Justin Bieber is apparently over taking photos with fans.
The 21- year old star posted a message to his Instagram on Tuesday (May 10) decreeing that he is “done taking pictures” and won’t participate if fans see him out in public.
“It has gotten to the point that people won’t even recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity,” he wrote on the post. “I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture. 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.”
Later, Justin Bieber responded to fan’s negative reaction to his no pictures with fans policy.
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.

In March Bieber canceled all his future fan meet-and-greets, saying they left him “drained and unhappy”.
