Justin Bieber is opening up about his past relationship and how he learned to become a better partner to wife Hailey Baldwin Bieber.
In an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe released over the weekend, the singer said he warned Hailey in the beginning that he wasn’t ready for commitment.
“I was like, ‘I’m not in a place to be faithful,’ and all this sort of stuff that I wanted to be, but I just wasn’t there yet,’” he said.
He admitted he was “wild” and “reckless” in his “previous relationship.” Though he doesn’t name Selena Gomez, he had briefly rekindled his romance with her in 2017 before getting together with his now wife in 2018.
“In my previous relationship, I went off and just went crazy and went wild, just was being reckless,” he said. “This time, I took the time to really build myself and focus on me and try to make the right decisions and all that sort of stuff. And yeah, I got better.”
Bieber said he eventually realized Hailey was the one after seeing her "nurturing" side as she was holding a baby. The couple married in September 2018 and his new album "Changes" was largely inspired by their relationship. On Tuesday, Bieber released a new visual for his song "E.T.A." exclusively on Apple Music.
According to Billboard, "Changes" is on track for a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200.
