Justin Bieber is saying sorry… again.
The pop sensation shared a since-deleted message to his Twitter followers Saturday evening, offering an explanation for a string of incidents in which Bieber has asked concertgoers to keep the noise level to a minimum.
“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,” the 22-year-old wrote. “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.”
Justin 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.”
The Grammy winner has faced criticism during the European leg of his Purpose World Tour for calling fans’ screaming “obnoxious.” During his Manchester show earlier this week, Bieber was so frustrated with the noise that he decided to simply drop his mic and storm off stage.
He then took a few minutes to cool off before returning and telling the crowd, “We’re just going to do the music. Obviously Manchester just can’t handle it, so let’s do the music.”
Justin’s letter concluded, “When people try to twist things and say, ‘Justin’s angry at his fans. He doesn’t want his fans to scream’ that’s not at all what I was doing. 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.’ I just appreciate you guys tonight, listening to me and understanding, and rocking with me. You guys are truly amazing,” he wrote.
