However, the Baby hitmaker, who has recently rekindled his romance with on/off girlfriend Selena Gomez, believes the painful injury may delay the release of his upcoming music.
But he is adamant that it won’t cause any long-term issues with his career.
Justin reassured fans an hour later: ‘My ear drum might back us up a little but I’m still bringing you this new music. Much love. Damn u cliff diving! (sic).’

Meanwhile, it appears the singer is keen to turn over a new leaf following a number of run ins with the law over the past year.
He has even given up alcohol and ditched junk food in the hope of boosting his career.
A source said previously: ‘Justin has been boasting to his friends about his new healthy lifestyle.
‘He no longer drinks and has stopped eating junk food, too. He’s had a difficult few months and is hoping that this will give him a fresh start.’
He has been keeping things action packed, recently shooting an action-heavy music video in his favourite neighborhood – Venice, California.
The singer was seen playing basketball and skateboarding in the beachside suburb, which he has been spending an inordinate amount of time in lately.
On the love life front, he was spotted out and about partying with former and potentially current flame Selena Gomez last weekend in Hollywood.
