Justin Bieber Announced He’s Done Taking Selfies With Fans
You guys, Justin Bieber has a problem, and the only prescription is no more selfies with fans.
On Tuesday afternoon, Justin Bieber posted a clearly well-thought out mini-essay on his Instagram explaining how constant selfie requests from fans makes him feel like a “zoo animal.”
After receiving what we’re confident was hundreds if not thousands of negative responses, Justin picked one at random and decided to respond to it.
The mad fan called Bieber “a prick” and “a douche” and advised him to “get over it” because it’s just a fact of life that celebrities don’t get to have normal lives.
Obviously, Bieber did not agree.
Braekess you are so right btw your Instagram name is fire. Years ago it was impossible to even take a picture at anytime not everyone was accessible to a camera now everyone has a camera phone and Now it’s just a different thing.If you think setting boundaries is being a douche I’m the biggest douche around but I think it’s smart and will be the only way I last. I wanna enjoy life and not be a slave to the world and their demands of what they think I need to do!! I love the fact that I am able to make people happy but cmon if you truly were in my position you would understand how tiring it is ( boo hoo Justin get over it) I’m going to keep making decisions I feel are fit for my growth and no human being will make me feel bad for it.

It’s hard to say who’s in the right here, so we’re not even going to attempt to go there.
What is becoming clear is that Justin Bieber is slowly but surely withdrawing away from all IRL fan interactions.
Earlier this year he cancelled the rest of the meet-and-greets for his tour because they made him feel “mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression,” and his decision to stop taking selfies with fans kind of seems like the next logical step.
All Bieber wants to do now is focus on giving concerts, dropping albums and having really dope Instagram/Snapchat accounts, which to put things into perspective, is still more than the Beatles decided to give fans after they’d tired of dealing with Beatlemania in the 60s.
Basically what we’re trying to say is, frame those selfies you have with Justin now, because they’re about to be collectors’ items.
