Mobile phones are just one of those things literally everyone has, right? Well… maybe not.
Turns out global pop superstar Justin Bieber doesn’t have a mobile phone at all, and just uses an iPad to keep in touch with his team.
In an interview with Billboard, he revealed that he got rid of his phone because he doesn’t want to be easily contactable.
“I definitely learned how to have boundaries, and I just don’t feel like I owe anybody anything,” he said. “That has helped me to be able to just say no and just be firm in it and know that my heart [wants] to help people, but I can’t do everything. I want to sometimes, but it’s just not sustainable.”
Bieber says he finishes work at 6pm, spends the evening with his wife Hailey Bieber, then clocks back on at 8am the next morning. Having no phone, he says, helps him keep his personal and professional lives separate.
“I just changed my priorities so that I didn’t [become] another statistic of young musicians that ended up, like, not making it,” he said.
“There was a time where I really did have my identity wrapped up in my career, but I really do have an overflow of feeling like my purpose is to use my music to inspire.
“At this point, I’ve reached a level of success so many times that I know success isn’t a be-all, end-all to my happiness.”
So the question is, is Bieber taking all his selfies with an iPad? Much to think about…
