The world has watched Canadian native Justin Bieber rise from a youtube sensation to international stardom. Talent manager Scooter Braun discovered Justin Bieber’s home-made youtube videos covering songs at the age of 12 and later signed him to RBMG in 2008. After 11 years of momumental musical success and many controversies, the artist has reached manhood and settled down. At 25 and married, the couple Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have tied the knot. Although happily married, the newlyweds have admitted that marriage is hard; despite the hardships they making ‘coupling’ look easy.
In an interview discussed in a vogue article Justin explains, “it’s been so hard for me to trust people. I’ve struggled with the feeling that people are using me or aren’t really there for me… One of the big things for me is trusting myself. I’ve made some bad decisions personally, and in relationships. Those mistakes have affected my confidence in my judgement. It’s been difficult for me to even trust Hailey,” Haskell 2019. We understand that by law marriage binds you to your partner and everything is shared. Trust and loyalty are two major aspects for a successful relationship, and at a young age we may not be completely sure of our future and commitment. Three years ago and three years younger, Hailey and Justin gave dating a try, briefly, but things did not end well. Hailey “was under no illusions about his capacity for exclusivity at the time. Both intimate that a betrayal occurred,” Haskell 2019. In June 2018 they cross paths again at a conference in Miami hosted by Rich Wilkerson Jr., the pastor of Vous Church, who officiated at the marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Hailey states, “by then we were past the drama. I just gave him a hug. By the end of the conference he was like, ‘We’re not going to be friends,’” Haskell 2019, and within a month he popped the question.
“To understand the Biebers’ relationship, it’s necessary to understand their belief in and attraction to each other’s fundamental differentness. He is the id to her superego, the wild thing she could never have permitted of herself,” Haskell 2019. The couple also translates this understanding into their fashion. Justin and Hailey have put a twist on matching couple outfits. Christian Allaire explains, “the duo has cultivated a complementary look that is entirely their own, often coordination ensembles that are heavy on streetwear and athleisure.” With their unique individual looks, the couple has mastered exchanging styles and switching roles. We sense Justin’s influence on Hailey when we spot her doing his signature sporty looks, and in turn we sense Hailey’s taste translate onto Justin’s style including biker jackets and cutoff shorts. “Sometimes it seems as if they’ve traded fashion places for a day—just for fun,” Allaire, 2019.
We’d like to congratulate these youngsters on their new journey, and we appreciate their brutal honesty. As celebrities in the public eye, we understand that image is vital in the industry. We wish longterm success and happiness to the couple, and we look forward to the looks they’ll continue creating as the modern-day couple image goals.
