Justin Bieber Rants Online, Taking Potshots At LiLo & The Press

Written by Marc Zanotti on March 15, 2013

Justin Bieber has taken to his Instagram account to set the record straight about rumours of rehab and reports that his family has been disappointed by some of the 19-year-old’s recent exploits after a rough week in London, including a brouhaha between Biebs and English paparazzi.

Bieber’s original online vent has been amended to remove a dig a Lindsay Lohan and put a more positive spin on the post. According to Contact Music, the original message finished in a somewhat braggadocio tone, taking a shot Lohan:

“I’m growing up finding myself while having people watch me and criticise me everyday I think im doing pretty damn good. And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan (sic) look at her 2012 tax statements.”

Minutes after the post was taken down before being reposted in its current form. Bieber apologised for the original post, telling TMZ that;

“My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say. I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now.”

The current post finishes in a more humble fashion and acknowledges Beiber’s growing pains as he attempts to mature in front of a worldwide audience.”

“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.”

Although Bieber’s new post may be more palatable for some, including Lohan, it lacks the conviction of Bieber’s original post that, although might have been a tad arrogant, at least came across as genuine. For the most part the new post remains unaltered, but you can read the original below.

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 thats 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 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 u know first hand how I feel rather than have these story (sic) 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 ass 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 damn good. And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan (sic) look at her 2012 tax statements.
