NEWS: Justin Bieber Praises God for Helping Him Be a Better Person

Justin Bieber thanked God for helping him grow as a person after
going through a dark period where he rebelled against the world while
being scrutinized in the public eye.
The 22-year-old Canadian
crooner won the Male Artist of the Year award at the iHeartRadio Awards
in California April 3. There, he reflected about some of the tumultuous

That’s kind of a cool little slogan I’ve been living by.”
However, he has publicly recognized that God has made him a better person.
“I feel like that’s why I have a relationship with Him, because I need it. I suck by myself,” he said in a GQ magazine interview.  “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.
I was doing this on my own, I would constantly be doing things that
