When Justin Bieber stormed off the stage during a performance in Manchester, U.K., he wasn't angry at his fans. He just wanted them to listen.

The pop star penned an open letter that he shared on Twitter — and subsequently deleted — in which he addressed his sudden exit from the Oct. 23 show.

"All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit," the letter reads. "Certain cities aren't going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it's my job to just say, 'Hey, I'm not going to try to force anything.'"

Love u guys.. I'm going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people's spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.. Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression .. The pressure of meeting people's expectations of what I'm supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders. Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised. Can't tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn't so hard on me.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen ;)

Bieber fled the stage on Oct. 23 after his request for the crowd to keep quiet between songs was ignored. He later returned and explained that a screaming crowd limits his ability to connect with fans.

"It's not me trying to be an asshole," Bieber said in a video shot after he came back to finish the show. The pop star reportedly left the stage again later, out of frustration.

The original version of Bieber's letter is no longer available, but you can read it in full in the below screenshot (captured by Us Weekly).
