Justin Bieber might be turning into a little bit of a brat. In a rant on his Instagram account that was caught by TMZ before it was taken down and altered, the teen idol went off on people in the media who are saying that he's in rehab (really?) and to haters in general.

"if Anyone believes i need rehab thats [sic] their own stupidity lol I'm 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I've seen the whole world," he wrote.

But then, Bieber got mean. According to the gossip site, he wrote "to those comparing me to Lindsay Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements ;)"

So, that's not very nice. But at about 8:48 a.m., the rant came down, then went back up again later sans Lohan reference. Instead, it now reads:

Everyone in my team has been telling me, "keep the press happy" but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I'm going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me. My family is beyond proud, and nothing's been said by them, my grandparents wouldnt know how to reach to press even of they did want to so that was a lie and rehab cmon. if Anyone believes i need rehab thats their own stupidity lol I'm 19 with 5 number one albums, 19 and I've seen the whole world. 19 and I've accomplished more than I could've ever dreamed of, i'm 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning. I know my talent level and i know i got my head on straight. i know who i am and i know who i'm not My messege is to to believe. My albums could be about anything but my messages have been to never say never and believe, not to believe in me but to believe in yourself .. I honestly don't care if you don't believe in me because I believe in me, my friends believe, my family believe, my fans believe, and look where that's gotten me so far.. I'm writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart. Letting u know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger. I'm a good person with a big heart. And don't think I deserve all this negative press I've worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn't stop here... All this isn't easy. 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

It's all well and good that he's going off the advice of his team. Except for the part where he writes one thing, then deletes it, cleans it up and writes another.
