Justin Bieber has lashed out at the tabloid press in a Twitter.com rant after having enough of the negative media attention surrounding his current tour of the U.K.
The Baby hitmaker has found himself under attack for various reasons since arriving for the British leg of his Believe world trek last week (ends03Mar13), and the teenager is sick of the reports.
He has taken aim at reporters for trying to bring him down, insisting claims that he faced a hefty fine for appearing onstage almost two hours late for the first of four concerts at London's O2 Arena on Monday (04Mar13) were made up.
The pop superstar also appeared to dismiss rumors suggesting he's dating 17-year-old British singer Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke, and took aim at criticism of his decision to party while on tour to celebrate his 19th birthday (01Mar13).
In a series of angry messages on Wednesday (06Mar13), the teenager writes, "rumors rumors and more rumors. nothing more nothing less. might talk about them 1 day. rt (right) now im just gonna be positive. cant (sic) bring me down... im (sic) focused on the good things in life...
"fake stories to sell papers i guess are part of the job. but im a good person. i know that. u (sic) cant tell me different. we know the truth... u can say whatever... so make up stories about fake fines and make no mention of the positive... or say... any girl i stand next to is my girl... 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... 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 (sic) much love for that. Im about the music. Gonna enjoy the day and keep smiling. so should all of u. Much love. i see u #beliebers (fans) = i love u... now back to this music".
Bieber's trip to the U.K. got off to a rough start last week when he and his entourage were allegedly kicked out of London's Cirque du Soir nightclub as they celebrated his 19th birthday last Friday (01Mar13) after attempting to bring underage guests into the venue with him. He later blamed "overly aggressive dummies" for ruining his big night.
