Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga call being famous, ironically, an isolating experience. Read on to see why all the money in the world can’t cover the costs of being famous.

Justin Bieber became a teenage heartthrob, with “beliebers” all around the world flocking to see him. In a 2015 interview with NME, Justin said he only wanted to be a musician and wasn’t prepared for the fame that took over.

The star called being constantly surrounded by paparazzi and fans “intense.” He said, “When you can’t go anywhere or do anything alone you get depressed … I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone.” Considering Justin’s difficultly with fame, it’s no wonder he’s stuck to dating (and now marrying) famous women who understand what he goes through.
