The Biebs starts his social media statement with:
"Everyone in my team had been telling me to "keep the press happy" but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now."
With recent media reports claiming that Justin has been spiraling out of control and heading for a breakdown, Justin states, "I don't think I deserve all of this negative press. I've worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn't stop here. I'm growing up finding myself while having people watch me and criticize me everyday i think i'm doing pretty damn good."
He continues by shooting down the supposed lies about rehab and letting his family down...
"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 wouldn't know how to reach the press even if they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. If anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol."
Despite what the public may think about the young starlet, Justin believes that he has accomplished a lot already at the age of 19:
"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."
Next is an inspiring message to all of his "Beliebers":
"My message is to 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, and look where that's gotten me so far..I'm writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart."
Justin states that he is proud of himself and felt it was necessary to clear up the negative image the press has been portraying,
"Letting you know first hand how I feel rather than have these stories linger. I'm a good person with a big heart."
And finally, the "Never say Never" singer throws a "zinger" at the #1 child star gone crazy...
"And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan look at hr 2012 tax statements ;)."
There you have it from Justin Bieber himself, suggesting not to "Believe" everything you read...
