Justin Bieber penned a letter to his fans on social media a week after he stormed off the stage at his show in Manchester, England. 

According to PEOPLE, the singer tweeted and then deleted, “People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is…people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen. But I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice.”

He continued, “There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m not a robot. There’s times when I get upset…times when I get angry, there’s times when I’m going to be frustrated. But I’m always going to be myself on this stage.”

During last week’s concert, Bieber asked the crowd to stop screaming in between songs. “I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love, I appreciate the kind things. But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop,” he said before eventually putting his mic down and walking off. “Please and thank you. I don’t think it’s necessary when I’m trying to say something and you guys are screaming.”
