Los Angeles, April 2 (IANS) Singer Justin Bieber told his fans that Easter is not about a bunny.
The 24-year-old took to social media this Easter on Sunday and had some words for 98 million followers about what the holiday is really about, reports eonline.com.
The “Sorry” hitmaker wrote a note that read: “Jesus has changed my life. Easter is not about a bunny, it’s a reminder that my Jesus died on the cross for my sins and then rose from the dead defeating death! I believe this happened and it changes everything.”
The Canadian, who has been devoted to the Hillsong Church and has often spoken about his love of Jesus over the years, added: “I am set free from bondage and shame I am a child of the most high God and he loves me exactly for where I am, how I am, who I am.”
Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
The popular pastel-filled holiday is often enjoyed by children and families, using the image of an “Easter bunny” who is known for planting colourful Easter eggs for treasure-hungry children.
Shortly after the bunny-bopping post, Bieber posted a photograph of himself on Instagram, holding up a stuffed animal rabbit and wearing rabbit-eared glasses.
The popstar wrote: “Remember when I said easter isn’t about bunnies… well I lied.”
