Justin Bieber took to [the desktop version of] the Notes app Wednesday to share a long note to his fans in which he offered something resembling an explanation for canceling the final 14 dates of his Purpose tour.
In the note—which was first written in the aforementioned Notes app, photographed somewhat poorly, and then uploaded to his Instagram account—the young singer begins by saying he’s “grateful for the tours” and being able to “go through this life WITH YOU [THE FANS].” You know, typical stuff pop stars say to appease the rabid fans whose collective wrath they’re probably sort of a teensy bit scared of.
He goes on to say that he is done letting “bitterness, jealousy and fear” run his life, and that he’s grateful to be surrounded by people who want to help him “build [his] character back up.” (I have a feeling one of those people is Hillsong’s Carl Lentz.)
But let’s jump back to the reason for canceling his tour. Bieber says he took the time off in order to work on becoming “SUSTAINABLE,” much like this Oregon dairy farm. He writes:
“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.”
Bieber ends the message by cutting his haters off at the pass, writing (all sic’ed):
“THIS MESSAGE IS VERY GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT BUT ITS FROM THE HEART. BUT I THINK THERES SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IMPERFECTIONS!!”
Taylor Swift and that DJ she says groped her back in 2013 are going to trial in Denver soon, and TMZ says it’s the hottest ticket in town. “Only 32 seats will be held each day for the public, and they’ll be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis,” they write.
Once the trial begins, interested parties (who wouldn’t want to watch a woman relive a traumatic experience in court?) “can start lining up at 6 AM and passes will be handed out at 7 to the first 32.”
On a brighter note, Page Six asked the wonderful Debi Mazar for the secret to a “happy marriage,” and she said, “Alcohol, sex — lots of sex.”
