Justin Bieber shocked his avid fans when he canceled his Purpose World Tour concert series. The former boyfriend of Selena Gomez has become heavily involved with Hillsong Church in recent months, which pushed fans to speculate that the religious organization could have possibly influenced the singer’s decision.
