Justin Bieber has admitted he is an “emotional” person at times, but insists he is just being a “normal person and crying” when he is spotted in tears.

The “Intentions” hitmaker’s fans were concerned about him in 2018 when photos emerged of the star in tears, but he has recalled just feeling emotional that day and says he is being a “normal person and crying”.

He said: “I’m just being a normal person and crying.

“When I’m in the media and I look at things on the internet and people are like, ‘Justin’s upset, why is he upset?’ It’s like, they don’t give me permission to be upset. I don’t have permission to be, you know, human and shed tears.

“There’s so many people every day who are in a conversation with their girl or their wife or their mom and they break down, you know?
