Justin Bieber Opens On The Struggles Of Being A Child Star In “Lonely”
Justin Bieber has revealed that it’s lonely at the top and child stardom makes it even more vulnerable. Bieber 26 made the revelation in “Lonely,” his new music video collaboration with producer Benny Blanco, 32. The song was released Friday at midnight. The clip has already racked up over 2.3 million views on YouTube as of this morning.
The melancholy track, featuring Bieber’s vocals over the minimal piano accompaniment, stars 14-year-old Jacob Tremblay as a young Bieber, struggling with simultaneous success and isolation.
The clip starts with a shot of Jacob alone and staring at his reflection in a huge dressing room, before being called to and slowly making his way to the stage. “I’m so lonely,” Jacob mouths, along with Bieber, as the camera pans out to reveal a single person sitting and watching. The clip ends with a shot of a stone-faced adult Bieber watching.

“And everybody saw me sick, and it felt like no one gave a s **t. They criticized the things I did, as an idiot kid,” says the verse before launching into the pre-chorus. “What if you had it all but nobody to call? Maybe then you’d know me. Cause I’ve heard everything, but no one’s listening, and that’s just f **king lonely.”
“If you’re feeling lonely or know someone who is struggling, you can find resources and more at “ActiveMinds.org/Lonely,” offers the video’s caption.
