I would shake it off and act like it didn't bother me, but that stuff bothered me and then it affected how I acted and how I treated people and then it's just this ongoing cycle of, like, 'hurt people hurt people'."
Bieber, who married married Hailey Baldwin in 2018, now says he is in the 'best place' of his life right now, crediting his faith in God for overcoming his demons.
"I'm the most fulfilled, I feel the most stable, I feel the most secure, I feel the most confident, I feel so just at peace," he said.
"For the first time in my life, I don't feel like I'm striving. I feel like I know who God has called me to be. I am where I'm supposed to be, I'm walking in the plans of God, and the assurance of that is amazing."
