Justin Bieber canceled the last leg of his Purpose Tour last month, his camp saying he needed some time off to work on his mental health and soul-search. Aside from the statements his team released and a short message he sent to his fans, we haven't heard much from Bieber himself about why he ended the tour early. But now, an Instagram post has revealed the reason why Justin Bieber canceled his Purpose Tour.
Bieber himself posted a long statement on Instagram late last night, and it's really emotional and honest. He basically says he's been letting his past dictate his actions in the present, and that he doesn't want to do that anymore. Bieber felt he needed to cancel the rest of the Purpose Tour in order to work on all of that. He wrote,
He posted the entire message on Instagram. Further down in the post, he reveals that canceling his tour is not a sign that he wants to quit music like some people feared. It's actually the opposite. Bieber's hoping canceling the rest of the Purpose Tour to work on himself is the best way to keep his "mind, heart, and soul" prepared for the years to come in his music career. He said,
For the most part, fans in the comment section are being really supportive. He continued,
When the news of the tour cancelation first came out, Scooter Braun, Bieber's manager, said in a statement that Bieber "will be back." And now we have confirmation from The Biebs himself.
Hopefully this time off will give him the tools he needs to keep on making music for years to come. Get better, Biebs!
