Justin Bieber has revealed the story behind the now-famous paparazzi photos of him crying next to wife Hailey Baldwin.
In the latest episode of his YouTube documentary “Justin Bieber: Seasons,” the “Intentions” crooner explained of the headline-making 2018 photos that he was “overwhelmed” and being soothed by Baldwin.
“I remember just struggling,” he recalled as he held up a photo. “I remember feeling, like, emotionally just overwhelmed and talking to her, not knowing how to communicate certain things and just feeling kind of frustrated. There has been a lot of things that have happened in my life and this was a point in my life where I was just like, so overwhelmed … being a normal person and crying.”
The 25-year-old pop star felt the world’s reaction to the photos meant he wasn’t allowed to show emotions.
“When I look at things on the internet and people are like, ‘Justin’s upset, why is he upset?’ It’s like, they don’t give me permission to be upset,” he continued. ” … People are like, ‘Is he OK, is he having a mental breakdown?’ and I’m just emotional and, you know, I think that’s OK.”
One such emotional day occurred when he was filming the music video for “Yummy,” the lead single off his latest album. While filming, Bieber is seen lying down on the floor.
“I was in my head a lot and it’s hard for me to really enjoy it like that, but I know that some days are just gonna be like that,” he recalled.
To help get him through, Bieber called upon his health coach, Dr. Buzz Mingin, who helps him with a stress-management technique called “Havening.”
“Havening is a psychosensory technique that actually raises the feel-good chemicals in your brain on demand,” Mingin explained as Bieber rubbed his head and face.
Baldwin added, “It’s basically like a self-soothing thing. Everybody has their own version of Havening without knowing it. It’s like when you’re a little kid and you suck your thumb to soothe yourself.”
