Justin Bieber offered a sort of mea culpa to his fans on Instagram saying he was "never going to be perfect" but hoped to learn from his mistakes - after a tumultuous week in which he abruptly canceled the rest of his world tour and accidentally hit a photographer with his truck. The 23-year-old singer, who pulled the plug on the remaining 14 dates of his "Purpose" world tour on July 24 and injured a photographer after a Beverly Hills church service two days later, says he had let his "broken relationships dictate the way I acted toward people." The Canadian pop star says the tour had taught him "so much about myself," in what he called a "very grammatically incorrect but its from the heart" social media post. After playing more than 150 shows, Bieber pulled out of his tour, citing only "unforeseen circumstances" at the time, which upset and worried his fans. Since breaking out as a teen pop singer, Bieber has amassed a devoted, but has also faced an intense public spotlight that includes several run-ins with the law.
