Justin Bieber didn’t hold back while talking about his past relationship with Selena Gomez in a new interview with ‘Complex.’ Speaking candidly, the pop singer admited the two used to ‘fight so hard’ because they were ‘way too’ invested in each other: ‘I would loose my freakin’ mind.’
Justin Bieber, 21, had it bad for Selena Gomez, 23, so much so in fact that he couldn’t help but loose his mind over their tumultuous relationship. Covering Complex magazine’s October issue, the 21-year-old pop star reveals just how good and bad things got while he and Selena were dating, admitting, “we would fight so hard.”
“I moved in with my girlfriend when I was 18. Started my own life with her,” Justin explained to Complex . “It was a marriage kind of thing. Living with a girl, it was just too much at that age. When stuff would happen, I would lose my freakin’ mind, and she would lose her mind, and we would fight so hard because we were so invested in each other.”
In fact, it was the constant fighting that ultimately led to the couple’s demise, as it eventually became too much for either to handle. Still, Justin admits that despite all of the nasty fights, he did learn a lot from the romance. “We were so in love. Nothing else mattered,” he explains. “We were all about each other. But when it’s like that and you get your value from that, people will always disappoint you. Your girl or your dude, they’re always going to disappoint you. Your full identity can’t be in that person. My identity was in her. Her identity was in me.”
Wow. Is it just us, or is that not a very mature statement for the Biebs to make? Color us impressed! It also just goes to prove how much the “What Do U Mean?” singer has grown over the past year. It’s no secret that he’s been working hard to change his bad boy image, a topic that he was more than willing to own up to while speaking to Complex. “I’m not going to say I’m sorry for the things that I’ve done because I think that it allows me to tell a story,” said Justin. But he added, “I forgot what I was about, what my mom raised me to be. I veered off, and I got tainted… I got into a little bit of trouble — nothing that other 20-year-olds don’t get into — just rebelling a little bit. Now, being 21, I’m coming into my own and around some pretty cool people who are not afraid to tell me what’s real.”
