Two weeks ago, Justin Bieber shocked the world by announcing the cancellation of the 14 remaining dates of his Purpose world tour. Bieber has finally broken his silence and spoken out about the reason behind the cancellation in a lengthy and emotional Instagram post.
He began, “I’m so grateful for this journey with all of you. I’m grateful for the tours but most of all I am grateful I get to go through this life WITH YOU! Learning and growing hasn’t always been easy but knowing I’m not alone has kept me going.”
“I have let my insecurities get the best of me at times, I let my broken relationships dictate the way I acted towards people and the way I treated them! I let bitterness, jealousy and fear run my life,” he continued.
Justin made a point to clear the air and admit he has been working on himself and surrounding himself with positive influences to help get his life back on track. Some fans feared that news of Bieber’s cancellation would result in a hiatus or permanent break from the industry. Bieber, however, made it clear that this is not his intention and he’s in it for the long haul when it comes to being a performer. “Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE. I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable so that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be.”
He concluded his thoughtful statement by writing, “THIS MESSAGE IS VERY GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT BUT ITS FROM THE HEART. BUT I THINK THERES SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IMPERFECTIONS!! [sic].”
