Justin Bieber Cancels All Future Meet & Greets, Says They Make Him Depressed

Justin Bieber has taken to his Instagram account to announce the cancellation of all future meet and greets at his concerts.

The 22-year-old singer says that he leaves the meet and greets feeling “mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression” and he’d rather be in a better mood when preparing to perform his show.

“Love u guys.. I’m going to be canceling my meet and greets,” Justin said. “I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.

“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. “The pressure of meeting people’s expectations of what I’m supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders. Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised. Can’t tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn’t so hard on me.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I’m in to give you the best show you have ever seen ;).”

    he’s a basket case!!!! I think he needs to go away for awhile.

  • john

    Why would anyone wanna meet and greet him?

  • MonaLucy

    no one, that’s why he cancelled them :)

  • MonaLucy

    yes like forever

  • Kee FRIEND Leichtle

    Meeting his fans makes him depressed? WTF?! I think he thinks of himself as too good to take the time to talk to his fans. I wish people would see what a loser he is! He’s not sexy, his music is lame and he says the most bullshit things! He needs to just retire and be where he is meant to be. A frat house filled with marijuana and liquor and become that jail going drug addict he was always destined to be. I swear, he gets more lame every frickin’ year!

  • Fergie

    Good for him. He’s been doing really well and putting out music a hell of a lot of people like. His real fans should understand where he’s coming from and accept that. Celebrities are people too. Y’all need to stop hating on him so hard and just chill!!

  • Sara

    I can imagine that meeting hundreds of people a day can be taxing on a person. For the ones that have some negative to say, imagine going for 5 different job interviews a day and trying to convince the employer that they should hire you. That’s a lot!!! Energy is real and everyone’s energy isn’t pure and people depend on others to make them happy which pulls from people with good energy. Justin is definitely doing a good thing.

  • Fergie

    He did go away for a while and he stopped getting in trouble and doing dumb shit. He’s doing really well now. Good for him. I’m always happy to see people doing well!!

  • Ladyd712

    I think he needs to get out now. He cannot handle being a celebrity. Meet and greets with people who adore him makes him depressed? He needs to quit and go into therapy before it is too late.

  • Fergie

    I definitely understand what he’s saying about having to live up to everybody’s different expectations of you when you meet them and that being mentally draining. And picking up everyone’s different energies and carrying that with you throughout the day. If he wants to put his energy into giving his fans amazing shows then good for him. Who is anyone on here to judge anyone else?

  • plez

    What an ass. Things came to easy to this guy. If he had to do over 300 shows a year like Ed Sheeran than maybe he would be happy for the success he has rec’d. Rather that getting depressed with getting paid to talk and take pics with his fans.
    BTW Sheeran’s meet/greets are free.

  • CoCo Turtle

    They pay $2000 to meet him and have a photo taken. Even if only 100 per show turn out, that is $200,000 per night that he is walking away from. If you’ve seen any of the pics from these sessions, you’ve seen how drained Justin looks. I am sure he was talked into doing these in the first place, as it is a lot of money. But anyone who works with the public can sympathize– people suck! I dont blame him one bit.

  • Kanye Worst

    Those people are crazy to pay that

  • Kanye Worst

    sheeran sucks too

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    you are so easy into calling people crazy for having their flaws. not good

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Who told you Ed Sheeran is not tired as hell?

  • WhatCanyaDo

    There goes the 15 year old girls paying escort money fees to grab his hair. Escorts actually have a harder job having to have sex with the client.

  • Philipp

    I think it’s pretty courageous to come out with the truth like that and say it how it is. If he feels like his own healthy mindset is at stake he is allowed to be a little selfish.

  • Delovely1

    People act like he wasnt supposed to be doing dumb shxt…he was a teenager then. Who didnt do something stupid from age 13 to 18???? Thats when youre supposed to get it out of the way lol.

  • Mark Tercsak

    jusT wants your Mo-Money

  • Nicky

    I have seen enough stuff on Youtube from his so called meet & greet … In Sao Paulo they payed up to 2,000 $ for exactly 5 seconds of his time and as a thank you, they got dragged away and pushed out like some stray dogs not to mention that he comes up to 3 hours late to his OWN concerts or doesn’t show up at all. He treated his fans in Germany or in a couple of other European countries like dirt. They payed a few hundred Euros for the normal tickets and Mr. Bieber decided to come way too late, so that the young ones had to leave the venue, bc they were too you to be there after 10 PM. When the begin of a concert is set at 8 PM, then it is not 10.30 PM for him to go on stage. He deserves to get booed and that people dislike him.

  • matt9990

    Good for him! No serious artists do these bulls**t meet and greets.

  • logik69

    The fact Bieber is still making music makes me depressed.

    He’ll be more depressed when those fans finally stop buying his music as he clearly does not care about them at all.

  • logik69

    Professionals suck it up. And they are usually the ones who have the longevity in this business.

    If touring is too hard for widdle Justin he can quit anytime and live off his royalties sitting at home, well if anyone plays any of his music again after he quits. I don’t see any Life Time Achievement awards in his future.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    they suck it up and then we asking “where is my favorite artist”.
    Oh, he committed suicide. Sad for him.

  • Gina

    I’m sure he has anxiety and paranoia over what people may think of him because of his past antics. That probably causes him to be on high alert and try extra hard during meet and greets so that people don’t get a bad impression of him. I get that it can be stressful. On the other hand, those who are good people by nature don’t usually have to try too hard to give a good impression, nor do they need to overthink or stress about the impression they might leave others with. Usually people who have to pretend to be nice get very stressed and drained over constantly having to put on an act.

  • Mike1288

    I agree I am sure it gets to be alot. I wonder how many does he does it. 1 isnt so bad days if it would be exhausting.

  • millerz

    ya no he really didn’t go away for that long lol I’m talking years til he regroups. I like him I just think he’s a bit of a basket case lol
