Justin Bieber was in tears during a Los Angeles show last week to celebrate the launch of his new album “Purpose.”

The Canadian singer had an emotional Friday night last Nov. 13, during his “An Evening with Justin Bieber” show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Entertainment Tonight reports. Bieber held a Q&A session with his fans during the show and shared a few personal details on how he overcame previous challenges.

When fans asked whether he's happy, the pop singer replied that he was “happy overall” although “a little stressed out.” Bieber was also very open to his fans during the event and even shared how he felt, saying that “[he] lost [his] place for a while.”

"I lost my purpose,” he said. “And I wanted to just be light and let people know that whether you don't feel like you have a purpose, whether you're just trying to figure it out, there's a light at the end of the tunnel."

It was while Bieber was performing “I’ll Show You” during the event that he became emotional. After the performance, Bieber conveyed his appreciation for the fans' support and even gave his manager-friend Scooter Braun a hug. The singer even stated, "Why am I crying so hard?"

The pop singer also took to Twitter after his Staples Center show to again thank his fans for their support. Bieber wrote, “You guys just got me crying. D---. I missed this and u. Thank u so much. Thank you. #EveningWithJB #Purpose.”

Meanwhile, apart from launching his new album, Bieber also released music videos for each of the tracks from his “Purpose” album on his VEVO page over the weekend, according to MTV News. The project, titled “Purpose: The Movement,” had Bieber dropping music videos after another, one for every hour, on Saturday, Nov. 14. The music video project, which Bieber described as a “short film,” was created by the singer along with choreographer Parris Goebel.

Bieber has released more than a dozen music videos for tracks from his “Purpose” album, including a new version for the song “What Do You Mean.”
