By  | 



If you didn’t get the message last week from Justin Bieber‘s Twitter rant on rumors, perhaps you’ll understand where he’s coming from after his latest social media tirade. In a drawn-out Instagram post (which was deleted shortly after it was published), Justin slams the media for allegedly making comments about his family, his livelihood, and comparing him to Lindsay Lohan. Here it goes:

“Everyone [o]n my team has been telling me, “keep the press happy” but I’m tired off all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I’m going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me. My family is beyond proud, and nothing’s been said by them, my grandparents wouldn’t know how to reach to press even [i]f they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. If anyone believes I need rehab that’s their own stupidity lol.”

“I’m 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I’ve accomplished more than I could’ve ever dreamed of, I’m 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning. I know my talent level and I know I got my head on straight. I know who I am and I know who I’m not. My [message] is to to believe. My albums could be about anything but my messages have been to never say never and believe, not to believe in me, but to believe in yourself .. I honestly don’t care if you don’t believe in me because I believe in me, and look where that’s gotten me so far,” he continues.

He adds, “I’m writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart. Letting u know first hand how I feel rather than have these stor[ies] linger. I’m a good person with a big heart. And don’t think I deserve all of this negative press I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here. I’m growing up finding myself while having people watch me and critici[z]e me everyday I think I’m doing pretty damn good. And to those comparing me to Linds[a]y Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements ;)”
