With the release of last year’s Purpose, it seemed that Justin Bieber was making a concerted effort to put his troublemaking ways behind him, and actually come out with some legitimate jams. But recently he’s started to act out again, having some contentious moments with fans while on tour. A man can leave his monkey behind, but not his sense of entitlement, it seems. Recently, Bieber walked off his stage in Manchester, apparently peeved that his fans were being too loud. “I want to be able to say something,“ he told the crowd. “When you guys are screaming it’s hard to—”

Now he seems to be trying to offer up some justification for his actions. Per Variety, he posted a missive about his behavior in a tweet, and then deleted it. “There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human,” he wrote. “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. 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.” So what have we learned? Well, we know for sure now that Justin Bieber is not a robot.
