Justin Bieber tells fans why he walked off stage during concert

Updated: 

Justin Bieber has apparently written a letter telling fans why he stormed off stage at a recent show.

The pop sensation walked off during a concert in Manchester, one of his Purpose world tour gigs, after pleading with the audience to stop screaming between songs.

He returned to the stage, and later said: "I feel that people were just not giving me the same respect back and it hurts a bit."

Various US outlets have now reported that this weekend Justin penned a note on Twitter explaining himself - although he then deleted it.

E! News quoted the Sorry singer as saying that he had just wanted people "to listen".

He said: "People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is... people try to twist things, some people don't want to listen.

"But I simply feel like, if I didn't use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn't use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what's in my heart, then I'm doing myself injustice, and I'm not doing anybody in this audience any justice."

Justin, 22, said there would be times when he says the wrong thing, as he is only human.

He went on: "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."

He said: "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."

Justin referred to his loyal Beliebers as "amazing" in the letter.

And he wrapped up by saying: "When people try to twist things and say, 'Justin's angry at his fans. He doesn't want his fans to scream' that's not at all what I was doing.

"All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit."

However, the star later deleted the letter.
