[gallery columns="3"]About one week ago, Canadian artist Justin Bieber stormed off the stage during his Manchester performance. Now he’s looking to explain himself, stating he wasn’t angry at the fans, but that he just wanted them to listen. Posting a letter on Twitter (which he soon then deleted), the singer address his sudden exit from the October 23 show. Read the whole letter below:

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.

There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m always going to try and be myself on this stage.

When people try and twist things and say, “Justin’s angry at his fans. He doesn’t want his fans to scream,” that’s not at all what I was doing. All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen, to kind of hear me out a little bit. Certain people … certain cities aren’t going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it’s my job to say, “Hey, I’m not going to try to force anything.” I just appreciate you guys tonight, listening to me and understanding and rocking with me. You guys are truly amazing.
