Justin Bieber has announced he plans to take a break from music.
He posted a photo on Instagram on Monday night wearing his clothing line Drew with a caption explaining to his fans they shouldn’t expect a new album at the moment.
He said he has performed his whole young life, and fans probably noticed how unhappy he was during the last tour.
“I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that,” he wrote. “You pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour.”
He added that music is incredibly important to him, but nothing comes before his family and health.
“I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do,” he wrote. “I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be.”
Bieber promised he will be back with new music, and it will be “kick ass” because his “drive is indescribable.”
“The top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so,” he wrote, with a crown emoji. “But I will come with a vengeance believe that.”

So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album .. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour. I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. ???? but I will come with a vengeance believe that.. (grammar and punctuation will be terrible pretend it’s a text where u just don’t care).
It was just earlier this month that Bieber opened up about his struggle with depression in another Instagram post. He said he had been “struggling a lot” and hoped his story would resonate with his 106 million followers.
“Just feeling super disconnected and weird,” he wrote. “I always bounce back so I’m not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for you guys to pray for me.”

In response to the latest post, Bieber’s wife Hailey Bieber said “love you so much it hurts!!!” and many other people, including friend and manager Scooter Braun, showed their support.
Hailey Bieber has been candid about her mental health in recent months. In January, she opened up about her anxiety on her Instagram page, and shared a long post which explained how she is human and often compares herself to other people.
“I’m fragile, I’m hurting, I have fears, I have doubts, I have anxiety, I get sad, I get angry,” she wrote.
“I have had more days than I can count where I’ve found myself scrolling through Instagram comparing myself, comparing my looks, feeling like I’m not good enough feeling like I lack so many things and really struggling to be confident in who I am because I constantly feel like I’m just not good enough.”
This month, she told People that mental health should be the number one priority, but “it falls to the side a lot.”

“Just wanted to put this out there and say that your fans are here to love and support you always @justinbieber,” one wrote on Twitter. “We know how much music means to you; but we know your health comes first. Please continue to take care of yourself, and we’ll be here no matter what.”
