London: Teenage singing star Justin Bieber is unhappy with reports that he caused a scene on the set of an Australian talk show by swearing at a crew member.

The 16-year-old allegedly cursed at a floor manager who directed him to the performance stage. Bieber has now taken to the internet to rubbish reports, insisting his bad behaviour is just "gossip", reports contactmusic.com.

In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page, he writes: "Family time with my mom couldn`t come at a better time... I was raised to respect others and not gossip... nor answer gossip with anger.

"I know my friends, family and fans know the person I am. Hearing adults spread lies and rumours is part of the job I guess. But... all I have to say is... kill `em with kindness. So everyone keep smiling... we are all blessed and I am still grateful and appreciate the opportunity you have all given me to do what I love."
