Celebrity gossip websites are currently buzzing about the fact that Justin got booed by his own Beliebers at his own concert—something that has almost never happened before (except that time he performed at the CFL Grey Cup).

So, of course, the pop star felt the need to speak out and defend himself.

Apparently, the news going around is that the “Boyfriend” singer was supposed to go on at 8:30 PM at his scheduled show on Monday at London’s O2 Arena, but did not hit the stage until well after 10:30 PM. But those aren’t the cold, hard facts… according to Justin, anyway. The singer tweeted:

“last night i was scheduled after 3 opening acts to go on stage at 935 not 830 but because of some technical issues i got on at 10:10..so i was 40 min late to stage. there is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset. However it was great show and Im proud of that and tonight we will run on time and look forward to putting on an amazing show for everyone in attendance.”

He then went on to blame the media for the “exaggerated” account of his tardiness:

“my relationship with the media is not always easy but im trying. Im all about the music and the performance and i respect my fans. i never have any intent to upset or let anyone down. and Im not okay with things being exaggerated. once again sorry for anyone upset.”

What do you think of Justin‘s apology?
