HollywoodLife.com consulted with a leading life coach and psychotherapist who believe Justin Bieber’s new song about the girl who claimed he fathered her child could become a smash hit and will, at the very least, be healing for the Biebs!
When Mariah Yeater came out with a media blitz claiming Justin Bieber was the father of her infant son, he must have felt stripped of all power. Even though there was no truth to the story, the 18-year-old pop star was forced to defend himself — and it even took a toll on his relationship with Selena Gomez. Now, months later, Justin has written a song about Mariah that will be on his upcoming album, Believe, which two experts think will act as a healing agent for him.
“Justin’s song about Mariah Yeater could be a good song,” Christy Whitman, Life Coach and NY Times best-selling author tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Think about Michael Jackson and ‘Billie Jean.’ Fans like to feel like they have inside info on stars. Because his fans know about the situation, and he has even commented on it letting them in a bit more, they will for sure want to hear the song. I think it will be greatly anticipated.”
Additionally, from Justin’s stand point, it might be his way of regaining control of a situation that plagued him out of nowhere.
“Clearly, the girl who claimed Justin Bieber fathered her child has left a big emotional impact a him,” Rebecca Grado, MFT intuitive psychotherapist, speaker, and New York Times best-selling author tells us. “It’s certainly understandable. When someone makes false accusations about you, it’s not only infuriating, but disempowering. My guess is that as a Christian, Justin’s morals are very important to him, so having them called into question is extremely upsetting.”
That said, after this single, Grado thinks Justin should focus his efforts on moving forward, instead of looking in his past.
“The problem is that the more he focuses on this situation, the more he keeps it alive, in his mind and in the minds of his fans,” she says, explaining. “He also maintains a connection to her, giving her exactly what she wanted, his attention. There is an expression that says, ‘Where your thoughts go your energy flows,’ and the more he feeds this drama with his energy, the more it will rule his life.”
