Justin Bieber lives a life of extremes.
Just hours before he was mobbed by fans at an event in Beverly Hills on Friday, the young singer cut a lonely figure as he wandered along Malibu Pier in California with a bodyguard.
Evidently in search of some alone time, Justin posted a snap on Instagram, captioned,
“Aren’t we all just searching for peace?”
In the pic, the 20-year-old wears a black- navy plaid shirt, a long white T-shirt and baggy denim jeans while standing against the pier.
The “Confident” singer kept his shock of newly-dyed platinum blonde hair hidden under a sports cap, while wearing rose-tinted glasses.
A sunset backdrop adds to the melancholy of the shot.
Was the Biebs contemplating the end of his romance with Selena Gomez?
Since their most recent split in October, the status of his relationship with the starlet has been speculated about by media and their respective fanbases.
Recent rumors attempted to romantically link the Canadian star to budding model Hailey Baldwin, after the longtime pals were seen hanging out together over the past two months.
Hailey subsequently publicly denied the pair were dating to E! On Monday, Justin took to his social media accounts to address the ridiculous noise.
Alongside a black and white selfie of the pair, he wrote, “People are crazy. I’m super single and this is my good friend u would know otherwise.”
Within hours of his Malibu break, the singer showed support for the social network app he has invested in by appearing at Shot’s “Toys For Selfies” Christmas event, which was held at H.O.M.E — the House of Music Entertainment — in Beverly Hills.

Before the drive kicked off, Shots co-founder John Shahidi posted an open invitation on social media. The event asked visitors to bring a toy to exchange for a selfie, in aid of at-risk children helped by the BlackNLA Foundation.
The Biebs’ hectic arrival to a gauntlet of paparazzi can be seen in the video below.
Once inside the event, Justin was mobbed by fans holding up smartphones to take selfies with the star.

No stranger to making a timely exit, Justin assumed the usual crouch and duck position as he left the mayhem.
“Aren’t we all just searching for peace?” Indeed.
