With some people – somewhere – probably – still chatting about why, exactly, Justin Bieber decided to cancel his remaining tour dates, the man himself took to Instagram earlier this week to explain. Sort of.

His typed up message was rather waffley, but he wants you to know that his ‘Purpose’ tour was unbelievable, that he is “blessed”, that he’s looking to the future, and that he is just taking some time out right now in order to be “sustainable”. And why not, say I.

In amongst the waffle, future looking Bieber wrote: “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. 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. Reminding me my past decisions and past relationships don’t dictate my future decisions and my future relationships”.

While on the need to take time out, he added: “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. 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’m coming from”.

The whole message is hereAs previously reported, Bieber announced last week that he was cancelling remaining tour dates in North America and Asia due to “unforeseen circumstances”.
