Justin Bieber Tweets an Apology to Fans, But Still Defends His Erratic Concert Behavior

Don’t worry, Justin. It’s never too late to say sorry to your millions of Beliebers.

The 22-year-old posted a lengthy apology letter on Twitter, which has since been deleted, Saturday evening and attempt to justify his recent behavior at a string of concerts. Specifically, Bieber has asked concertgoers to keep the noise level to a minimum and has even walked off of the stage when the fans would not comply, like in Manchester this past week. The pop superstar has recently faced criticism for calling the screaming of his hordes of young  fans “obnoxious.” But last night, Bieber spoke directly to his fans on Twitter. Although, we are wondering why he deleted it pretty much immediately after posting. You can read the full apology below.

“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. 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.

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.

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”

Oh, J-Biebs.
