Justin Bieber seems to be in need of a break from his Beliebers. The singer posted a message on his Instagram account announcing that he is "done taking pictures" with fans.
The Sorry hitmaker explained that he feels more often than not he is not treated like a human being. "I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity," his post read. "I realize people will be disappointed but I don't owe anybody a picture."
As for anybody who thinks he requires to pose for photo with them just because they bought his album, Bieber stated: "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."
Obviously, a number of his fans didn't take too well to the news, with one Instagram user replying to his post pointing out that "normal" is not what Bieber signed up for. "Your fans are the reason you are as successful as you are. The least you could do is take pictures with them," the individual with the profile name "braekess" wrote. "I'm sure it's annoying not being able to live a 'normal' life, but 'normal' is not what you signed up for. Get over it and stop being a douche."
Now, Bieber wasn't up for being called a douche simply because he wanted a little privacy and posted a screen shot of the message on his account along with a caption explaining: "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."
The new stand comes on the heels of his March announcement cancelling all future meet-and-greets with fans at his concerts because said they drained him emotionally and he became unhappy from other people's "spiritual energy".
