“Oh …… Justin Bieber …… lip syncing at Coachella …….. why …… why …… oh no,” one person wrote on Twitter. Another added, “Can Justin Bieber not lip-synch a live performance just once,” while a third chimed in, “Did Justin Bieber really come out to lip-synch to his own song? Lmao way to bring the energy down, mate.” A fourth fumed, “Lulz [sic] … Justin Bieber lip-synch fail. It’s like he’s not even trying.
Then again, the Biebs didn’t exactly have time to practice. After all, the 25-year-old had “no idea” he would be performing.
“I came out here, I had no idea I was going to be on stage tonight. Absolutely no idea. I wore this fly outfit not knowing that I was gonna be on stage,” he said onstage. “So anyways, this is my first time on stage in like two years, so I had to get my groove back. I had to get my swag back, you know what I’m saying? So thank you so much Coachella. Thank you so much to Ariana Grande.”
On March 9, the pop star bravely admitted that he’s been battling mental health issues in a candid post. “Just wanted to keep you guys updated a little bit hopefully what I’m going through will resonate with you guys,” he captioned the snap on Instagram. “Been struggling a lot.”
Luckily, his wife, Hailey Baldwin, has been a pillar of support. The model, 22-year-old took to her own account on April 17 to gush about her man.”My love 😩😍😍 you are an incredible man, you make me a better human being, you make me happier than I’ve ever been,” she wrote. “Insanely proud of who you are and who you’re becoming … I love you more every single day.”
