Justin Bieber has addressed why he quit his world tour with an emotional open letter on Instagram

“I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable so that I can be the man I want to be”

A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

LAST WEEK, JUSTIN Bieber cancelled the remainder of his Purpose World Tour citing “unforeseen circumstances.”

This led to a whirlwind of speculation about what had happened, a backlash from some fans put out by the cancellations and a reminder from John Mayer that the decision was probably not taken lightly – and people should bear that in mind when complaining:

When someone pulls remaining dates of a tour, it means they would have done real damage to themselves if they kept going

Justin hadn’t addressed the cancellation until late last night, when he published this screenshot of a letter he had typed out

He began:

I’m so grateful for this journey with all of you. I’m grateful for the tours but most of all I am grateful I get to go through this life WITH YOU! Learning and growing hasn’t always been easy but knowing I’m 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 towards 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!!! My past decisions and past relationships won’t dictate my future decisions and my future relationships.

He then referenced how enjoyable the Purpose Tour was for him, but that he had to cancel it so he could be “sustainable”:

I’m VERY aware I’m never gonna be perfect, and I’m gonna keep making 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. I’ve learned the more you appreciate your calling the more you want to protect your calling.
Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE. I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable so that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be.

He finished:

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!

He left the letter with reference to the grammatical errors in the post, but that there’s “something special about imperfections.”

Just before he posted the letter, Bieber praised John Mayer calling him a “boss on every level”

@johnmayer is a boss on every level

Possibly a shoutout for Mayer’s much-publicised defence of Bieber when the initial news broke.

Get well soon, Justin.
