In a reprehensible Instagram rant that basically calls Lohan a loser, Bieber sounds like he's in a "the whole world's against me" kind of mood.
The post starts out somewhat shakily: Bieber is upset over press reports that have painted him as troubled.
"I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now," Bieber wrote. "Saying I'm going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me."
"My family is beyond proud," Bieber continued. "If Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol I'm 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I've seen the whole world. 19 and I've accomplished more than I could've ever dreamed of."
Still basically okay, though certainly being unstable and/or a drug addict is not mutually exclusive with success. But okay.
Then Bieber got cocky, writing, "i'm 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning. I know my talent level and i know i got my head on straight. i know who i am."
Finally, things wrapped up with a stinger that has been since deleted from the post, TMZ reports: all those "comparing me to Lindsay Lohan, look at her 2012 tax statements."
All right, the kid wrote something nasty, then he deleted it. Good on him. While you're deleting, though, Justin, maybe you want to delete the bit about your talent level?
Bieber has been on a bit of a social-media bender of late, posting a series of 13 Twitter posts last week decrying the media that said in part "fake stories to sell papers" are "part of the job."
