Here's the reason Justin Bieber had to cancel his tour... we think

Why Biebs cut MN concert and others.

A lot of Justin Bieber fans have been scratching their heads since a surprise announcement last month that the singer had cancelled the rest of his "Purpose" tour – which included a stop at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

But now they're finally getting an answer from The Biebs himself, though it's not likely to clear up the mystery behind the cancellation any time soon. 

In a rather long and rambling statement issued via Instagram Wednesday night, the Canadian heartthrob said "me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE," adding, "I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable."

We're pretty sure he doesn't mean ecologically sustainable, because the message also includes statements like "I have let my insecurities get the best of me at times," and mentions of "broken relationships" dictating his recent behavior. 

So... what does it mean?

The official GoMN analysis? It sounds to us like Bieber has had some personal problems and just needs a little time off to deal with them (which isn't unusual for touring performers). 

But if you're looking for more of an explanation, you might consider this recent TMZ report saying Bieber cut the tour short because he'd "rededicated his life to Christ."

Make of that what you will, but it's probably worth noting a 2015 interview in which Bieber said he wanted to "live like Jesus."

His Minneapolis concert had been scheduled for Aug. 17.
