Justin Bieber Writes Open Letter To Fans, Addresses Negativity While Shading Lindsay Lohan

Oh, poor Justin Bieber. The little rapscallion has gotten into all sorts of trouble lately! Hospitalizations! Canceled concerts! Paparazzi attacks! Giving birth to kids with named Sean Preston and Jayden James(Oh, wait, never mind. Wrong meltdown.)

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Biebs had to make a statement about all the rumors that have been flying, and set the record straight, once and for all — he’s fine! Nothing to see here. Move right along.

To wit:

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

One thing’s for sure: He definitely wrote that himself.

But wait! There’s a new wrinkle to this story. TMZ reports that this is actually the second draft of a Bieber letter — the first one, apparently, closed with a line in which Bieber responded to those who have compared him to Lindsay Lohan, who is sad and poor: “… to those comparing me to Lindsay Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements ;)”

He deleted it and replaced it with a line about the importance of overcoming negativity, which makes sense.

In conclusion: Everybody wins here. Except Lindsay Lohan.
