Justin Bieber, who is 24 and not a person who eats his burritos sideways, is dogged by the feeling that “something is missing” from his young life, some inexplicable absence which prevents him from experiencing full happiness. Bieber, who wed 21-year-old Hailey Baldwin (without a prenuptial agreement) back in September, has been in therapy to root out the source of his discontentment. A source says:
“He feels something is missing from his life that can’t be bought. It’s a missing feeling of happiness,” the insider explained. “He is very much grateful for his amazing life and especially for Hailey. It’s difficult for him that he can’t just enjoy everything and feel happy. He has been in treatment for this before.”
The Biebs is currently on a bit of a professional break, taking time away from working on music to dote on his new wife, a decision which Hailey supports. The source is also careful to clarify that Hailey remains a bright spot in Bieber’s life, despite his general malaise. Wouldn’t it be more concerning if he were not experiencing some sort of light depression/existential dread regarding his life or like the general state of the earth at this point? He’s also been famous since he was a zygote, so hopefully the personal time does him well.
On Saturday, Iggy Azalea, formerly signed to Island Records, announced via Twitter that she was now an independent artist, having parted ways with the label. Azealia Banks, who’s spoken previously on her issues with the Aussie rapper’s cultural appropriation and general lack of talent, wasted no time gloating, basking in the glow of Iggy’s presumed failure. Banks tweeted: “Can we all give Azealia Banks a round of applause for completely ruining whatever plan Iggy Azalea had to succeed while having stole my name?” Iggy fired back in a series of now-deleted tweets, including one where she demanded Banks “Shut the fuck up” and called her “crusty.” She later disparaged Banks’s line of soaps, her latest and most consistent entrepreneurial endeavor. Banks sank her teeth in, insisting that Iggy’s life was “going to get worse and worse.” This is Iggy’s second label departure, following her split from Def Jam earlier this year. I have also heard from a source that Azealia’s soaps are “nice?” [Daily Mail]
