A Justin Bieber letter to fans, posted by the star himself on social media, explains the tour cancellation from a very personal point of view.
Justin Bieber posted a photo on Instagram that presents a letter to his fans and followers through which the singer justifies the cancellation of his tour. Even though, at some point he writes that he doesn’t expect people to understand, he still believes that opening-up about the transition he is going through is worth posting.
Bieber has cancelled the remaining of his Purpose tour in late July, citing “unforeseen circumstances”. At the time, his representative thanked the fans and said that Bieber “hates to disappoint” them, but “after careful consideration, he has decided he will not be performing any further dates.”
More than a dozen concerts have been cancelled and people were refunded, but this was little consolation to those who had been waiting to see Justin onstage.
After more than a week of silence, the singer explained himself on Instagram:
“I let my broken relationships dictate the way I acted toward people”, he writes, adding: “I have let my insecurities get the best of me”. The first part of the text does not explain the tour cancellation at all, however, later on he writes that he had become aware of his calling and wants to protect it. “Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE”. He clarifies that he wants to be sustainable not only careerwise, but also mindwise and heartwise.
“I’m not expecting anyone to understand, but I do want people to have an opportunity to know where I am coming from.”
The Justin Bieber letter doesn’t come to clarify his state, but rather to offer some sort of explanation of the state he is going through.
Lately, Justin’s behavior has been quite erratic. Just days after the tour cancellation, the musician hit a paparazzo with his car, in Beverly Hills. Sources say he only wanted to scare the man and after realizing he hit him, he got out of the car to check on him. The photographer, Maurice Lamont, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he received treatment for minor injuries.
