Through the high and lows, Justin Bieber has always made it a point to get on stage for his fans. I mean, will he ever live down throwing up mid-show?
Unfortunately, this time around Bieber can't just wipe off his face and keep singing. In fact, his face isn't allowing for much of anything right now. The singer posted a video on Instagram showing the right side of his face to be visibly paralyzed.
Earlier this week he opened about a recent health condition that forced him to cancel two concerts he had scheduled in Toronto, Canada. Bieber was set to perform at the Scotiobank Arena in downtown Toronto on Tuesday and Wednesday. However, after being diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, a virus that has left him with a form of facial paralysis, he had no choice but to reschedule the shows.
Justin Gets Personal
Bieber's video on Instagram gave fans an obvious look at his inability to perform.
He stated in the clip, "As you can see, this eye is not blinking,” he said on Instagram. “I can't smile on this side of my face…there's full paralysis in the center of my face.”
He continued, "So for those frustrated by my cancellations of the next shows, I'm just physically, obviously, incapable of doing them.”
The singer explained that this is his body's reaction to stress and telling him to "slow down," hoping that fans can understand.
Bieber shared with his followers, "This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn't the case. It's time to just rest and relax and get back to 100 percent so that I can do what I was born to do.”
He is doing what he can to get back on stage as soon as possible such as facial exercises but, he's unsure how long it will take him to heal.
Bieber was supposed to perform on June 10 in Washington but he had to cancel that show as well.
In the meantime, he's yet to reschedule his Canada stops on his world tour and it's unclear if any future performances will be postponed as well.
