We’re starting to wonder how Justin Bieber even has any fans left, because it sure seems like his constant tantrums would be enough to cure even the most raging case of Bieber Fever by now.
If you hadn’t heard yet, the Biebs’ most recent meltdown occurred last week, when he dropped the mic (but not in a good way) and ran off stage during a concert in Manchester because fans booed him after he scolded them for cheering and screaming during his set.
On Sunday, Bieber took to Twitter to address the meltdown.
“People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is… people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen,” he wrote in a now-deleted post, as captured by a fan account. “But I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice.”
Bieber continued, “There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m not a robot. There’s times when I get upset… times when I get angry, there’s times when I’m going to be frustrated. But I’m always going to be myself on this stage… All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen, to kind of hear me out a little bit. Certain people… certain cities aren’t going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it’s my job to just say, ‘hey, I’m not going to try to force anything.'”
So, basically, what he’s trying to say is that his adoring fans didn’t pipe down quickly enough for him to make the undoubtedly soul-bearing statement he had planned, so it’s their fault he ended the show early.
What he is sorry for is the fact he even tweeted a kinda-sorta apology in the first place — the post wasn’t up more than a few hours before he took it down. Either that or a member of his (probably underpaid) PR machine begged him to delete it.
What did you think of Justin Bieber’s apology? Legit, or just another tantrum?
