Justin Bieber has been having a tough time in London. Stories about the pop star going around London shirtless after a concert and arriving late to another London show because of “diva-like behavior” (including a backstage “tantrum”) began popping up earlier this month.
Now, it appears that Bieber has had enough of the British tabloid culture and is letting them have a piece of his mind via Twitter.
The pop star tweeted out a dozen different tweets on March 6, railing against “rumors,” “fake stories,” and the public judgment he faces on a daily basis.
Here’s the entire rant, in full:
rumors rumors and more rumors. nothing more nothing less. might talk about them 1 day. rt now im just gonna be positive. cant bring me down
im focused on the good things in life. im blessed and not forgetting it. im giving back every day for it. cant phase me
fake stories to sell papers i guess are part of the job. but im a good person. i know that. u cant tell me different. we know the truth
as long as my family, friends, and fans r with me u can say whatever. we are all equal in God’s eyes & we have a responsibility to eachother
so make up stories about fake fines and make no mention of the positive….
or say when i came out of my show with my shirt off because after performing for 2 hours i might be sweaty i was going into a club (really?)
or any girl i stand next to is my girl or that i dont care, or that i dont feel, or that a 19 year old going to a club in europe is wild…
i understand it is part of the job to be judged…but judge me on the facts, judge me on the music, and be careful of the judgement u pass
[Author’s comment: Though the language in this next tweet leaves things up to interpretation, it’s worth noting that Bieber is, presumably, referring to religious beliefs and not to a dominant/submissive relationship with another man.]
but know this…im only judged by one power, and i serve him
so yeah I will continue being me. i will continue to serve, to perform, to care, to love, to smile, to dance, to play, to sing…
and u are welcome to join, because i carry no hate. We got to much love for that. Im about the music.
Gonna enjoy the day and keep smiling. so should all of u. Much love. i see u #beliebers = i love u
No doubt Bieber’s 35.5 million Twitter followers will back up his sentiments, if they can manage to figure what his point was. Bieber himself, on the other hand, will have to continue to live under the scrutiny that comes with having the celebrity to garner that many Twitter followers.
