TMZ cameras caught up with Justin Bieber following his tour cancellation announcement, and he had an apologetic message for fans.
"I love you guys, I think you guys are awesome," he says, addressing the fans. "I'm sorry for anyone who feels, like, disappointed or betrayed, it's not in my heart or anything, and have a blessed day." As for why he cancelled, Justin says everything is fine, he just needs some rest and relaxation after being on the road for over a year - his Purpose world tour kicked off March 9, 2016.
Meanwhile, John Mayer came to Justin's defense and commended his decision. "When someone pulls remaining dates of a tour, it means they would have done real damage to themselves if they kept going," John tweeted, adding, "We've lost so many great artists lately. I give Justin [two thumbs up] for realizing it was time to call it. You should too."
In a note on Instagram on Monday night, Bieber's longtime manager, Scooter Braun, thanked the tour's promoter, AEG Presents, and the singer's record-label parent company, Universal Music Group. But he also defended the cancellations, adding that "a man's soul and well-being I truly care about came first and We must all respect and honor that."
Justin announced Monday he was canceling the Purpose tour with just 14 dates remaining.
