Pop megastar Justin Bieber let the press have a piece of his 19-year-old mind in a recent Instagram rant.
Since catching heat for being two hours late to his London show and lashing out at a photographer, the Biebs attracted more drama when he name-dropped Lindsay Lohan in the personal Insta-message against the media, who has drawn comparisons between the two child stars for their rowdy behavior in public.
“And to those comparing me to Lindsay Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements :)” the “Beauty and a Beat” singer posted in regards to Lohan’s rehab visits and recent tax woes. Bieber expressed his dislike for being likened to the actress, also writing, “…if Anyone believes I need rehab that’s their own stupidity…”
He later deleted the original rant with the reference to LiLo telling MTV News that, "My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say. I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now."
He ended on a happier note to his fans. “But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity," he said. "I love u. Thanks.”
