He might have one of the largest Twitter fan followings, much more so than Lady Gaga. But for the first time in his entire life, Justin Bieber has openly admitted that he isn’t happy.
A few days shy of the official release of his “Believe Acoustic” album, the 18-year-old pop sensation expressed his feelings about his split with longtime girlfriend, Selena Gomez. In fact, Justin was very open about doing so, especially when he tweeted the following:
In the exclusive interview with the latest issue of “Billboard” magazine, he admitted to being in some form of post-split pain:
There are so many rumours. People say I call Selena every day and she won’t pick up the phone or I’m chasing her down, and these are all fake stories. I’m not in the happiest place that I’ve ever been. I’m trying to get through what I’m going through. I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going. I don’t have any regrets. I live and learn. My mom says, “You got to learn the hard way, don’t you?”. That’s me. I learn the hard way. But it’s about how I pick myself up and be better and stronger.
And in the interest of proving that Justin is trying to be better and stronger, “Billboard” has also unveiled a very heartfelt (read: heartbroken-sounding) bonus track titled “Nothing Like Us” off Justin’s “Believe Acoustic” album:

If you listened closely, Justin sings:
Lately I’ve been thinking, thinking about what we had,
I know it was hard, it was all that we knew.
Have you been drinking, to take all the pain away?
I wish that I could give you what you deserve,
Cause nothing can ever, ever replace you.
Nothing can make me feel like you do.
You know there’s no one, I can relate to.
I know we won’t find a love that’s so true.
There’s nothing like us,
There’s nothing like you and me,
Together through the storm.
There’s nothing like us,
There’s nothing like you and me together.
I gave you everything babe,
Well, everything I had to give.
Girl, why would you push me away?
Lost in confusion, like an illusion.
You know I’m used to making your day.
But that is the past now, we didn’t last now,
I guess that this is meant to be ,
Tell me, was it worth it? We were so perfect.
Aww, doesn’t he sound like the ordinary everyday teenager who’s dealing with a breakup now? Our hearts aches with his. Your fans love you! Stay afloat, Justin.
Meanwhile, we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy of the “Believe Acoustic” album, which will contain eight reworked tracks from his platinum-selling 2012 album, “Believe”, on top of three new songs. The three new songs are all written or co-written by Justin himself. Yes, one of which is none other than the abovementioned, “Nothing Like Us”.
