Justin Bieber has posted a very long account on Instagram of the effect fame has had on his life.
Sharing a note to his 118 million followers on Monday, the singer described his drug use and the "terrible decisions" it resulted in.
"I started doing pretty heavy drugs at 19 and abused all of my relationships," Bieber wrote. "I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry. I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind, a shell of the person that i had become. I felt like i could never turn it around.
"It's taken me years to bounce back from all of these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits. Luckily god blessed me with extraordinary people who love me for me."
