The release of Bieber's album, Purpose,
marked something of a comeback for the singer after he had been plagued with heartbreak (Selena Gomez
) and scandal. "I'm stubborn and I've always been really stubborn," he told ET
prior to the album's release. "I think if I would have just known I could have been myself, but I don't think I knew my self-worth enough. I think that comes in time."
