Earlier today, Bieber took to Instagram to share his opinions with the world, specifically his opinions on a certain fallen starlet. “And to those comparing me to Lindsay Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements ;).”
Though Bieber has since amended his original statement about Lohan, he hasn’t yet taken down his long rant about the hurdles of trying to please the press and how his success at such a young age probably scares certain people.
“Everyone in my team has been telling me, ‘keep the press happy’ but I’m tired of 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 wouldnt know how to reach to press even of they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. if Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol I’m 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I’ve seen the whole world. 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 messege 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, my friends believe, my family believe, my fans believe, and look where that’s gotten me so far. 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 story linger. I’m a good person with a big heart. And don’t think I deserve all this negative press I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here… All this isn’t easy. I get angry sometimes. I’m human. I’m gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u. Thanks”
While getting ready for his concert tonight in Madrid, Bieber tweeted a video link to a mash-up of press interviews that his fans created.

When asked by Oprah what keeps him from being a ‘crackup’ he explained, “I think it is remembering what’s important. I find even sometimes I get lost in everything. Everyone’s pulling me in 30 different directions so I have to remember to take time for myself, to think about what I’m going through, to talk to people I love about what I’m going through, not keeping everything in my head.”
The singer might want to heed his own advice.
