Justin Bieber announced on Tuesday that he's going to be canceling the upcoming meet and greets on his Purpose tour because they leave him feeling "drained and unhappy."
The 22-year-old "Sorry" singer shared the news in an Instagram post, writing, "I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people's spiritual energy."
"[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 continued. Shortly after the news was announced, "M&Gs" began trending worldwide on Twitter.
Bieber said that the "pressure of meting people's expectations" is too much for him to deal with and "puts a lot on my shoulders."
While the singer argues that he would "never want to disappoint" his fans, he feels that his energy and enthusiasm is best directed toward his music and live performances. "I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised," he explained.
"Can't tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn't so hard on me," Bieber concluded. "I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen."
It has not been announced if or when fans would receive refunds for the cancelled meet-and-greet events, tickets for which cost between $350 and $2000 according to Altitude Tickets, which handled the sale of the so-called "Ultimate #Purpose experience."
However, the tour suffered an inauspicious start when it turned out the word "Purpose" had been misspelled on the official concert T-shirts being sold at the venue. Check out the video below to hear more.
