Justin Bieber wants you to know that he feels like a "zoo animal" and that he's done with taking pictures. So if you happen to bump into him anytime soon, under no circumstances may you lay your dirty paws on him or ask him for a sneaky snap. No exceptions.
Taking to his Instagram account, the Biebster recently spilled the beans about the downsides of fame once again, and revealed that he's really struggling with being in the public eye. He began the post by referring to himself quite eloquently as a caged beast:
"If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I'm not gonna take a picture I'm done taking pictures. 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."
In March, the artist also cancelled all his future fan meet-and-greets, admitting that they left him drained and unhappy. Speaking to his loyal fans this time round though, many of who had also obviously purchased his Purpose album, he added:
"I realize people will be disappointed but I don't owe anybody a picture. and people who say 'but I bought ur album' know that you got my album and you got what you paid for AN ALBUM! It doesn't say in fine print whenever you see me you also get a photo. Justin Bieber."
Here's the post in full:
So there you have it folks, respect Biebster's personal space please! And while you're at it, maybe out of courtesy also refrain from screaming in his face?
