Justin Bieber has finally weighed in on why he cancelled the rest of his "Purpose Tour", revealing he needed his "mind, heart, and soul" to be "sustainable" so he could become a better man.

In a lengthy Instagram post on Wednesday, the 23-year-old Canadian popstar admitted that in the past, he'd let his "broken relationships" dictate the way he treated others and admitted that he was "never going to be perfect" but wasn't going to let resentment run his life.

"Im so grateful for this journey with all of you," he wrote in an Instagram snap. "Im grateful for the tours but most of all I am grateful I get to go through this life WITH YOU.! Learning and growing hasn't always been easy but knowing I im not alone has kept me going."

"I have let my insecurities get the best of me at time, I let my broken relationships dictate the way I acted toward people and the way I treated them! I let bitterness, jealousy and fear run my life.!!!!"

Seemingly referencing his relationships with Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz and the City Church pastor Judah Smith, Bieber said he's "extremely blessed to have people in the past few years help me build my character back up reminding me of who I am and who I want to be!!!"

"Reminding me of my past decisions and past relationships don't dictate my future decisions and my future relationships," he said. "Im VERY aware I'm never gonna be perfect, and I'm gonna keep making mistakes but what I'm not gonna do is let my past dictate my future.. What I'm not gonna do is be ashamed of my mistakes. I wanna be a man that learns from them and grows from them.!!' (sic.)

The "Despacito" singer said that he also wanted his "mind, heart, and soul" to be "sustainable" like his career so he could become a better man.

"I want you all to know this tour has been unbelievable and has taught me so much about myself...I am reminded of how blessed I am to have a voice in this world," he said.

"I've learned the more you appreciate your calling the more you want to protect your calling. 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."

"This message is just an opportunity for you to know my heart, I'm not expecting anyone to understand, but I do want people to have an opportunity to know where I am coming from!"


Shortly before cancelling his tour, Bieber was in Australia to attend the annual Hillsong Church conference in Sydney.

When asked if he had a message for his fans, he replied: I love you guys. I just think you guys are awesome. Sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or betrayed. It's not my heart or anything. Have a blessed day."

Asked if he cancelled the tour because of his relationship with Christ, he replied, "No, no ... Man, you already know the reason."

Shortly before, he noted on Instagram to his 89.5 million followers that the devil has no power over God while referencing Hillsong United's "Not Today."

"Let the devil know NOT TODAY! The devil has no power when you know the LIVING God! His name is JESUS!! Why worry when you can worship," he wrote.
