In March, Justin Bieber made the bold move to cancel all future meet-and-greets with fans. Today, the pop star is taking it one step further by telling fans he will no longer take any photos with them while he is out living his life.
In an epic Instagram rant Bieber said in part,
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.
The singer added he realizes people "will be disappointed," but he doesn't feel he owes anyone anything.
Fans were quick to comment on the post, pointing out that they, the people who ask for photos, are the only reason he is rich and famous in the first place.
One fan commented,
You should become a plumber. You will not win millions, but nobody will make you photos on the street. I do not know, just think about it.
That's called fame, and guess what, every celebrity gets overexposed. Lock yourself at home and you won't have to take pics with the people who brought you here.
There were, however, plenty of Beliebers who came out to support their idol.
One fan commented with support on the photo,
...Talking to him is way better and if you are a fan you should respect him put yourself in his shoes being followed 24/7 having flashes in your face all the time everywhere you go he is welling to stop and talk to people then pictures he has feelings and all celebrities feel the same way look at Kanye west just ask fans n many other please no pictures they don't listen.
Do you think Bieber owes it to his fans to take photos with them?
