Singer previously said he wanted to 'live like Jesus'
Justin Bieber reportedly hosted bible studies classes backstage during his ‘Purpose’ world tour.
The pop singer has spent the best part of 2016 on the road supporting last year’s career-reinventing album ‘Purpose’. He concluded the European leg of the tour in London late last month.
The Sun now reports that Bieber had been “sitting down with his opening acts and encouraging them to put Christ before everything” at the gigs.
“His aim is to convert the people he loves and warn other stars against the evils of the industry,” a source allegedly told the newspaper. “Justin’s life changed for the better since he found God and he has been making better decisions now that he has found peace within his faith.”
“After seeing so many other celebs go off the rails, he wants to help his friends find the joy and happiness he has.”
Bieber has spoken about his faith in the past. Last year, the star said he wanted to “live like Jesus”. He also got a face tattoo earlier this year to represent finding “purpose in God”.
Bieber made headlines for his random public antics during his European tour. He has tried to disguise himself in Amsterdam with a fake goatee and wig and also surprised a group of London school children by joining in with their game of football. Meanwhile, he was also spotted in a Glasgow chip shop eating deep-fried haggis.
The singer also repeatedly spoke out about his overzealous fans during the live dates. He told his “obnoxious” London crowd to “be quiet and listen when I’m talking” and ordered his Manchester audience to “shut up” during his ballads. A fan also attempted to pull his trousers down in Prague, while he also appeared to punch a fan who tried to touch him in Barcelona.
Bieber has been confirmed to headline a huge show at London’s Hyde Park as part of the Barclaycard British Summer Time series next year, as well as Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
