In the video, Bieber attempts to smile, blink, and move his face but one side remained still as he continued to speak.
He added: “So for those who are frustrated by my cancelations of the next shows, I’m just physically, obviously not able of doing them. This is pretty serious as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case but obviously my body is telling me I gotta slow down. I hope you guys understand, and I’ll be using this time to just rest and relax and get back to 100% so I can do what I was born to do. But in the meantime, this ain’t it.”
Bieber did not mention treatment in his video, but said he has been doing facial exercises to try to regain movement. The What Do You Mean singer added he is not sure when he will recover. He said: “We don’t know how much time it is going to be but it’s going to be okay, I have hope and I trust God. I trust it is all for a reason. I’m not sure what that is right now but in the meantime I am going to rest.”
