Following his on-stage tantrum, during which he walked out after just one song on Thursday night, Justin Bieber blamed the “a rough week” he had with “no sleep” in an apology to fans.

“Sadly it’s been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be ‘on’ as they would say for the cameras, fans, etc.,” he wrote on Instagram. “In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen.”

The singer pulled a disappearing act during a performance in Oslo, Norway after a fan spilled liquid on the stage. Bieber tried to wipe it off, but when the audience interfered, he reached a breaking point.

“Guys, never mind. I’m done. I’m not doing the show,” the singer huffed, walking off the stage.

This came just one day after Bieber walked out of a Spanish radio interview when they asked him to help break the internet.

However, he hopes that fans will understand his mini-meltdown, and promises he will make it up to everyone during his next tour.

“Hopefully people will understand where I am coming from,” he continued. “I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding, not reacting. Unfortunately, people were affected by this as am I. For the people in the back I am so so sorry and for anyone I may have disappointed I’m sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people’s time I’ll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.”
