26 September 2021
In a video shared by 'Entertainment Tonight' as Bieber teams up with Audacy for the 'I'm Listening' initiative, he said: "Touring can definitely be gruelling. And I think the same way I was able to kind of set boundaries for this project and be able to prioritize time with my wife and time that I'm not working and be off the grid, "I think as long as I do that throughout this tour. It's always kind of like, 'You live and you learn,' and you just learn how to say no.

"There was this quote the other day that I heard, it was like, 'Don't be resentful about something you say yes to, just do it and then when you're done, reassess your boundaries and don't do it again,' so I kind of am trying to live by that."
His comments come as the 'Hold On' hitmaker teams up with Audacy for their new campaign, which includes a live broadcast bringing together artists, athletes, medical specialists and others with intimate conversations about mental health.
Justin will be part of a star-studded line up including the likes of Shakira, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, Lizzo, Machine Gun Kelly, Darius Rucker, Nelly, Glennon Doyle, Lil Nas X, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Bleachers star Jack Antonoff.
