Heads up: Top comment and controversy
Justin Bieber's Instagram rant: edited highlights
15 March 2013 11:15 AM
Justin Bieber has brought the wrath of Lindsay Lohan upon his young head after a rant posted on Instagram concluded with a dig at the Hollywood hellraiser’s financial affairs.
The message, uploaded to Bieber’s Instagram last night, churns through 250 words of grievance with the press and associated haters before ending with an unprompted jab at Lohan.
Anyone who compares young Mr Bieber with the Mean Girls star, writes Bieber, should “look at her 2012 tax statements”. (And that, Beliebers, is how to kick somebody when they’re down). The post was later edited to remove mention of Lohan and Bieber apologised.
Sources close to Lohan have let it be known she felt the teen’s comments were “senseless and mean”.
But make your own mind up:
“Everyone in my team has been telling me, ‘keep the press happy’ but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I'm going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me. My family is beyond proud...and rehab cmon, if Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol...
"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 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 My message is to believe...
"My albums could be about anything but my messages have never been to say never and 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 growing up finding myself while having people watch me and criticise me everyday i think im doing pretty damn good. And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements :)"
