Justin Bieber has become famed for many achievements, as well as a few less glorious moments that seem inevitable in the life of a celebrity pop idol growing up in the public spotlight. But now Justin is revealing a new side of himself for Beliebers. And it has to do with what has become a fad: Adult coloring books, reported the Wrap.
Revealing his new “Purpose,” Bieber shared a finished example from a sexy adult coloring book on Instagram. The woman flaunts a headband with more feathers than the material in her skimpy attire, while licking an object.
Justin earned points among his followers for staying inside the coloring book lines. Despite that, Bieber modestly pleaded with his fans not to judge him while giving props to himself for sitting still long enough to finish.
“I colored this its dope Cuz I actually sat down for 30 min and finished I never can sit still for that long so it’s an accomplishment, yes this took me 30 minutes haha. I know I suck Don’t judge me.”
However, the praise ranged from “you colored it great” to “that’s really good” from his Beliebers.
As for the pride he displayed in showcasing his ability to sit still, Justin was candid about his struggle with ADHD in a GQ interview.
“I’m getting restless. I take Adderall, too,” he told the interviewer, referring to a stimulant often used as a treatment for ADHD.
Bieber also revealed that he had been taking the medication for about a year but also struggled with anxiety.
“I’m not getting restful sleep, so during the day I need [Adderall] to concentrate,” he added.
An art therapist told Broadly that the art of coloring may help Justin ease that anxiety.
Nadia Jenefsky, director of child and family services at New York Creative Art Therapists, specializes in psychotherapy and creative arts therapies, and she described the way in which a coloring book can help with relaxing.
“The drawing is already there, so you don’t have the anxiety of the blank page and you also kind of already know that its going to look kind of pretty when its done and also you don’t have to make many decisions,” pointed out the expert. “When we think of art therapy and structure, we think about something that is supportive, that guides you.”
And for those with ADHD, the repetition of drawing in a coloring book can help with the restlessness, according to the specialist.
But there’s more to Bieber than coloring books, of course. His Purpose world tour runs through the end of the year, and Justin incorporates everything from an enormous trampoline to wild costumes to skateboarding dancers, noted the Los Angeles Times.
With songs both old and new, Bieber is enchanting audiences. His renditions of “Purpose” and “Sorry” seem to sum up and wash away what has happened in the past, including a blast of fake rain serving as the perfect symbolism.
And while Justin scores musically on his tour and artistically in his own way, Bieber also is finding time for the women in his life. After being linked to Hailey Baldwin, both Justin and Hailey emphasized that they are not in an exclusive relationship, as the Inquisitr reported.
And that leaves the romance door open for both Kourtney Kardashian, the 36-year-old mom of three and star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and his off-again on-again girlfriend Selena Gomez.
When it comes to Kourtney, Bieber and Kardashian have been hooking up for several months, according to People‘s source.
“They have hooked up a few times, including recently. It happens in L.A.,” revealed the source. “He has met her kids, but they don’t hook up around the kids. It’s on nights when she has help and is able to go out.”
As for what appeals to Bieber about the reality TV star? Justin likes that she’s older, attractive and doesn’t cling to him, explained the insider.
“Kourtney is great. Justin thinks it’s cool that she is older and hot. She isn’t clingy and has her own life. There are no bad consequences for Justin to hook up with her. She is very easy going and just makes it fun for him to be around her.”
In addition to Kardashian, Bieber is staying in touch with Selena via texting and talking.
Gomez recently appeared topless in GQ, and Justin promptly let her know just how impressed he felt, according to Hollywood Life‘s source.
“Justin saw the GQ photos of Selena and is in awe of how sexy and beautiful she looks,” revealed the insider. “He reached out to congratulate her and tell her that she’s never looked better.”
As for how their relationship is, the source also revealed that Justin and Gomez are still fond of each other.
“They still talk on a regular basis, but when they are too busy, they stay in touch with texts to check up on each other. There is still a lot of love and tenderness there.”
