Justin Bieber Chose To Remain Celibate For Over A Year Until Marriage: "God Blessed Me With Hailey As A Result"

In an interview, the couple revealed that they waited till they officially got married before they could jump into bed together.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are finally officially married l as they make their first appearance as husband and wife on the cover of Vogue magazine. The newlyweds looked madly in love on the cover of the March edition. This was their first official photoshoot together as a married couple that was shot by Annie Leibovitz. The 22-year-old model sported a classic, cream-colored Prada dress with beaded design work, boasting a bare face, stud earrings by Tiffany & Co. and had her hair flowing down her back while she made sure to show off her engagement ring. The 24-year-old pop star, on the other hand, stripped down and dressed in nothing but a pair of dark Dior shorts and white sneakers, showing off the tattoos covering his body. After the shot, the couple gave their first interview as a married couple and revealed so much about their relationship. They claim that their relationship is passionate, not always easy but is filled with love and romance. 

The couple legally tied the knot back in September last year, but they have not yet had a traditional marriage ceremony. The legal marriage took place in a courthouse in New York City just two months after the couple announced that they were engaged. The couple also revealed that they waited until marriage to have sex. According to Justin, this was done for religious purposes. He said, “[God] doesn’t ask us not to have sex for him because he wants rules and stuff,” He further added, “He’s like, ‘I’m trying to protect you from hurt and pain.’ I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that."



 

“I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul,” Bieber adds. “And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior.” The pop star even admitted that he wasn't absolutely proud about who he had become in the past. He mentioned that he feels as though he became very arrogant and cocky and let the fame and the love from all the fans get to his head. He claims that he lost his way and in order to bridge the gap between the way he was raised and the person he had become (or the way he started to behave) he abused Xanax. 



 

“I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed,” the pop star admits. “My mom always said to treat women with respect. For me, that was always in my head while I was doing it, so I could never enjoy it. Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark.” A few years back, Justin Bieber was caught in the middle of a lot of controversy for things like drag racing and leaving his pet monkey back in Germany and what not. He went from the kid everyone loved to a bad boy that most of his fans did not approve of. In fact, he didn't approve of that side of himself either.



 

This was the pop star's first lengthy interview in two years. The last time he was part of a lengthy interview was just after his fourth studio album purpose was dropped. The interview took place around the time when he went on tour for the album, a tour that was dedicated to showing people that his bad behavior was behind him. “I got really depressed on tour,” he recalls. “I haven’t talked about this, and I’m still processing so much stuff that I haven’t talked about. I was lonely. I needed some time.”

During the interview, Justin even opened up about himself and his feelings a lot more than he ever has. “It’s been so hard for me to trust people,” he explains. “I’ve struggled with the feeling that people are using me or aren’t really there for me, and that writers are looking to get something out of me and then use it against me. One of the big things for me is trusting myself. I’ve made some bad decisions personally and in relationships. Those mistakes have affected my confidence in my judgment. It’s been difficult for me even to trust Hailey.” He turns to her. “We’ve been working through stuff. And it’s great, right?”

The couple first met back in 2009 but that wasn't a very exciting meeting, they were just kids back then. Hailey's father and Justin's mother, however, really connected and remain friends till this day. The couple also dated three years ago, but things did not end very well. They admit that they still need to talk about a few things that happened in the past but are very happy with the way things are now. “Fizzled would not be the right word—it was more like a very dramatic excommunication. There was a period where if I walked into a room, he would walk out,” said Hailey.

They then ran into each other again during a conference in June 2018. The conference was hosted by Rich Wilkerson Jr., the pastor of Vous Church, who officiated at the marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. “The common denominator, I promise you, is always church. By then we were past the drama. I just gave him a hug. By the end of the conference, he was like, ‘We’re not going to be friends.’ I was like, ‘We’re not?’ ” Within a month, Justin asked Hailey to marry him and the rest is history. 

Towards the end of the interview, Hailey spoke a little bit about how the relationship is going and where they see themselves in the future. She said, “I want people to know that. We’re coming from a really genuine place. But we’re two young people who are learning as we go. I’m not going to sit here and lie and say it’s all a magical fantasy. It’s always going to be hard. It’s a choice. You don’t feel it every single day. You don’t wake up every day saying, ‘I’m absolutely so in love and you are perfect.’ That’s not what being married is. But there’s something beautiful about it anyway—about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone. We’re really young, and that’s a scary aspect. We’re going to change a lot. But we’re committed to growing together and supporting each other in those changes. That’s how I look at it. At the end of the day, too, he’s my best friend. I never get sick of him.”
