The curtain is about to be fully pulled back on Justin Bieber’s life.
“No one’s ever grown up in the history of humanity like Justin Bieber,” said Bieber’s career-long manager Scooter Braun.
That’s a bold, but possibly accurate, statement.
The 25-year-old popstar is revealing it all on his new YouTube docuseries, Justin Bieber: Seasons.
The 10-part series, premiering Jan. 27, promises an intimate look at all aspects of Bieber’s tumultuous growth journey, including a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of his latest music and his newlywed life with Hailey Baldwin Bieber.
“As humans we go through so many ups and downs, so many good seasons and bad seasons, sometimes we want to give up,” Bieber said in the recently released trailer.
For a period of time leading up to his 2017 career hiatus, the bad seasons seemed to outweigh the good in a flurry of bad press. In 2011, a fan named Mariah Yeater accused him of being the father of her three-month-old baby; a paternity test later disproved this and the lawsuit was dropped. In 2012, he was pulled over by the police for speeding to escape paparazzi. In 2013, things get a little worse: Teen Vogue summarizes it best in their 2015 article “The Rise and Fall (And Rise) of Justin Bieber.”
He announces on Twitter that he is retiring on Christmas Eve. He backtracks, but not before causing fury among all the reporters forced to write about a 19-year-old’s retirement on a holiday. He assaults a tour manager and is accused by a radio host of spitting in her Gatorade. He’s spotted by TMZ smoking marijuana, graffiti-ing in Rio de Janeiro, touring London in a gas mask, peeing in a bucket while ranting about Bill Clinton, and being carried up the Great Wall of China by bodyguards. He’s caught trying to sneak a pet monkey into Germany. And, worst of all, he visits the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and writes, in the museum’s guestbook, that he thinks she would have been a Belieber.
The rough early-teens of the 2000s all culminated in 2017, when he cancelled the remainder of his “Purpose” world tour to focus on his “soul and well-being,” according to Braun.
That moment is exactly where the Seasons series picks up.
“He’s taken a very long break and in that time, he’s found his wife, he’s grown a lot, and he’s ready to express himself through music again,” Braun said.
Certainly a big part of Bieber’s season of growth has been his faith, which has taken front and center of his public life more than ever in recent months. He regularly shares guided prayers on IGTV from his LA-based church, Churchome, and his social media is filled with messages of faith.
“I hope a lot of people see this and overcome their obstacles!! God has huge plans for every single one of you,” he wrote of the upcoming series.
The docuseries comes after the release of his latest single, “Yummy,” and is just the start of a very Bieber-filled 2020. The singer plans to release his highly anticipated fifth studio album this year and head out on tour.
As for what we can expect from Bieber 5.0, Seasons promises to show us just how much the popstar has truly grown.
