What exactly drives young stars into a spiral downfall? Is it the exposure to alcohol and drugs, the pressure of the job, the desire to be the best? Really, just about anything can and usually more than one thing effects a star. This is seen through the young artist, Justin Bieber. Bieber’s career first kicked off when he was around 12 years old and was discovered by Scooter Braun for being a hit sensation on the social site, YouTube. After meeting Scooter, Bieber was then introduced to one of his idols, Usher. Through both of these famous men, Bieber was able to kick off his career as a singer and soon found himself touring the world and having hit singles on the radio. One of Bieber’s most famous videos is his Chris Brown “With You” Audio. Through his success, he also had the pleasure of meeting famous actress and singer, Selena Gomez. The two began dating and eventually were in a very serious relationship. They were even considered the “it” couple at one point.One growing website was the“Jelena” Fan Page. Thousands of fans were referring to them as “Jelena” and saying that the two were going to get married. Justin seemed like he had the world in his hands. Unfortunately, this world spiraled downward a few months later.

Selena prospered from the break up, creating new hit singles and making her career even more successful. This however, was not the case for Justin. His temper tantrums were worst than ever before. He would walk off stage in the middle of shows and break the law in multiple ways such as driving under the influence or being seen with escorts.Justin’s Lash out at the paparazzi is one of the most famous stories from his troubled time. The worst part of it all was that Justin could care less about his appearance.

He had been so destroyed by the world of fame and power he no longer was even able to recognize himself in the mirror. He had drifted so far away from who he wanted to be he worried if the young, energized, ambitious man that he once was was even still inside of him. Justin knew it was time to go into recovery.
