Justin Bieber has shared an image of himself praying alongside rap
moguls Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs and Kanye West during his Purpose tour
just days after he cancelled his meet-and-greet events with fans, saying
they’re great people but their “spiritual energy” makes him “drained
and unhappy.”
Bieber, the 22-year-old singer who is touring the
country, took to Instagram to reveal that he and the rap moguls spent
part of their time together to honor Jesus. “Uncle puff and Yeezy giving
thanks to Jesus,” Bieber wrote Friday
it seems Bieber has been struggling spiritually on the tour, which led
to his decision to cancel all of his scheduled meet-and-greet events
with fans.
u guys.. I’m going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting
such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with
so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and
unhappy …” Bieber wrote in an Instagram post
last week. “Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense
and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the
point of depression. … The pressure of meeting people’s expectations
of what I’m supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my
The Canadian crooner recently spoke about his relationship with God during a Feb. 11 interview with GQ magazine where
he said: “I feel like that’s why I have a relationship with Him,
because I need it. I suck by myself. Like, when I’m by myself and I feel
like I have nothing to lean on? Terrible. Terrible person.”
Although he admits to doing “stupid” things, the “Sorry” singer said his actions would be worse without God.
“If I was doing this on my own, I would constantly be doing things
that are, I mean, I still am doing things that are stupid, but … It just
gives me some sort of hope and something to grasp onto,” Bieber
continued. “A feeling of security, and a feeling of being wanted, and a
feeling of being desired, and I feel like we can only get so much of
that from a human.”
Bieber, who came into the public eye as a
global phenomenon at only 13 years old, and by 19 he was making
headlines for was previously blasted in headlines for allegedly
vandalising his neighbor’s property, smoking marijuana, using racial
slurs and drag racing.
But duing an interview with Complex magazine last year, the pop star said he’s now striving to be more like Jesus Christ.
just wanna honestly live like Jesus. Not be Jesus … I don’t want that
to come across weird. He created a pretty awesome template of how to
love people and how to be gracious and kind,” Bieber told Complex magazine.
“If you believe it, he died for our sins. Sometimes when I don’t feel
like doing something, but I know it’s right, I remember, I’m pretty sure
Jesus didn’t feel like going to the cross and dying so that we don’t
have to feel what we should have to feel.”
has developed close bonds with the likes of Pastor Carl Lentz of
Hillsong New York City and Pastor Judah Smith from The City Church in
Seattle, Washington, throughout the years, but there was once a time he
was a Christian uninterested in attending church.
leave such a bad taste in people’s mouths. I was like, ‘I’m not gonna go
to church.’ I had these church friends and I was like, ‘You guys are
cool, I like you guys, but I’m not going to church,'” Bieber said in a Complex 
magazine interview
published in October. “Then it was the same thing of, ‘Just because you
went to a weird church before doesn’t mean that this is weird.’ It
doesn’t make you a Christian just by going to church.”
“Like I
said, you don’t need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to
Taco Bell (fast food chain), that doesn’t make you a taco,” Bieber said.
“I think that going to church is fellowship, it’s relationship, it’s
what we’re here on the Earth to do, to have this connection that you
feel there’s no insecurities. I think that’s where we need to be.”
