The 22-year-old entertainer published the note in the early morning hours of Sunday, but since deleted it.
“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,” Justin wrote on Twitter.
“There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. … 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 note continued. “All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit. 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.’”
Justin Bieber just wanted a moment to talk to his fans, but he wasn’t given it so he walked off the stage in the middle of his Manchester, England concert on Sunday (October 23).
The 22-year-old singer pleaded with has fans to quiet down, but his request was not met so he took matters into his own hands.
“I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love I appreciate the kind things,” Justin said. “But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop. Please and thank you. I don’t think it’s necessary when I’m trying to say something and you guys are screaming.”
Justin eventually walked off stage after dropping the mic, but he later returned to continue the show.
“The reason why I got upset is because I traveled across the whole world to come here and I dedicated my life to this,” he said. “I dedicated my life to performing, I dedicate my life to bringing smiles to people’s faces, and I feel like people just aren’t giving me the same respect back, and courtesy. That’s all.”
During his concert at the Manchester Arena in England on Thursday (October 20), the “Purpose” singer scolded his fans for screaming when he was trying to talk to them.
“I just thought I could have a moment of trying to say something,” he shared on stage when he was trying to speak. “But if not, I’ll just get to singing if you guys don’t want to hear me speak. I don’t mind cutting the bullsh–. I don’t need to talk. I’m just trying to engage.”
Justin Bieber doesn’t feel like he’s being heard at his concerts and wants fans to stop screaming when he’s talking.
The 22-year-old singer stopped telling a story during a Purpose Tour stop in England on Tuesday (October 18) to ask fans to tone down the screaming.
“Can you guys do me a favor? Can you guys just relax for about two seconds? I get it, I get it, but I’m, like, 2 feet away from you. And I can hear you. I appreciate all the love, it’s amazing. But can you show it in a different way? Screaming is just so obnoxious,” Justin explained.
He later added, “I get it, it’s been in our blood and it’s ingrained — you go to a concert and you scream and stuff. But if you could just scream after the song, enjoy the song, and then take a chill pill for a second and listen to me speak. I don’t feel like I’m being heard sometimes, and it gets a little frustrating. When I’m speaking, can you guys not scream at the top of your lungs?”
