Rich in Faith‘s Rich Wilkerson says comeback kid Justin Bieber’s transformation is just as genuine as it appears.
“He’s been thrown into a whirlwind that I’ll never know and so I think on his journey he’s always trying to figure it out,” Wilkerson says in an interview with ET. “He’s got a heart of gold.”
Media largely praised Bieber’s return to the spotlight and his transformation from arrested, drugged-out bad boy to repentant super star.
“I’m not what I was pretending to be,” Bieber said in 2015. “Why I say I was ‘pretending’ is often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover-up of what we’re truly feeling inside. And there was a lot of feelings going on in there. Just being young and growing up in this business is hard. Just growing up in general is hard.”
Pre-2015, Bieber was so disheveled, his manager believed the singer could have died.
Now, Bieber says he just wants to “honestly live like Jesus.”
