“In my previous relationship I went off and just went crazy and went wild, just was being reckless,” Bieber told Lowe.
Bieber didn’t elaborate on what exactly his “reckless” behavior entailed, but did share that he did things differently with Baldwin, taking the time to “build myself and focus on me, and try to make the right decisions.” And he’s not the only one who’s done talking about the past.
In January, Gomez told NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro that her 2019 single "Lose You to Love Me” served as a goodbye to her relationship with Bieber and that she didn’t want to spend the “rest of my life talking about this.” Gomez also alleged that she was a victim of emotional abuse by Bieber, but maintains that the song isn’t a sign of any hate, or ill will.
“It's a song that is saying — I had something beautiful and I would never deny that it wasn't that. It was very difficult and I'm happy it's over,” Gomez explained. “And I felt like this was a great way to just say, you know, it's done, and I understand that, and I respect that, and now here I am stepping into a whole other chapter.”
