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.

    He was never even an “idiot kid.” Adults are responsible for kids’ actions. Adults tend to blame everything on kids and hurt them. No child deserves that. I’m not a huge fan of Justin or anything, but clearly, he is one pure & strong soul.

    I guess it was his personal choice to be the public figure. You knew what it takes then why people cry about it. Being stuck and followed by paparazzi or depressed as they have enjoyed their life and now they are tired.

    Dear Justin, I can't get through out if this shit. I am addicted to loneliness and I might become mad one-day. I'm lucky if I would die soon.

    We get it, you’re lonely. So are millions of other Americans, that don’t have millions of dollars. It’s always the people with everything and the easiest lives that want to complain and whine.

    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

    Wow. Song resonates. Strangely enough, Global News featured a segment about loneliness interpreted by a Dr. who conducted MRI s on lonely brains..as if there is such a thing. Kudos to you for performing the song as well as video. It struck a chord.🌞

    Everybody knows my name now But somethin' 'bout it still feels strange Like lookin' in a mirror, tryna steady yourself And seein' somebody else And everything is not the same now It feels like all our lives have changed Maybe when I'm older, it'll all calm down But it's killin' me now 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 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
