(Newser) – Justin Bieber has explained his abrupt cancellation of the rest of his world tour. Sort of. In a very long Instagram post that appears to be a picture of a Microsoft Word document, Bieber says that it all has to do with sustainability and his future plans for a family, USA Today reports. "I've learned the more you appreciate your calling the more you want to protect your calling," he wrote. "Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE.. I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable. So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be."

The post, which multiple outlets referred to as "rambling," also addressed Bieber's past mistakes, which he says he's learned from; he thanked those who have helped him "build my character back up" recently. Bieber also acknowledged the message was "VERY GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT BUT ITS FROM THE HEART" and noted that "THERES SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IMPERFECTIONS!!" TMZ reported last week that Bieber canceled the tour in order to "[rededicate] his life to Christ," per anonymous insiders, and the Daily Beast takes an extensive look at Bieber's involvement with the Hillsong Church since 2015.
