Justin Bieber Is ‘Done Taking Pictures’ With His Fans
Hey Beliebers, Justin Bieber doesn’t want a photo with you anymore.
The “Sorry” singer, who is seemingly charging fans $2,000 to meet his cardboard cutout backstage at his concerts, has declared that he will no longer take selfies with anyone. Not you. Not your mom. Not your dog.
In a new Instagram post, the 22-year-old rants about feeling like a “zoo animal” any time he interacts with a fan.
“If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture I’m done taking pictures,” he writes. “It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity.”
“And people who say ‘but I bought ur album’ know that you got my album and you got what you paid for AN ALBUM!” he continues. “It doesn’t say in fine print whenever you see me you also get a photo.”
In March, Bieber canceled all meet-and-greets on his tour after an alleged security incident. At the time, Bieber claimed these meet-and-greets — which fans pay anywhere from $900 to $2,000 for — leave him “drained and unhappy.”
Reports say fans who purchased VIP packages to meet the popstar will not be refunded unless they forfeit their concert ticket completely. Though not officially stated, it seems Bieber is allowing photo ops to those who are
wealthy and famous in his inner circle — like Wayne Gretzky’s 13-year-old daughter, who recently snapped a picture with the Canadian crooner backstage at one of his concerts.
In other words: Sorry plebes. (Or should we say: Bliebs?)
