Is Justin Bieber trying to tell us something just one day after the star-studded 2018 Met Gala?

On Tuesday, Bieber took to Instagram with a cryptic message about celebrities on social media, particularly, the "glamorous lifestyles" they portray.

"Hey world, that glamorous lifestyle you see portrayed by famous people on Instagram don't be fooled thinking their life is better than yours I can promise you it's not!" the 24-year-old singer wrote.

Given that the celebrity-packed Met Gala was on Monday night, some fans naturally assumed Bieber was referring to the high-profile event. Interestingly enough, Bieber has attended the Met Gala before, making an appearance in 2015, and showing up with his shirt unbuttoned at an after-party in 2016.

"They prob all had a sh** time at the met but they gotta look happy on the gram," one comment on the post reads.

Still, other Instagram followers pointed out that both of Bieber's ex-girlfriends -- 21-year-old Hailey Baldwin and 25-year-old Selena Gomez -- attended this year. Gomez showed up solo but reunited with pals Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner at the gala, while Baldwin attended with rumored boyfriend Shawn Mendes. Though Gomez didn't Instagram about her night out, Baldwin did share red carpet pics of herself and Mendes, as well as her stunning Tommy Hilfiger dress.

Of course, other fans just took the message to be a reaction to the toll social media takes on all its users.

"Life ain't easy for anyone," one comment reads. "For once someone is talking and posting facts and not just appearance, especially here on Instagram where everything is based on how good you and your life appear to other people. Wise words."

"Just throw the whole gram away, with the fakes and the phonies," another follower suggested.

Bieber has largely stayed out of the spotlight in recent months, though he has been active on social media. Last week, he showed support for Kanye West after the rapper's controversial tweets about his love for President Donald Trump and his headline-making interviews that revealed his battle with opioid addiction, his views on race relations and his opinion that slavery was “a choice.”

“Our job is to love not to always agree!” Bieber wrote on Instagram Stories. “Love you Kanye!”

Meanwhile, a source told ET in April that when it comes to Gomez and Bieber's on-again, off-again relationship, the two superstars are still very much on good terms, though the timing isn't right for a serious relationship.
