Do not ask Justin Bieber when he’s returning to the studio to drop another album. He doesn’t know. Bieber and Hailey Baldwin got secret-married in September and marriage has been going super-well for them, but as People has been reporting for a few weeks, marriage has led him to ask big questions about what to do next with his life. The answer has yet to reveal itself to him, according to sources who spoke to People, which reports that Bieber is “happy and content” and “in love with Hailey,” who “encourages him to do whatever he wants to do.”
Whatever that is, it’s not music—at least, for now. There are more important things to do, like making out, enjoying leisure activities, being religious, and not speaking out on the greatest burrito-related internet controversy of our time. (Seriously, how has he not said anything?)
Music can wait. An unnamed insider tells People, “It actually bugs him when people ask when he’s going back to the studio or on tour. He has worked for years, and the first time he takes a significant break, everyone’s all, ‘When’s he coming back?’ To Justin, those aren’t just questions — those are demands. For years, everyone has tried to take a piece of him. Just let him be.”
Bieber, the source says, is looking for his... purpose... in life:
“He’s thinking, ‘Hey, maybe it’s not music. Maybe there are other things I should be doing.’ So while he’s figuring it out, the last thing he needs is people asking him when he’s going back into the studio,” says the source.
Best of luck to him on his interpersonal journey.
