Justin Bieber: “I’m Done Taking Pictures”

For a while there, Justin Bieber was really on an upswing. But between the awkward show at Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center last week and the cool new face tattoo, it’s starting to feel like the Biebs is back in crisis mode. Now, he’s declared via Instagram that he’s “done taking pictures” with fans, because he’s tired of feeling like a zoo animal whenever he goes out:

Amy Schumer would agree — earlier this month, the comedian declared that she wouldn’t take pictures with fans anymore after an unpleasant encounter with a selfie-taking fan. Back in March, Justin Bieber also cancelled all of his tour meet-and-greets with fans, saying they left him “mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.”

UPDATE: Braekess is so right.

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.
