Most recently, he attracted unwanted attention by cancelling the last 14 shows of his global Purpose tour. He explained that the main reason for pulling out was that he needed to rest. But in a lengthy post on his Instagram account, he went further.
In fact, the singer went into a detailed explanation of how he was striving to become a better person and move on from past mistakes. He said that he’d let “jealousy, bitterness and fear run [his] life,” and that he wants his “mind, heart and soul to be sustainable.”
There’s nothing especially unusual about a pop star like Bieber leaving such an elaborate, emotionally charged post on social media. It’s also not all that out of the ordinary to cancel the final run of shows, especially considering that Bieber had already played 150 by that stage.
