Fame can do that to you, as well as, everyone around you telling you "yes" to everything your heart desires. Bieber has realized this. So much so, he recently declared that he will be stopping his tour to focus on himself, and, rumor has it, to start his own church.
Bieber apologized to his fans through TMZ. He said, “I love you guys, I think you guys are awesome. Sorry for anyone who feels disappointed or betrayed, it’s not in my heart [or] anything, and have a blessed day.”
“Im so grateful for this journey with all of you..” Bieber began. “Im grateful for the tours but most of all I am grateful i get to go through this life WITH YOU.! [sic] learning and growing hasn't always been easy but knowing I im 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 toward people and the way I treated them! i let bitterness, jealousy and fear run my life.!!!!” Bieber continued.
“I am extremely blessed to have people in the past few years help me build my character back up reminding me of who I am and who I want to be!!!” the singer added. “Reminding me my past decisions and past relationships don't dictate my future decisions and my future relationships. im [sic] VERY aware I'm never gonna be perfect, and I'm gonna keep making mistakes but what I'm not gonna do is let my past dictate my future”
“What I'm not gonna do is be ashamed of my mistakes. I wanna be a man that learns from them and grows from them.!! I want you all to know this tour has been unbelievable and has taught me so much about myself..”
“I am reminded of how blessed I am to have a voice in this world,” Bieber wrote. “I've learned the more you appreciate your calling the more you want to protect you calling. Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE.”
“This message is just an opportunity for you to know my heart, I'm not expecting anyone to understand, but I do want people to have an opportunity to know where I am coming from! THIS MESSAGE IS IS [sic] VERY GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT BUT ITS FROM THE HEART. BUT I THINK THERES SOMETHINS SPECIAL ABOUT IMPERFECTIONS!!”
[Managing Editor's note: Yeah, Bieb's grammar kind of broke me.]
