It's no secret that Justin Bieber has had a rough couple of weeks. But apparently he's just about had it.
The 19-year-old singer took to Instagram where he posted a tirade against the media. "Everyone has been telling me 'Keep the press happy' but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now," he writes. The Biebs wants you to know he is NOT going to rehab, and his family is "beyond proud" of him, thank you very much.
He also takes the time to remind everyone of his vast accomplishments: "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 message is to believe."
He also writes that he "doesn't care" if you don't believe in him. "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."
He also made fun of Lindsay Lohan and her financial problems in an earlier post that was quickly taken down. At the end of that post, he said, "to those comparing me to Lindsay Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements :)."
But he has apologized, telling TMZ, "My post was only up for a few minutes (10) but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say. ... I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now."
And just in case you forgot, the teen heartthrob's recent woes include having what he called the "worst birthday ever," being hospitalized after complaining of breathing problems during a concert in London last week, getting into an argument with paparazzi and a concert cancellation in Portugal.
