Justin Bieber is saying sorry, and not just in his latest single “Sorry.”

On Thursday, the pop star walked off stage during a performance in Oslo, Norway for the talk show Senkveld after only one song.

What was supposed to be a five or six song setlist was cut short when Bieber, 21, got frustrated while belting out his hit single “Boyfriend.” Beliebers in attendance recorded the moment, which quickly spread online.

“Yo listen to me, are you listening to me? OK I’m trying to wipe the floor, give me a second yo,” the Canadian singer yells adding, “guys, never mind, I’m done. I’m not doing the show.”

Hours later, Bieber shared an explanation for his abrupt exit on his Instagram.

“Sadly it’s Been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be “on” as they would say for cameras fans etc. In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen,” he wrote.

“Hopefully people will understand where I am coming from. I don’t always handle things the right way but I’m human and I’m working on getting better at responding not reacting.

“Unfortunately people were affected by this as am I. For the people in the back I am so sorry and for anyone I may have disappointed im sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people’s time I’ll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.. With love Justin.”

As of late, Bieber’s promotional gigs for his upcoming album Purpose have not been going as planned.

Just one day prior to his Senkveld appearance, he walked out of an interview with Spanish radio station 40 Principales.

Purpose is slated for a Nov. 13 release.
