JUSTIN BIEBER speaks out in the wake of his drug controversy by saying that he’s “trying to be better.”

He should be, for all of his fans!

It has been a rough start of the year for Justin Bieber.

Other than celebrating 2o13 as an again-single guy, he was in the news after a photographer died while trying to take a photo of the singer’s white Ferrari that was being driven by Bieber‘s BFF Lil Twist, was rumored by the same pap to have been smoking a pipe in the car, and just recently, was seen holding what appeared to be marijuana in newly-released pics.

Although he didn’t address the latest controversy, he did write on his Twitter for his disappointed fans on Saturday:

“Everyday growing and learning. Trying to be better. U get knocked down, u get up.”

Justin continued:

“I see all of u. I hear all of u. I never want to let any of you down. I love u.”

He then sidesteps the damaging news by saying:

“Back on tour tomorrow. Ready to see u all smile. Time to do what I’m supposed to be doing. Performing.”

Always the brave teen with a blind eye towards the speculative media, he added:

“like i said…2013…new challenges. new doubters… I’m ready. We are ready. See u all tomorrow and everyday after that.”

Maybe a good challenge would be actually denying or owning up to the drug allegations, Justin.
