If you’re lucky enough to spot Justin Bieber out in the wild, don’t even think about approaching him for a photo. On Tuesday, the 22-year-old decreed he’s “done” taking pictures with fans, saying they make him feel like “a zoo animal.”
“If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture I’m done taking pictures,” Bieber wrote in an open letter on Instagram. “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 keep my sanity.”
This latest blow for Beliebers comes just two months after Bieber canceled meet-and-greets at his concerts, saying they make him feel “mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.” If this is the kind of action JB has to take to maintain a healthy mindset and prevent a breakdown, then hopefully fans will give him the privacy he needs.
