Justin Bieber got emotional during an interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe about his new album Changes. Fellow singer Billie Eilish came up in conversation, and Bieber started tearing up when talking about his desire to “protect” her from all the things he went through while growing up in the public eye as a child star, reports TMZ.
Bieber has made headlines multiples times over the years for everything from lawsuits to arrests to relationship drama. He has also admitted to struggling with substance abuse.
According to him, he wants to keep Eilish safe from experiencing the same mistakes and scrutiny that he endured. He expressed that he would be “just a phone call away” if Eilish ever needed him.
Eilish saw the interview and shared the snippet referring to her on her Instagram alongside several throwback photos of herself, including a bedroom adorned with several posters of the “Yummy” singer, revealing that she was a huge “Belieber” when she was younger. She told her followers to stream his new album, Changes, in the caption.
“Love you!!!” wrote Bieber in the comments section. His wife, Hailey, also responded with a heart emoji.
