Before Justin Bieber found Purpose and said “Sorry,” his life was skidding off the rails with a 2014 DUI arrest in Miami, immortalized in a now-iconic (to Beliebers) mugshot. The “What Do You Mean?” singer shared that old image on Instagram beside a new and improved selfie. Bieber had some all-caps thoughts to share about turning his life around over the last three years:
“I LOVE THIS because it reminds me IM NOT EXACTLY WHERE I WANT TO BE BUT THANK GOD IM NOT WHERE I USED TO BE!! THE BEST IS YET TO COME DO YOU BELIEVE IT?”
Since then, Justin’s won his first GRAMMY and launched a never-ending world tour on the heels of his most critically successful album to date. 2.1 million fans (who’ve liked his before-and-after so far) agree.
