UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — Canadian pop icon Justin Bieber has broken his silence after suddenly canceling the rest of his world tour.
Bieber called off the remaining 14 show dates in Asia and North America in a July 24 statement, telling TMZ he just wanted some rest and relaxation.
Bieber revealed more details in a letter on Instagram posted Aug. 2.
He said, “Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be sustainable. I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind, heart and soul to be sustainable. So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be.”
The Biebs also mentioned his past mistakes and wanting to move on from them.
The Instagram post comes shortly after former One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson criticized Bieber’s decision in an interview with 92.3 AMP Radio.
