Being in the public eye, married to one of the biggest pop stars on the planet has lots of benefits, sure. But it also comes with lots of pressure.

Hailey Bieber married Justin in 2018 but he had several high profile relationships before that, including Selena Gomez.

During their show The Biebers, the couple were taking part in a Q&A when someone asked:

“How do you manage to be a couple when everyone feels like they have a say in their relationship?”

Hailey went on to talk about being compared to Justin’s exes, which made her feed bad.

“Let me start by saying there’s probably a lot I could say about that particular question, about that subject. It’s definitely not easy. Justin knows that I’ve had a really, really hard go, and a really hard time with a lot of the things people say and a lot of the ways that I feel like people have made comparisons and just put me in a position where they’ve made me really feel like less of a woman,” she said.

She went on to say that because JB has such die-hard fans, they dod feel like they get to have an opinion on his personal life

“It’s not easy, I think especially when people have fans that are really passionate and they want to express that and they want to express their opinion. I also think when people have a lot to say about something, they go out of their way to make somebody feel less than or go out of their way to make somebody feel bad, it’s because they’re going through something themselves, and they’re projecting onto this public figure, and it makes them feel better about themselves,” she said.

“That reality doesn’t make it any easier, but I think it helps to remind myself, ‘That person is only making me feel that way because they’re going through something themselves.’ I’ve addressed it a lot.”

She added that she now knows that she can’t please everyone and that she can’t let it bother her anymore.

“I’ve addressed how I think I’ve gotten to a point where people are gonna say what they’re gonna say people think they know what happened in his life and his relationships and they think they know what happened between us and our relationship and how we got here and there’s no possible way they could. They invent details that they think are true that really aren’t, and I got to a point where I’m like, ‘Why am I even gonna try to go out of my way to set the record straight where it’s really nobody’s business and it doesn’t matter?’ There’s so much that people don’t know that went behind the scenes.”
