    Safe to say Justin Bieber's time across the pond hasn't exactly gone according to plan.

    Fresh off his "worst birthday" ever, the Biebs angered fans after arriving two hours late to his London concert, and although he later apologized and arrived two minutes (!) early to his next gig, he's still taking heat from the tabloids.

    So of course the Biebs took to Twitter to fire back at the hate and let loyal Beliebers know he's focusing on the "positive":

    Justin Bieber won't be fined for late London show

    "Rumors, rumors and more rumors," the pop star posted Wednesday morning. "Nothing more nothing less. might talk about them 1 day. rt now im just gonna be positive. cant bring me down."

    He continued, insisting he's not going to focus on the negative attention:

    "Im focused on the good things in life. im blessed and not forgetting it. im giving back every day for it. cant phase me," he wrote, before addressing the false reports and tabloid speculation, "Fake stories to sell papers i guess are part of the job. but im a good person. i know that. u cant tell me different. we know the truth."

    In addition to being criticized for his concert tardiness, Bieber also came under fire after he allegedly tried to bring underage members of his entourage (including 14-year-old Jayden Smith) into a London club for his circus-themed birthday bash. He later shot down the hot spot's underage claims in an Instagram declaration.

    But apparently that social media statement wasn't enough.

    "As long as my family, friends, and fans r with me u can say whatever. we are all equal in God's eyes &we have a responsibility to eachother," he continued on his Twitter rant, "so make up stories about fake fines and make no mention of the positive....," he added, alluding to the reports suggesting he would be fined for his late concert show. (For the record, Biebs is in the clear.)

    Justin Bieber apologizes to angry fans for arriving late to London show

    "Or say when i came out of my show with my shirt off because after performing for 2 hours i might be sweaty i was going into a club (really?)," he continued, "or any girl i stand next to is my girl or that i dont care, or that i dont feel, or that a 19 year old going to a club in europe is wild..." he vented to all 35 million followers, possibly addressing the reports of his new rumored flame, Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke, as well as the widespread criticism for his shirtless antics.

    "I understand it is part of the job to be judged...but judge me on the facts, judge me on the music, and be careful of the judgement u pass," he said, sharing some newly 19-year-old wisdom. "but know this...im only judged by one power, and i serve him."

    But that's not all the Biebs had to say.

    "So yeah I will continue being me. i will continue to serve, to perform, to care, to love, to smile, to dance, to play, to sing...and u are welcome to join, because i carry no hate. We got to much love for that. Im about the music." he wrote, before finally concluding his social media outburst:

    "Now back to this music."

    You tell 'em, Biebs.
