Another day, another thing Justin Bieber has done polarising fans across the world.
This morning the singer poster a note to his Instagram claiming he was never going to take another photo with fans again.
Never, ever again.
In his post he writes,
“If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna [sic] take a picture I’m done taking pictures.
“It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hit to me or recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna [sic] be able to keep my sanity.Advertisement
“I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture. [A]nd people who say “but I bought ur album” know that you got my album and you what you for AN ALBUM. It doesn’t say in fine print whenever you see me you also get a photo. Justin Beiber”
Yep, that’s right. No photos with the Biebs anymore. Many fans have been left outraged by his decision, claiming the reason he has his fame is because of his fan base support.
As one user writes, “You are where you are right now because of these people that you don’t want to take picture with anymore. They are the people who buy your albums, tickets for your concerts. At least you can do to return so much love is give them attention and take a simple picture with them….
Speaking of celebs, we ask some well-known Australians who their celebrity hall pass would be. It gets interesting…(Post continues after video.)
Or, as his more understanding fans framed it, “I understand that people get too crazy and it overwhelms you, I’m sorry. Stick to this if you like, I’d still love you. But we need to meet each other half way. We need to learn to stay calm and treat you like a human but you should also reward us with pictures/love for all that we do for you. I love you.”
This is honestly sounding more like a couple trying to resolve there relationship dilemmas than a pop star and their listeners.
Despite Bieber’s ban on all fan photos, you’ll be sure to be regularly kept up to date with his own selfies.
