Justin Bieber is no Regina George.
"My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say," he told E! News. He initially told all the mean girls "comparing me to Lindsay Lohan [to] look at her 2012 tax statements ;)."
But the Biebs said he "immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show that I was really feeling."
And indeed, he did. In his new Instagram post, he still slammed the press for "countless lies" and perpetuating rehab rumors, but he took out his Lindsay dig. "All this isn't easy," he wrote instead. "I get angry sometimes. I'm human. I'm gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u. Thanks."
You're welcome, Justin. We love u, too.
