Justin Bieber and benny blanco - The Making of lonely | Vevo Footnotes
"They presented the song to me, and to be honest, it was hard to listen to considering how tough it was to to get through some of those chapters." That Justin Bieber recounting what it was like to hear the first sketches of "lonely," which was co-written by benny blanco and Finneas. Accounting for some of the personal road bumps a performer in the spotlight must traverse to get to the top of the entertainment biz, the track and its video cut deep into Bieber's emotions and personal narrative. Our latest episode of 'Footnotes' speaks with the songwriter, director and singer to reveal an impressive portrait of how the vid was made and what it means to Justin. Learn more about the child actor who plays him, and how we can all use our Superman capes as tissues once in awhile.

  • Admittedly, I used to be one of those assholes who hated Justin because he was so young and living a life most people would kill to have. But throughout the past few years, my perspective made a complete 180. I had no idea how rough his life was behind the scenes. And with that, I apologize for being one of those guys so many years ago. I wish Justin the best of luck moving forward

Maybe then, you'd know me 'Cause I've had everything But no one's listening And that's just fuckin' lonely I'm so lonely Lonely Everybody knows my past now Like my house was always made of glass And maybe that's the price you pay For the money and fame at an early age And everybody saw me sick And it felt like no one gave a shit They criticized the things I did As an idiot kid What if you had it all But nobody to call? Maybe then, you'd know me 'Cause I've had everything But no one's listening And that's just fuckin' lonely I'm so lonely Lonely I'm so lonely Lonely

  • Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (Matthew 7:15-20 [KJV])

Sometimes Many people will think I have mad even you But I have nothing to do for it. In spite of global pandemic some people enjoy very freely but you're so different from those people. I think you are a responsible citizen in your country. Maybe you will see my comment. I know so many people send happyness comments for your songs but I'm going to send you a different one. I hope this message will make happy for you. Finally I am going to thanking you for sharing your feelings with others .God bless you!

Sorry I do not know much about this guy. But i get from a 3 minute song that he had some struggles growing up. There will always be real people and fake and I'm sure he encountered both. Justin seems to of had big shoes to fill at such an early age. Much love to ya brother. Artist like you are put here for a reason. Loved the Wurlitzer piano!!
