The Dark Season – Justin Bieber: Seasons

The Dark Season – Justin Bieber: Seasons

Justin:The first time
I smoked weed was in
my backyard here.
I got super stoned,and then I realized
I liked weed a lot.
That’s when my desire
to smoke weed started,
and then I started
smoking weed for a while.
And then I started getting
really dependent on it,
and that’s when I realized
that I had to stop.
I don’t think it’s bad.I just think for me,
it can be a dependency.
But, yeah, first time
I smoked weed, I was– I don’t suggest this,
but I was 13. Yeah, 13. 12 or 13.♪ Not sure what I was doing
before you ♪
♪ I quit trying
to figure it out ♪
Was there anything
that really concerned me? Um… Yeah, I think maybe, like– maybe the lean, when he was drinking that. Can I say that? There was a time
where I was sipping lean. I was popping pills,
I was doing molly, um, you know,
shrooms, everything. And it was just
an escape for me. I was just young, you know,
like everybody in the industry and people in the world
who experiment and do, you know, just normal growing up things.But my experience
was in front of cameras,
and I had a different level
of exposure and people.
And, like, I had a lot
of money and a lot of things,
so then you have all these
people around me
just kind of hanging on,
wanting stuff from me, knowing that, like,
I was living this lifestyle that they also wanted to live– drinking, smoking. I think when you take
somebody very, very young and they start to get horrible,
crazy, crippling anxiety, and it goes undiagnosed and you don’t know what it is
that you’re feeling, you start to self-medicate because it makes you
feel better, just helping you
not to feel anything. With all the success
that we’ve had, we’ve also had some
really turbulent times. ( crowd cheering )When he turned 18, it started
bubbling a little bit.
19 to, what was it, 21?That was probably
that dark period. Ryan:
We didn’t speak a lot
during some of the times
where he was running amok. You know, there were a few times
where I saw him, uh, and it just kind of
hurt my heart seeing him
the way he was, you know? So I think I just kind of
put a little distance with that for my own sake.It would just go without sayingthat my position on the path
he was going down–
but at the same time,
just letting him
live his life and learn and,I don’t know,
just do his thing.
I know that Justin knows
a good person from a– I don’t even know if anyone
was a bad person. It was just kids mostly. But, like, knows good from bad
and knows right from wrong. And he’s making
some wrong decisions, but I never really believed
that that person that the whole world
hated so much was who he is. Woman:Last week, the singer
was arrested in Miami
for allegedly drag racing,
driving under the influence,
and resisting arrest–
all misdemeanors.
Bieber’s attorneys pleaded
not guilty on Wednesday.
Justin:I started
valuing the wrong things
in this business
because there was things
dangling in front of me.
“If I get this, I’ll be happy. If I do this, I’ll be happy.” He’s gone through a lot
in a very short life. You don’t always agree
with someone’s decisions
in that moment. They’re young people making
very big decisions that affect
a lot of people. And sometimes in those
scenarios, you’re gonna make
the right decisions. Sometimes you’re gonna
make wrong. Justin:And these are thingsthat I think a lot of peoplewith secure householdslearn at a young age.I never had that security
in a family. I never had that consistency.I never had the reliability
and the accountability
and all these things
that make you understand the way the world works. I was a good kid, but I was still,
like, a shithead.I was bad in school.I was always a class clown.I never really respected
authority like that.
I was, like, a nice kid,but, like,
coaches didn’t really like me
because I was a bad
team player.
You know, looking back,
those things kind of shape
why you feel the way
you feel about yourself.
Like, I would feel like
I’m a bad person. His mother was a child
when she raised him.And she was in
a very conflicted
relationship with his dad.And so there
was chronic stress. The truth is
is I never had the tools. My parents never
gave me those tools to be a good team player. When you’re able
to take responsibility–
I know I did that and I know that did hurt people
because I did that,but I can look at that
and not have shame over it.
Justin and I were never
really in each other’s livesuntil he chose to get soberand was trying to come
off of the drugs
almost kind of himself. I decided to stop… because I felt like
I was, like– like, brah,
I was, like, dying. My security and stuff
were coming into the room at night to check my pulse. People don’t know
how serious it got. It was legit crazy scary. I was waking up in the morning
and the first thing I was doing is popping pills
and smoking a blunt and starting my day,
you know? So it just got scary. I basically said to myself, I’m like,
“God, if you’re real, you get me through this season of stopping
these pills and stuff, and if you do,
I’ll do the rest of the work.” And then I did that,
and then I was good from there, but I never did
the actual work. I got off the pills,
but I never went to the root
of everything. So then I just, like,
kind of circled back around,
which most people do. So I first met Justin
in September, 2014. He was a wreck. He had recently
stopped using drugs. He was anxious,
overwhelmed, not sleeping. Yeah. Mental health is so important
to get on top of. If you have ADHD,
if you have something that, uh, you don’t want to take medicine,
I strongly believe in it. It’s not the only answer,
but it can really help you, so that’s my advice to you. Anyways, this is the chamber. So what it does is it fills up
with oxygen and, um– I really– I’ve been struggling
with a lot of anxiety. And what it does is it
actually– you get more oxygen
to your brain, and so it– it, um, decreases your–
your stress levels. I think they’re pretty cool. Hailey:It help bring more
oxygen to your brain,
to your organs.We have one in our house. As you can see in the doc, there was one in the studio. People are gonna think
he’s a crazy person. People are gonna be like, “What is this
contraption machine?” That’s some,
like, rich people shit.” I don’t know. – How are you?
– I’m tired. I’m good. – Let me look at you.
– Can I, um, just address
the camera real quick? – Please. Go ahead.
– Okay, um, so I am here
in the doctor’s office. And what we are
about to do is, uh, the nurse is gonna put in an IV,
and it’s called NAD. Um, and basically
what it does is it is going to flush out
some of the toxins. Um, I’ve, uh– I’ve abused
my body in the past. And now I’m just
in recovery process trying to make sure
I’m taking care of my body and taking care of, uh,
the vessel that God’s given me. So here we go. You ready? This is Jose. He’s the best. Such a good guy. For people who used to have
a drug problem,when they get sober,
the pleasure centers
of their brain
don’t work the same.
So what NAD does is
it actually helps to repair
that part of the brain
and helps to repair
your pleasure centers
to balance them back out. So I’ve been struggling
with my, um, energy for quite some time now and I just haven’t known why. Uh, and it’s just– I realized, uh,
after a series of tests that I have what’s called
Lyme disease, which is
a super silent disease that’s not really, um,
very well-known. Um, doctors– it’s very hard
for doctors to test for it. Lyme disease is the fastest
growing bacterial infection in the United States
right now.And we know that it can cause
a whole spectrum
of neuropsychiatric symptoms. Mood changes, irritability, depression, anxiety. Justin fits the picture
of these symptoms. Epstein-Barr, which is mono,
uh, I have that, too. That in itself,
mono makes you really sick and it makes you feel
really tired. And some people can’t
get out of bed because of it. He saw a psychiatrist
in Los Angeles who diagnosed him
with bipolar disorder and gave him lithium without
ever looking at his brain. When I looked at his brain,
he wasn’t bipolar. Basically infections have, uh,
played a big part in my acne, um, and my, uh,
overall toxins in my body, which just creates
all this stuff. So it feels good now to know why I feel so crappy
all the time. He just felt so sick and there was no explanation
for what was going on. So now that we have
all the answers, and we know what it is,
and we know how to, um, alleviate it and fix it, you know,
I think he’s honestly not only healthier
than he’s ever been, but on the road to maintaining a healthier life
than he’s ever had,
which is awesome. How are you feeling today?
Better? Much better? I do. I feel–
Yeah, I feel a lot better.
Thank you for asking. Having got to know Justin, I know he’s got
a really good heart. And when he’s balanced, he does really amazing things
for other people. But it’s hard to do
amazing things for other people
when your brain’s not right. Justin:
Honestly, I’m committed
to getting better
and committed to doing
whatever I have to do
whether it’s
inconvenient or not,
because I know ultimately
it’s not only for me,
but being the best me is gonna
help me the best husband,
the best father,
the best friend
I can possibly be.
And for all the fans
that want to enjoy the music
that I make and stuff,
I can’t do it
if I’m not healthy,
and I haven’t been healthy
for a long time.
Thank you. You’re the best.
Thank you so much. You’ve helped me so much.
Thank you. – Hey.
– ( laughing ) – Hello.
– Hey! Hey! – See how that
revitalizes you?
– Yep. Hey, let’s go!There’s so many people
that have gifts
and an opportunity
to make a change,
and they end up
either losing it or, you know, um,
using their gifts for… selfish reasons. And, you know, I see so many
talented people just– almost like it feels like they’re wasting
something so precious. It’s up to us as individuals to use the gifts
that we’ve been given, you know, whatever it may be,
to contribute.In the song “Changes,”
it actually talks about, um,
how some days we want
to push further,
and some days we feel
like doing nothing.
And that often
comes with our mood
and our attitude
towards life, you know?
And sometimes
when life throws you things
that you can’t control, you know,
naturally your attitude
is to be upset or to be disappointed
or discouraged. But, you know,
when you fight through
those feelings that are– that are just feelings
at the end of the day, and choose to put
your effort into your work or into your– you know,
into your passion or into– you know,
you find that drive. But just being here
and forcing myself
to get out of bed, you know, it might not seem
that hard to some people to just get out of bed
in the morning, but it’s been really hard for me
to just get out of my bed. And I know a lot of people
feel that same way, so I just also want to say that you’re not alone
in that, you know? There’s people that are
going through it with you. Life is worth living. And if you’re
not gonna give up, then the only thing to do
is to push forward.♪ Sometimes I’ll go
to sleep early ♪
♪ Sometimes I can’t close
my eyes ♪
♪ Sometimes I smile like
it’s all good ♪
It feels good to share, man,
to be honest. It feels good. I haven’t, no.
I haven’t talked about
any of this. Not like this, ’cause I–
I don’t think I was ready. I don’t think
I was mature enough to even take responsibility and, like, really mean it.♪ I be going through changes ♪♪ I’m going through changes ♪♪ I’ve been going through ♪♪ I’m going through ♪

  1. When I went through that regarding using drugs and trying too much alcohol I started to understand why it was so hard for Justin to be under the eye of everyone. It’s easy to judge when you are not the one who is fighting inside battles in front of the eye of the press.
    I’m glad he wants to get better and hopefully he is able to do so every single day with everything in his life.

  2. Saludos desde Argentina Te Bancamos en Todas Te Kiero Un Monto 😍Me encantaría conocerte algún día ….segui así que siempre fuiste un ejemplo porque errores tenemos todos Te Amooo Justin Que seas Feliz Siempre ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  3. Well I have a whole new respect for Justin Bieber addressing mental health topics. This affects majority of Americans today many of whom don't even realize it

  4. This episode has come to me by chance at a low time & I'm so thankful it did. You've helped me so much today Justin, if you ever read this, thank you for sharing this with us all.
    'When you fight through those feelings (of disappointment, discouragement etc.) that are just feelings at the end of the day and you chose to put your effort into your work or into your passion and find that drive' & 'if you're not going to give up, the only thing to do is push forward' & 'I see so many talented people wasting something so precious'.

  5. Watching this especially towards the end really inspired me and gives me hope. I’ve been in recovery for addiction and actually have been facing similar health issues that they haven’t figured out what’s causing them. I’ve never been much of a JB fan but honestly have a lot more respect for him after seeing this. Proud of you and I know if you can make it through this so can I.

  6. Im so glad you got through all the bad stuff and found a good woman that brings out the best in you. Im glad you are doing so much better. Please keep taking care of yourself and be happy:) God bless you🙏

  7. By polar tha right but do what him do it like heart someone yeah the scky don't open because you wake up yes we understand you're past on you family don't tell you the truth of tha life

    I think he was just fine even as a kid . There are sooo many ppl not in the public eye that did much worse than him . And he even got better. A lot of “normal” people don’t get better …I think people were just salty cuz he was this super young white kid making hella money 💰… ppl need to just chill out . Imagine if ppl actually saw him as a kid at the time and weren’t so nasty . Imagine the world encouraged him more instead of shitting on him 24/7. It’s one thing when u are fucking with an adult , but with a child ?!? I think people weren’t just so cruel … but good job on getting better . That shows that you have a strong character.

  9. Justin have very luck of had hailey as wife she is perfect for him congratulatipns couple they are example of couple of true love true!!

  10. Eaii Justin você tem um coração bom cara, todo mundo fala, então me empresta 100 mil dólares aí estou precisando mesmo mano, jesus disse ao jovem rico dá toda sua fortuna aos pobre para herdar a vida eterna. É só 100 mil mano não é nada pra você, tô precisando mesmo. Rs

  11. Keep pushing forward young man, God loves you and life is worth living. A very important video. And his wife, she just seems so positive and supportive, Ihope he makes the most of that and uses it to evolve into the man he was intended to be. He's a special young man, I wish him well xx

  14. I respect you for doing this, admitting you need help and then getting help, it will help inspire so many people on different personal levels. Be proud, I hope you carry on the way your going and become the best you possible 💛

  15. for a while i got to the point where i didn’t like him as much as i used to because of all the bad decisions he was making and the way he was acting. now that i understand what was going on and why he was acting the way he was, it completely changes the way i look at him. i honestly never knew what was going on or how bad it was until i watched this video specifically, and now that i know all i can say is i’m so incredibly proud of him for working on himself and taking the steps he needs to stay sober. justin, i love you and i hope you keep doing what your doing cause i can tell it’s good and that it’s working. just remember you can do anything you put your mind to. keep your head up sweetheart, you got this ❤️

  16. It‘s so strong of you that you talk about your problems in puplicity❤️ You have a really big heart and a charakter made out of gold❤️Thank you that you are here Justin❤️Good luck for the future❤️Never give up and always be the same❤️

  17. Honestly Justin is so blessed that he has this amount of people that truly cares about him , that’s a big part of what got him through this so many people going through this with absolutely no one that’s when many feel like quitting . I hope whatever anyone’s going through you get through it , don’t give up your not alone God is with you ❤️a your not ,

  18. In my opinion your better off sticking with the weed over an antidepressant. Weed is natural. Pills aren't. But over all happy you're healthy.

  19. The title should of been "Justin"fied instead of Seasons. 🙄 You got all these peeps making excuses for you for acting like a little prick. Especially to Selena

  20. I know too well that feeling like you can’t get out of bed. It’s a struggle I’m working on and too many ppl experience the same. I respect and very happy to see Justin realize the changes He needed to make. Best Wishes for a continuous recovery and well balance.

  21. Hailey seems like she definitely has her head on straight and I am so happy for Justin that he has someone like that in his life to be there for him the way it seems like she is. It makes me really sad to know that Justin's been through so much. I've totally been there… Hell and back. But I've come out the other side and now I'm fighting for my dreams. And I really hope and wish the best for him. Rooting for you Justin and Hailey!

  22. Okay hailey Bieber is truly an angel. I used to love her for her looks but now I love her as a person. More hailey on youtube pls!! And biebs, always a fan!!

  23. After a life of giving SO much of yourself to the world…YOU DESERVE TO GO FIND YOUR HAPPINESS. You deserve to be healthy, loved and at peace, Justin. ❤❤❤❤❤

  24. I just would like to say that no matter how much fortune someone attains or has, you never know what they actually feel internally because we are quick to judge externally. Seeing the true side of Justin honestly makes me have more respect and more understanding of his hardships. Thanx Justin for sharing something so deep and personal.

  25. She always has that god dam phone in her hand
    It takes a few years to recover from addiction. Haley has she ever been a drug addict?

  26. ༻대한 ༒마미༺

    누구는 부러워하는 삶인듯 자기좋아하는일하고 그재능으로 돈벌고 근데 왜항상 불안할까? 돈이많아도 행복한건 아닌가보네 난 돈이 저리많다면 신날듯한데 다가져보니 인생이 재미가없는듯

  27. Stalker clown Baldwin @haileybieber needs to just stop. Allison over her playing along and praising h not only in jb seasons but here on ig smh y’all will look dumb with jb drops her and you all know it will happen. Didn’t Ali get h a shirt with mrs Bieber on it like a idiot, Never seen her wear it but smh she frr is a whole attention seeker always has to make the situation all about her she can never let jb shine she has issues, They r frr Milking jb for attention and money Allison ass praising h only cuz they don’t have to take care of jb like they can have assurance that h is there so nothin happens to him that’s only reason y they like her otherwise she’s irrelevant she even became BFF with jb staff And team and friends over the years so she can keep tabs on jb ass and she became friendly with sel friends church ppl jb team and friends. she frr was getting close to jb team just to get to him and act like, She cares for him cuz she knew he was vulnerable ect so she could swoop in and use jb and get his attention especially if she went to the church he goes too ect like her ass frr looks so stupid af always talkin about wifey and bs like that girl u a whole clown is what u r

  28. Hailey ass was shitting on paps and kept saying she wanted to wedding private but in reality the whole wedding was filmed and being recorded and posted thru social media and now documentary smh clout chaser gold digger, she stay wanting the attention, She even managed to make jb health and documentary all about her she’s pathetic

  29. And the fact that jb was abused by sel and bullied and no one say anything and how Hailey uses and trashed and bullied jb as well

  30. Jb confirmed h ass use to ask about him ect smh watch it she made friends with his friends and team to stalk him And no not just to check on him she checked on him for the wrong reasons she wanted him to be doing bad not good also if u remember the old times she was trashing him ect u can add that info to now this u can see she was obsessed and she stalked him and used his team ect

  31. Even after watching jb documentary ans his recent interview and seeing everything y’all frr think jailey marriage is happy and healthy ect like do y’all mf not see this bs he’s not happy with her my god ugh y can’t ppl see it

  32. I’m no Selena Gomez Stan but what about Hailey being obsessed with seltho it goes both ways did u not see her latest ig post and then not only that sel dead ass said she won’t release that song as she was in a different time in her life when she wrote that.. But dead ass wrote music/album constantly about jb and talked about him in interviews and dissed him thru media and then releases that same song she said she would release lol both Hailey Baldwin and Selena r the same in my opinion both r just obsessed. Like haileys ass stay shading and bullying ect and acting like she’s some saint and then goes around talkin about jb ever chance she gets like I see many similarities between Hailey and Selena honestly Like I don’t got the time to compare and contrast but if u do ur research on both girl u can see what I’m talkin about honestly they r manipulative and users and bully’s..

  33. If u think this is some happy marriage that will last forever lol cuz hun that won’t happen. This shit has been doomed since the beginning…..She’s a gold digger and she’s not supportive lol u can see how annoyed she is and how unstable she is as well she just shows a different Side on media like she’s some supportive amazing wife lol when in reality it’s nothing like that. She even manages to take credit for jb health getting better and she will manage to make everything that jb puts out about herself like jb documentary was based off of her ect. Like idk y y’all like her bully user ass. But anyways y’all should honestly analyze all these pics ect and both their facial expression and body language don’t like hun trust me dead ass knew he wasn’t ok before his ass said a single thing cuz I paid attention to him closely

  34. Unfortunately our society makes it seem like you have to pop a pill for every issue when for every big pHARMA med there are so many natural alternatives that work just as good without wrecking your system. The actually heal you,not just MAYBE take your symptoms away, but give you other problems

  35. Ani not Annie Blech

    This is so beautiful. I’m so happy Justin that you were able to overcome the challenges you faced as a result of your mental and physical health. The resources available to you allowed you to persevere and create one of the best albums you’ve ever made thus far. Now, I’m wondering if we could steer this conversation towards the discussion of “Medicare for All” because that is what America needs right now so that individuals like yourself can seek the help they need at affordable cost and low coverage to heal, grow and live life to its fullest .

  36. My daughter is 13 and I can't imagine her smoking weed or doing any drug at this age! I was 14 myself when it started and now that I'm a mother it's hard to see things how they were when I was a kid. Damn.

  37. I have always loved Justin for his work, his behavior and everything he does and I still do and I hope Justin continues to be a healthy man and I wish to see him do more better in his life and I'm really happy he found such a wonderful life partner.. God bless both of them and life a happy life .. 🙂

  38. The people who are here in this video knew everything he was taking and couldn't help him or try to stop him from using drugs so instead they went back and allow him to consume all those drugs until he got to the point where he need the help?!? Just like Demi Lovato until she almost died. Fake people in his circle.

  39. Literally I’ve struggled with the same stuff and this was inspiring. Thank you Justin. So much. Sincerely from the bottom of my heart. Love you always my doood☺️
