Here’s what he said:
People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is…people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen. But I simply feel like if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice.
There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m not a robot. There’s times when I get upset…times when I get angry, there’s times when I’m going to be frustrated. But I’m always going to be myself on this stage.

Fair enough, Biebs! Though we’d respect your decisions a little more if people weren’t paying an arm and a leg for tickets only to have you stomp off stage.
