I'm sorry yeah
Yeah, I know-oh-oh, that I let you down (let you down)
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?
-- "Sorry," written by by Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Sonny Moore, Michael Tucker and Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber, who stormed off stage mid-concert last week in Manchester, England, tweeted and then quickly deleted a letter to his fans on Saturday night that went to some length to explain his recent onstage tantrum.
In the tweet, the "Sorry" singer offered an explanation on why's he's been hushing fans during his Purpose tour.
"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," the "Sorry" singer said. "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.
"When people try to twist things and say 'Justin's angry at his fans. He doesn't want his fans to scream,' that's not at all what I was doing. All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit. Certain people … certain cities aren't going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it's my job to just say 'Hey, I'm not going to try to force anything'. I just appreciate you guys tonight, listening to me and understanding, and rocking with me. You guys are truly amazing."
It is worth noting that fan hysteria and the screaming that drowned out their performances played heavily in the decision by the Beatles to withdraw from performing live in 1966, three years prior to the quartet disbanding to pursue solo careers.
