The Justin Bieber freight train is still steaming at full blast.
In response to all the criticism the boy wonder has been getting during his recent trek to the UK, JB went on a rant. Then retracted the rant. Then reposted it. Then apologized.
Biebs originally posted a picture of the back of his head on Instagram with a lengthy and boastful rant that said, among other things, “... to those comparing me to Lindsay Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements ;)”
As you can expect (and he should have), the adolescence-fueled comment sparked more drama than it quenched.
“My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say,” Justin went on to explain to TMZ.
He added: “I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now.”
Since his initial tirade, Justin has replaced the message with one that doesn’t include any reference to LiLo. On Instagram, his message currently reads:
“Everyone in my team has been telling me, ‘keep the press happy’ but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I'm going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me. My family is beyond proud, and nothing's been said by them, my grandparents wouldnt know how to reach to press even of they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. if Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol I'm 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I've seen the whole world. 19 and I've accomplished more than I could've ever dreamed of, i'm 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning. I know my talent level and i know i got my head on straight. i know who i am and i know who i'm not My messege is to to believe. My albums could be about anything but my messages have been to never say never and believe, not to believe in me but to believe in yourself .. I honestly don't care if you don't believe in me because I believe in me, my friends believe, my family believe, my fans believe, and look where that's gotten me so far.. I'm writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart. Letting u know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger. I'm a good person with a big heart. And don't think I deserve all this negative press I've worked my a$$ off to get where I am and my hard work doesn't stop here... All this isn't easy. I get angry sometimes. I'm human. I'm gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u. Thanks”
So, there you have it. Well, until he changes his mind again.
