Justin Bieber is really, really over taking pictures with fans.
After his barefoot walk around Boston, the 22-year-old singer went on an Instagram rant on Tuesday, continuing to air his frustrations with fans who come up to ask him for photos on the street.
"If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture. I’m done taking pictures," the Purpose artist wrote. "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 to keep my sanity."
"I realize people will be disappointed, but I don't owe anybody a picture," he concluded. "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."
Bieber is in Boston for two Purpose Tour shows, and while he didn't stop for photos, many fans snapped pics of their chance encounter with the barefoot celebrity.
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.
The singer's exhaustion with publicly meeting fans began in March, when the singer canceled scheduled meet and greets, saying that they left him feeling "drained and unhappy."
"[I] want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression," he wrote. "Can't tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn't so hard on me."
"I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen," Bieber added.
Then, over the weekend Bieber shared a photo of his new teeny tiny face tattoo.
