Billie Eilish shared an emotional Justin Bieber clip on her Instagram account this weekend.
In it, Justin tells Beats 1 interviewer Zane Lowe (full interview here) how he has an intense need to “protect” Billie from all the fame traps that nearly did him in.
“Yeah, so um, yeah — I just want to protect her,” he says, wiping away tears, taking deep breaths and sniffing loudly in a the clip.
“I don’t want her to lose it. I don’t want her to go through anything I went through,” he told Lowe, having admitted elsewhere that his path of self-destruction from finding fame so young almost killed him.
“I don’t wish that upon anybody. So um, yeah, if she ever needs me I’m just a call away,” said Bieber, now 25.
It’s really very sweet.
