Justin Bieber Explains Why He Walked Out of Manchester Concert in Note to Fans
“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,” the 22-year-old entertainer wrote on Twitter, which has now been deleted.
“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.’”
