Justin Bieber performed for 300,000 people in Mexico City Monday night, a crowd so huge it required thousands of police on the scene and served to launch the 18-year-old into icon status—as far as Scooter Braun is concerned. But even with everything he’s experienced on this promotional tour, it’s the simple things from Twitter messages to slipped phone numbers that keep him going. Just in case you’re an ardent Belieber who has ever wondered if all this hard work is actually for naught, The Bieb wants to you—yes, you, specifically—to know that he’s inspired by the fact that you find him so inspirational.
To personally deliver such an important message, Bieber filmed a video for his fans moments before taking the stage in MC. With just his face and his phone camera, Bieb breaks down the crux of his relationship with his Beliebers over four specific points, in under three minutes. And if you’ve listened to a Bieber cut in the last 12 months, considered yourself included:
YOUR SUPPORT HELPS NURSE HIM BACK TO HEALTH
“When I get sick, when I get hurt, you guys are the first to write messages to me, and I feel a responsibility and I hope that I’m there for you guys as much as you were there for me.”
IT’S HIS GOD-GIVEN DUTY TO SERVE YOU
“God has really blessed me, and he’s given me this platform so that I can do as much good as possible and sing my heart out for you guys.”
HIS LOVE WILL NEVER DIE
“I will always love you guys and I will always support you.”
AND HE’LL NEVER STOP BEING INSPIRED
“I just wanted to make this video and tell you guys that you inspire me just as much as I inspire you.”
To recap: Everyone loves everyone, and Bieber is always inspiring us to be inspired by each other–but mostly by him. There’s only room for love in the Belieber kingdom these days, but let’s see if the positivity waivers at all once Believe is out in full. Spoiler alert: it will only increase.
