Justin Bieber has hit his breaking point. After hearing it about his choice in friends, his alleged temper and the quality of his music, the singer finally lashed out at his critics in the form of a lengthy Instagram post. The diatribe, posted this morning, flips off the haters, pats himself on the back and promises plenty more career successes for the nineteen-year-old pop star.
You can take a look at the mini-rant in its entirety below…
A slightly altered version of the above rant was initially posted that included a slap at Lindsay Lohan. Apparently, someone compared the two recently, and the Biebs was none too pleased and told fans to take a look at her tax records and get back to him. Intelligently, he decided to rework his statement and took that petty shot out.
As for what remains, from a purely public relations standpoint, it’s not exactly the world’s greatest decision. It comes off as a little too defensive and emotional, but for an open letter written by an angry nineteen-year-old, it actually works pretty well. It has moments of great optimism, outlines his vision and illustrates the delicate tightrope he’s walking between growing up and trying to please his fans. Decades of teen idols tell us he can’t possibly satisfy all of his fans and continue to change at the same time, but given his talent, the Biebs may be able to come close.
I highly doubt Bieber will look back on this letter and think, “I handled that perfectly” in ten years, but hopefully, it can serve as a conduit for him to get over the negativity and get back to being the happy singer millions have come to love.
