Justin Bieber Prefers That His Fans ‘Act a Little Bit More Sane’
If you haven’t gotten the message already, Justin Bieber would like you to chill the fuck out when you see him in person.
After scolding his fans numerous times for being too loud at his concerts, the singer is speaking out yet again how a good Belieber should behave. In a new clip for the documentary Bodyguards: Secret Lives from the Watchtower, the 22-year-old opens up about how fans’ behaviors have changed over the years.
Claiming that Beliebers used to be a lot more handsy in the past, Bieber admits that his followers have seemingly toned it down these days — though apparently not enough given that he literally walked out on them just weeks ago.
“As the fans get older and know themselves more they understand how to act,” he says. “They actually want to act a little bit more sane so that maybe they get my attention. Because at this point, if you’re screaming and super overwhelming, it’s hard for me to connect with you.”
Bieber also stresses that he needs his own personal space and fans should respect that, saying, “I say the hardest thing is just space. So having security it creates space, it creates boundaries, it creates a safe space for me.”
As previously reported, Bieber has been giving stern talks to his fans during his shows to quiet them down.
“I don’t mind cutting the bullshit,” he said onstage during a U.K. stop on Oct. 20, 2016. “I’m just trying to engage but if you guys don’t wanna do that then we can just play the music. This is my purpose.”
