In an attempt to dismiss the negative publicity, the 19-year-old singer fired off a frenzy of tweets Wednesday, slamming tabloids for printing "fake stories" and spreading "rumors."
"Rumors rumors and more rumors," Bieber began in the 12-tweet rant. "Nothing more nothing less. might talk about them 1 day. rt now im just gonna be positive. cant bring me down."
"im focused on the good things in life. im blessed and not forgetting it. im giving back every day for it. cant phase me.
fake stories to sell papers i guess are part of the job. but im a good person. i know that. u cant tell me different. we know the truth
as long as my family, friends, and fans r with me u can say whatever we are all equal in God's eyes & we have a responsibility to eachother.
so make up stories about fake fines and make no mention of the positive....
or say when i came out of my show with my shirt off because after performing for 2 hours i might be sweaty i was going into a club (really?)
or any girl i stand next to is my girl or that i dont care, or that i dont feel, or that a 19 year old going to a club in europe is wild...
i understand it is part of the job to be judged...but judge me on the facts, judge me on the music, and be careful of the judgement u pass
but know this...im only judged by one power, and i serve him
so yeah I will continue being me. i will continue to serve, to perform, to care, to love, to smile, to dance, to play, to sing...
and u are welcome to join, because i carry no hate. We got to much love for that. Im about the music."
Bieber ended his Twitter statement on a positive note:
Gonna enjoy the day and keep smiling. so should all of u. Much love. i see u #beliebers = i love u— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) March 6, 2013
