Justin Bieber might be regretting his comments from yesterday.
Once you say something on the internet, there is no escape from the criticism that you may face. That can be said for journalists, celebrities, and anybody really. With social media, literally anything can go viral so you should think twice about what you post for your followers to consume. When Justin Bieber was listening to Eminem's Kamikaze album yesterday, he decided to offer an honest critique of "The Ringer," saying that he likes Em's bars but not the way he sees new rappers. The backlash has been real with many telling Bieber that he's not exactly the most appropriate person to speak on hip-hop. While he didn't necessarily say that he's going through it because of the criticism he's faced for the Em comments, he did acknowledge that his anxiety was particularly bad today.
The pop star posted a photo of himself with an emotional caption, reading: "Don’t stop fighting the battle has already won.. fight for what you love and who you love don’t let fear and anxiety win." The singer, who regularly attends church sessions in Los Angeles according to Page Six, continued with a prayer before admitting that he's "crippled with anxiety."
Justin Bieber has been very vocal about his struggles with mental health, including anxiety and depression. The 25-year-old recently married his longtime girlfriend Hailey Baldwin and many suggested his relationship could be causing the personal turmoil. While he doesn't outwardly say that the Eminem situation caused any extra anxiety, the timing lines up almost perfectly.
