One of the most enduring pop stars of our times, Justin Bieber announced that he was battling a rare affliction known as Ramsay Hunt syndrome back in June of 2022.
Bieber's brave disclosure raised awareness of this uncommon condition. He took a step back from his career for many months to recover, sadly canceling the remaining dates of his Justice World Tour, but he showed up on Instagram to provide a brief update on March 16. The short video uploaded to his stories included the words "Wait for it" and a close-up of the singer's face as he cracks a huge smile. Bieber had previously been unable to smile fully due to the paralysis in his right cheek.
While the news of his condition initially shocked fans and tabloids the world over, the question on everyone's mind remains: what exactly is Ramsay Hunt syndrome? This ailment, affecting one of the most famous men in the world, has seldom been heard of before.
