Justin Bieber sat down with Apple Music's Zane Lowe recently for a wide-ranging interview about his new album Changes and returning to the spotlight after his musical hiatus.
During the chat, which will air Saturday (Feb. 15), the superstar opened up about how his surprise appearance at Ariana's Grande's headlining Coachella set in 2019 helped him overcome his fears about returning to music. "It gave me kind of a boost of confidence and reminded me because it'd been so long since I'd been on stage," he said. "Just kind of reminded me...Oh, this is what I do. This is what I'm good at.
"And I don't need to run away from it. I was running away. I think a lot of us need to take that when something's hard. It's almost like we need to run towards the pain and run towards the hurt rather than run away from it. I think you get kind of healing when it comes to that.”
