KEY POINTS

  • Justin Bieber doesn't have a cellphone but uses an iPad to contact his team
  • He said he doesn’t feel like he owes anybody anything
  • He is now gearing up for the release of his sixth album, "Justice"

Justin Bieber, unlike most, doesn't step out with a phone in his pocket. Instead, he stays in touch with people through an iPad.

Explaining the reason behind his lack of a mobile phone, Bieber told Billboard in a new interview that he doesn’t feel like he owes anybody anything. He also shared that not having a phone gives him the power to limit who can reach him.

“I definitely learned how to have boundaries, and I just don’t feel like I owe anybody anything,” said the 27-year-old pop star.

“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," he added.

On the work front, Bieber is gearing up for the release of his sixth album "Justice." It follows last year's R&B-focused project "Changes," which received four nominations at the Grammy Awards.

The singer shared a photo on Twitter that showed a board with notecards pinned to it, revealing the tracklist of the album. It includes singles like "Hold On," "Holy," "Lonely," "Anyone," "Ghost," "Unstable" and "Peaches."

Earlier, Bieber shared the release date of the album on Instagram, writing, "JUSTICE the album March 19th. In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet we all crave healing and justice for humanity."

In creating this album, he said that his goal was to make "music that will provide comfort, to make songs that people can relate to and connect to so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless."

Bieber shared that he feels music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone.

"Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another. I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music but I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet and each other that we are that much closer to being united. This is me doing a small part. My part. I want to continue the conversation of what justice looks like so we can continue to heal," he concluded his post.

Ahead of the album launch, Bieber's Drew House clothing brand teamed up with Crocs for a lavender classic clog with Jibbitz in the likeness of Drew House characters, including a teddy bear. The footwear will be available with a pair of Drew House-branded socks.

"Crocs with socks is definitely the move. They’re comfortable, they’re fashionable, and most importantly it’s fun to bring your own style to how you wear them. It’s been a blast bringing this latest collaboration with Crocs to life," Bieber said in a statement, reported Billboard.
