Updated 7:09 p.m.: Justin Bieber thinks he's pretty great - and he's tired of people trying to bring him down.

In an Instagram rant on Thursday, the teen heartthrob said he's tired of placating the media, denied rumors of a rehab check-in and even took a swipe at troubled star Lindsay Lohan, telling people comparing the two to "look at her 2012 tax statements."

He later deleted the LiLo dig, reposted a revised rant, and apologized for it to MTV News, saying he realized "what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say."

On Instagram, the 19-year-old also pumped up his own credentials, listing the huge success he's had at such a young age.

"I'm 19 with 5 number one albums," he said. "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."
