Justin is not happy, and he let his frustration out with a lengthy Instagram post on Mar. 14! He’s done trying to ‘keep the press happy’ and saying how he really feels. Click on to see every word of Justin’s new rant!
After a rough couple of weeks, Justin Bieber could no longer hold it in. On Mar. 14, he posted a LONG Instagram comment taking on all the haters, and though it’s since been taken down and put back up in an edited form — more on that later — we’ve got the whole thing for you below.
Justin Bieber’s Instagram Rant
“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 wouldn’t know how to reach to press even [if] they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. If Anyone believes I need rehab that’s 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 [message] 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, 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 you 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 of this negative press. I’ve worked my a** off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here. I’m growing up finding myself while having people watch me and criticise me everyday i think im doing pretty da** good. comparing me to Lindsey Lohan. look at her 2012 tax statements ;)”
Justin Bieber: Did His Grandparents Speak To The Press?
The rant seems to have been set off by reports that Justin’s grandparents spoke to the press, saying they were “shocked and terribly saddened” by Justin’s most recent antics. The Daily Star Sunday newspaper wrote a full-blown story with many alleged quotes from Justin’s grandparents. But in Justin’s message, he claims they never said those things. In fact, they “wouldn’t know how to reach press!”
Justin Bieber’s Revealing Instagram Moment: A Few Thoughts
We’ve got a couple thoughts; actually, we’ve got a million thoughts. But we’ll keep this short.
First of all, Justin, we can’t claim to know your relationship with alcohol or drugs and whether or not it warrants a trip to rehab. That’s not up to us, it’s between you and your family. If you’re as comfortable as you say you are, then you don’t need rehab. And yes, you’re a long way off from becoming Lindsay Lohan — though we’re not sure throwing her under the bus was entirely necessary.
And we’ve always loved your over-all message of believing in yourself no matter what. It’s inspirational and moving, and most importantly, it’s the perfect message to send to all of your young fans.
But — and we say this because we care — you have to admit that things have been crazier than ever lately. Between your marijuana scandal, the time you showed up late to a concert, and your assault on a photographer, it hasn’t looked great. No matter how many No. 1 albums you have, no matter how many places you’ve seen and how much you’ve accomplished, none of that is going to make us stop worrying about you. Having No. 1 songs don’t mean you’re allowed to lose your manners.
Justin Bieber Edits His Instagram Rant
It appears someone from Justin’s team made him remove the rant and edit it, because it went away, then returned with a slight amendment. The new ending reads:
“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”
That is certainly a more positive response! Everyone makes mistakes, that is very true. We’re behind you, Justin, and we hope you make it through this difficult time.
