There's no right way to take a selfie, though there are self-taken photos that end up looking better than others. You have to consider lighting, angle and camera resolution, of course. But what about selfies with celebrities? When it comes to posing with the glitzy and glamorous, there's definitely a wrong and right way to go about it.
If you're not careful, you could spill a drink on your subject -- or, worse yet, treat the star like an object to be photographed with and not, you know, an actual person.
That's what Justin Bieber, who arrived in Australia over the weekend, wants his fans to know, as per a series of Snapchat updates he sent out recently.
So, here's the right way to ask for a photo with Justin (or any star, for that matter):

"The way that you ask or approach me when you want a photo with me is gonna determine if I take a photo or not. If I'm walking somewhere or arriving somewhere and you guys are asking to take a photo, if I don't respond, if I continue just walking, the likelihood is that I don't wanna take a photo at that moment," Justin says in the pensive snaps.

"Now, if you start screaming louder, that's not gonna make me wanna take a photo more. I wanna enjoy the moment just as you're enjoying the moment, but I cant enjoy it if I'm not feeling like there's any respect given to me at that moment. So if you're asking kindly, usually, the chances are I'll take a photo. But if, perhaps, I don't or I'm in a mood where I'm trying to take a photo at that moment."
Again, respect the space.Noel Vasquez/BET/Getty Images for BET
"Please just respect me and just treat me the way that you would wanna be treated. That's all. I just want us to be on the same page. It's like, why did you travel to see me in the first place? Was it really to see me? Or was it to get that moment of you seeing me so that you could tell people about it?"
Go forth and try to get yourself a new profile picture with your fave -- but do it respectfully.
